Rod Stewart – Julia lyrics

[Verse 1]
Here's a song I sing for you about a girl that I once knew
She lived in a great big house with golden gates where servants bowed
For Julia

[Verse 2]
Unashamed I'd sit outside and wait for hours
Hoping that she'd climb down from her ivory towers
This beautiful girl as pretty as any flower had a hold on me

Upstairs in my lonely room I would dream of being cool
With Julia
I lived in obsessive bliss carefully planning my first kiss
Off Julia

[Verse 3]
One day I was feeling awfully brave and asked her
If she'd like to come on a date, I just had to
She bent down and gently kissed my face and said oh someday
Oh my god how I loved this girl
But no one ever said that love could burn

Waiting by the phone for days for a call that never came
From Julia
But love is cruel and has no wings but I still hear angels sing
For my Julia

[Verse 4]
I remember being overwhelmed by her prettiness
If only she would look my way I might be in business
To tell the truth she didn't even know I existed, Julia

Summer took her pretty clothes, winter came in grey and snow
Oh Julia
And I found out she'd moved away, her best friend said to the north country

[Verse 5]
Now all this happened many years ago my friend
Regrettably there is no happy end, oh no
She was 14, I was only 10, oh my Julia
