Love Story

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flashback starts
I’m standing there
On a balcony in summer air

See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
See you make your way through the crowd and say hello
Little did I know
That you were Romeo
You were throwing pebbles and my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase, begging you, please don’t go
And I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I‘ll be waiting all that’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
Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter and my daddy said stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me, I was begging you, please don’t go
And I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I‘ll be waiting all that’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

Romeo save me, they’re trying 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 ooh

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading when I met you on the outskirts of town
And I 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
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said

Marry me Juliet, you never have to be alone
I love you and that‘s all I really know
I’ve talked to your Dad, go pick out a white dress
It‘s a love story, baby just say yes

Oh ooh
Oh ooh

Cause we were both young when I first saw you.
