We were both young, when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flashback starts
I'm standing there, on a balcony of summer air

I see the lights; see the party, the ball gowns
You see me make your way through the crowd
And say hello, little did you know

That I was Romeo and I was throwing pebbles
And your daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet"
And 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
I'll be the prince and you'll be the princess
It's a love story, baby, just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
And we keep quiet, because we're dead if they knew
So close your eyes, escape this town for a little while

Cause I was Romeo - You were a scarlet letter
And your daddy said "Stay away from Juliet"
but you were everything to me
And you were 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
I'll be the prince and you'll be the princess
It's a love story, baby, just say yes

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

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you is fading
When I met you on the outskirts of 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
Then I kneel on the ground and pull 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-you'll pick the white dress
It's a love story, baby just say

Yes
