"Romeo" as written by and Bradley James Nowell....
The air was colder
Eyes were heavy
The day a child who loved died
Your heart was choking on its sorrow
Your 13 year old innocent delight
And me I've spent my life in waiting
On one whose heart knew more than mine
And now the stars are in my window
And on my breath the moon light

Oh Romeo I can't explain this weight upon my chest
That you'd live to tell the story to a girl whose left for less
I have never cried for thinking Verona was not mine
Why am I pacing through her dusty streets?
I pray there is not tragedy this time

Oh how they'll love to claim its magic
How that somehow frees their hands
And they say they'd love to change the world
And meanwhile they watch it from the stands
But you and I are all alone here now
It's not what either of us planned
I'd be the last to think I'd learn to love
Your beauty took so long to understand

Oh Romeo I can't explain this weight upon my chest
That you'd live to tell the story to a girl whose left for less
I have never cried for thinking Verona was not mine
Why am I pacing through her dusty streets?
I pray there is not tragedy this time

Oh Romeo I can't explain this weight upon my chest
That you'd live to tell the story to a girl whose left for less
I have never cried for thinking Verona was not mine
Why am I pacing through her dusty streets?
I pray there is not tragedy this time
