C G Am F

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 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

‘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 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

Romeo, save me, they try 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

C G Am F G

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’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

Uh oh, uh oh

Cause we were both young when I first saw you
