Intro: D A Bm G
We were both young when I first saw you
GI close my eyes and the flashback starts
I'm standing there on a balcony of summer air.D
See the lights, See the party, the ball gowns.
See you make your way through the crowd
BmAnd say hello;
Little did I know
G AThat you were Romeo; you were throwing pebbles,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet."G
And I was crying on the staircase
A Bm D
Begging you, 'Please don't go.' And I saidD
Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is run.
BmYou'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
G A D
It's a love story - baby just say yesD
So I sneak out to the garden to see you.
We keep quite 'cause we're dead if they know.
BmSo close your eyes;
Escape this town for a little while.
