You used to write me letters
You'd send me records in the post
Like 'Born To Run', by Springsteen
You knew the songs I love the most
But with the sweetest sorrow
Told you some things just won't last

For you and I are passed our dancing days
I said it's not your fault, I lied
And I don't have time to watch you cry
And I'm thinking Romeo must die, ai, ai, ai, ai

I tried to treat you gently
I said I'd always be your friend
But now your hands are empty
You don't know how to let this end

So with the sweetest sorrow
Let me spell it out for you

For you and I are passed our dancing days
I said it's not your fault, I lied
I don't have time to watch you cry
And I'm thinking Romeo must die, ai, ai, ai, ai

Did you think I wouldn't notice
As if I wouldn't pass an eye
Did you think that you could hide it
All of your violent delights
[X2]

I said it's not your fault, I lied
I don't have time to watch you cry
And I'm thinking Romeo must die, ai, ai, ai, ai
[X2]
