D

We were both young when i first saw you

    G

I close my eyes and the flashback starts

                      Bm                            G

I’m standing there on a balcony and summer air

 

D

See the lights, See the party the ball gowns

    G

I see you make your way through the crowd

          Bm                    G

You say hello.  Little did I know

 

         G (1)                                     A (1)

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles

               Bm (1)                                D (1)

And my daddy said, “Stay away from Juliet,”

                G (1)                              A (1)

And I was crying on the staircase, Begging you please

         Bm (1)    G (½)      A (½)        

don't go,                 and I said

 

Chorus:

  D

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone

 A

I'll be waiting all there’s left to do is run

 Bm

You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess

 G (1)                   A (1)                    

It’s a love story, baby just say yes

 

/ D - - - / - - - - /

 

 D

So I sneak out to the garden to see you

 G

We keep quite because we're dead if they knew

                       Bm                                   G

So close your eyes, escape this town for a little while

 

             G (1)                                A (1)

‘Cause you were Romeo I was a scarlet letter

               Bm (1)                                D (1)

And my daddy said, “Stay away from Juliet,”

                    G (1)                                    A (1)

But you were everything to me and I was begging you please

         Bm (1)    G (½)      A (½)        

don't go,                 and I said

 

Chorus

 

Extended Chorus:

 D

Romeo save me, don’t try to tell me how to feel

  A

This love is difficult, but it’s real,

  Bm

Don’t be afraid, we’ll make it out of this mess

G (1)                   A (1)                    

It’s a love story, baby just say yes

 

Instrumental Chorus

 

                      Bm (1)   G (1)              

I got tired of waiting,       wondering if

 D (1)                             A (1)

you were ever coming around

                              Bm (1)   G (1)              

My faith in you was fading

            D (1)                                  A (1)

Then I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said

 

  D

Romeo save me, I've been feeling so alone

   A

I keep waiting for you but you never come

    Bm

Is this in my head, I don't know what to think

    G (1)                   A (1)                    

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said,

 

  E

Marry me Juliet you'll never have to be alone

   B

I love you and that’s all I really know

   C#m

I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress,

  A (1)                 B (1)

It’s a love story, baby just say yes

 

/ E - - - / - - - - / B - - - / - - - - / C#m - - - / - - - - /

 

            A                           

‘Cause we were both young when I first saw you

 

End on E
