We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony in summer air

See the lights
See the party, the ball gowns
See you make your way through the crowd
And say hello, little did I know

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don't go, and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet cause we're dead if they knew
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while

Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me
I was begging you please don't go and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me, they're tryin to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh oh

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said

Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head? I don't know what to think
He knelt to the ground and 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 your dad, go 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...

    Love Story is such a good song and Taylor Swift is such a good singer, that means a good combo... :)

    Wow. Taylor Swift always amazes. I love all of her songs, and this one is just great. If only I could be his Juliet...

    Haiiz.. How i Wish.. This Love story Will Be in MY life.. this is My story.. I had my first bf in our school[[his name's Fritz]]. We started crushing on each other and he decided to court me. I loved him so I accepted it. We were against all odds. My parents didn't even knew about our relationship. In spite That fact, We sacrificed because we really loved each other. We talked and communicated via paper.[[how sad..]] But we were happy even though we hid our feelings. One day came when i saw him flirting and tickling another girl which is also our classmate[[Camille]]. I wrote a letter and told him what i felt with what i saw. I waited for his reply but nothing came in. I only knew that he doesn't want to talk to me anymore after almost 2 days. I knew it from his friends that he hates me because he doesn't want jealous girls. The next days I discovered the truth. The truth is he was BORED with our HIDDEN relationship. Yes, I was hurt, I admit that i was wrong but i only did it for our own good. I thought that the fact that we love each other would be enough. We only lasted 20 days. But I will love him forever. As of now, he's in the province and he didn't even said goodbye. I really miss him. Every night i looked in his picture [[w/c is printed on a paper and kept in my wallet.]] and cried. I always pray that he would at least forgive me and I'm not expecting him to love me again. I'm happy just to see him smile but now i can't see him anymore. I felt like i lost my life. I hope the meaning of this song will come to life, that he will come back, save me from this misery and love me more. But i know its impossible. I will never get over him and i will wait for him forever. I am thankful, so much, that I had a chance to love someone like him and to be loved by him. We're a real life fairy tale, WITH A TRAGIC ENDING...

    To Fritz: If ever you would be able to read this. I just wanna say that like what i said and as promised, I WILL LOVE YOU, ONLY YOU, FOREVER.
