"Romeo" as written by and Bradley James Nowell....







I have a secret place inside my mind

where I keep hidden inspiration you will find.

And when my petty anger goes to my head

you'll find I'm better off dead.

Oh and I don't hold the key

to find out what is killing me its

been so long but somehow i just still care

I am a Romeo am a Romeo with no place to go



Sometimes I think you hate me hang up the phone

but take a closer look this hate I feel is my own.

So many times I've loved you, more than myself,

it's time to take that love and put it on the shelf.

Oh, and when I hold you tight,

it makes me want to scream and fight.

Love turned to hate,

some how it's just, how it's just,

how it's just to late.



I am a Romeo, am a Romeo with no place to go



Rock the reggae music, 'cause it sounds so fine, right!

When I hold you tight, in my arms you are mine,

but in the morning when I wake up and I still feel the same,

I know something goin on and I know who's to blame.

Everytime I tell you I'm the real Romeo,

it fills my soul and heart with anger, pain, and sorrow.

'cause' somthings going on and I think you should know,

so listen to my rhyme, 'cause this is how it goes:



In a tight mini short in a short mini skirt,

it feels so wrong and it feels so right.

the more I think about it you're a pain in the ass,

I told you many times, this time it's gonna last.

Want the kind of woman who can make me feel right,

not sloppy drunk sex on a Saturday night. 'cause,



I am a Romeo, am a Romeo with no place to go



Pull up your honey if you gotta one see,

because your down with the style, 'cause your down with me. oh,

rig the selector when your on the mixer,

along with Peter Mitchell upon the echo chamber. Two, one,

no they must see but no, they can't test me.

Two, three of them come and say you can't test me.

Because me rock the reggae music in a different stylee.

Me rock the kinda reggae music right on time, because your down with the

band that they call Sublime, right?



Don't take it too slow, don't take me wrong,

me know which way to go, me, me, me, me alright,

me rock the reggae music day and all night.



Makes you want to explode,

makes me want to explode,

makes me want to explode,

makes you want to explode,

sometimes it makes you want to explode.

    General CommentI'm really surprised that they didn't release this song on any of their first 3 albums. This one and Trenchtown Rock. I know TTR was supposed to be on 40 oz., but there wasn't enough room on the CD/cassette. This song should have been on 40 oz, but it wasn't, so they threw it on SHS. It's definitely a great song and has the feel of Roots of Creation at the end, plus a little Don't Push. It's a shame Brad had to die, because now there's Mr. Sellout Rome running the band, and I could never see him create anything close to this, or any Sublime song for that matter. He's a fat douchebag who is only in it for the money. And it seems to have paid off really well for him. He's got a solo career as well now. He very well could end being the next Justin Bieber. ;)

    General Commentthis song is so damn good. i'm gonna stop saying one song's my favorite by sublime though, cause i've said that for like 3 of their other songs, and my favorite changes weekly. but this song really does rock. the second verse is pure lyrical genius.

    General CommentHe's idealized this woman to be his "juliet", but his perfect relationship exists only in his head. He's beginning to realize that it's fake and each one of them living in a different reality drives them crazy.

    General CommentI think he enjoyed a relationship with a girl but to ralationship was based on a dirty way of life.

    Want the kind of woman who can make me feel right, not sloppy drunk sex on a Saturday night, cuz.

    This was a contradiction with the way of thinking of reggae music.. Love and respect. And in the morning he felt guilty to see he is not true to himself.. "Rock the reggae music, cuz it sounds so fine, right! When I hold you tight, in my arms you are mine, but in the morning when I wake up and I still feel the same"
