    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                    A

    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                                   A

    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
