We were both young when I first saw you
I closed 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 crowds to say 'hello'
Little did you know
That I was romeo and I was throwing pebbles
And your father said 'stay away from juliet'
That your crying on the staircase
Begging you please don't go
So I said

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

So you sneak out to the garden I'm hiding
We keep quiet cause were dead if they find us
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while

I was romeo, you were juliet
But your father said he loves you
It's not worth it
That you're crying on the staircase
Begging you please don't go
So I said

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

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

She got tired of waiting
I swear I'm on my way just had to work some things out
My hope in you's not fading
That's when I met you on the outskirts of town
And I said

Julie I apologise
I didn't mean to scare you
Need you more than anything
I refuse to share you
Sorry I didn't write to you
Didn't know what to think

CLAP YOUR HAAANDS!

Marry me juliet, you never have to be alone
I love you, and that's all I really know
Talked to our families, picked out a white dress
It's a love story, baby just say yes

Oh oh ooooooh
Oh oh ooooooh

Cause we were both young
When I first saw you
