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 hello, 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

Juliet, I'll take you somewhere we can be alone
Just be patient, nothing left to but run
You'll be the princess, I'll be the prince
It's a love story baby just 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 was not worth it
Had to leave you crying on the staircase
Begging me please don't go, so I said

Juliet, I'll take you somewhere we can be alone
Just be patient, nothing left to but run
You'll be the princess, I'll be the prince
It's a love story baby just say yes

Juliet I'll save you, they'll never come between us
Just hold on, the love is gonna free us
Don't be afraid, we'll make it through this
It's a love story baby just say yes
Oh oh

I'm sure she's tired of waiting
I 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 on the outskirts of town, and I said

Juliet, I apologize, didn't mean to scare you
Need you more than anything, and 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

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 our families, pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh, oh, oh, oh
'Cause we were both young when I first saw you

    it's about fighting for your true love.. i guess.. and maybe about a girl who thought that she wasn't loved by the guy but in the end.. the guy showed up and proposed to her.. LOL

    Its a forbidden love where the guy cant see his love and vice versa. All he knows is that it will eventualy work out

    These lyrics really speak to me because - basically - they're saying love has no bounds. It can beat anything... Even an over-protective father.

    It was about a love between Romeo and Juliet but when they were supposed to meet Juliet's faith in Romeo was fading and then Romeo shows up and proposes to her...
