We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
You're standing there
On a balcony in summer air

See the lights,
See the party the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
And say hello
Little did you know

That I was Romeo I was throwing pebbles
And your daddy said stay away from Juliet
Yet you were crying on the staircase
Begging me please don't go, and you said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet cause we're dead if they knew
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while

Oh, oh, oh

Yeah I was Romeo you were a scarlet letter
And your daddy said stay away from Juliet
Yet you were everything to me
And I was begging you please don't go and you said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me, they're tryin' to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real,
Don't be afraid
We'll make it out of this mess
It's a love story baby just say yes, oh

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you would ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts to town you said

Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head, I don't know what to think
I knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring

And said

Marry me Juliet you'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Cause we were both young when I first saw you
