We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes and the flashback starts..
.. you're standing there.. on a balcony in summer air.
See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns.
Making my way, I'm moving through the crowd to say "ello.."
Little did you know..
.. that I was Romeo, as I was throwing pebbles..
.. heard your father say "Stay away from Juliet!"
Had to leave you crying on the staircase.. begging me "Please don't go!"
So I said..
Julie I'll take you somewhere we can be alone.
Just be patient.. nothing left to do but run.
You'll be the princess, I'll be the prince..
It's a love story baby say "Yes."
So you sneak out to the garden I'm hiding..
.. we keep quiet cause we're dead if they find me.
Close your eyes.
.. escape this town for a little while.
I was Romeo, you were my Juliet.
Even my father said loving you is not worth it.
Had to leave you on crying on the staircase.. begging me "Please don't go!"
So I said..
Julie I'll save you, they'll never come between us!
Just hold on and love is gonna free us!
Don't be afraid, oh we'll make it through this!
It's a love story.. baby just say "Yes."
I'm sure she's tired of waiting.
Swear I'm on my way, just had to work some things out!
I hope her faith's not fading..
.. that was when I met her outskirts of town..
.. and I said..
Julie I apologize, didn't mean to scare you.
Need you more than anything.. I refuse to share you.
Saw it in her eyes, she didn't know what to think..
I knelt to the ground and I pulled out a ring..
"Marry me Juliet.You'll never have to be alone.
I love you and that's all that I really know!
I talked to our families, pick out a white dress..
.. it's a love story baby just say "Yes."
Cause we were both young when I first saw you.
