Matt Nathanson Romeo And Juliet Lyrics

A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade

Laying everybody low with a love song that he made

Finds a streetlight steps out of the shade

Says something like “you and me babe, how about it?”

Juliet says “hey, it’s Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack”

He’s underneath the window she’s singing “hey la my boyfriend’s back

You shouldn’t come around here singing up at people like that”

Anyway what you gonna do about it?

Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start

And I bet that you exploded into my heart

And I forget I forget the movie song

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

Juliet

Come up on different streets, they both were streets of shame

Both dirty, both mean, yes and the dream was just the same

And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real

How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?

When you can fall for chains of silver

You can fall for chains of gold

You can fall for pretty strangers

And the promises they hold

You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin, yeah

Now you just say “oh Romeo, yeah, you know I used to have a scene with him”

Juliet, when we made love you used to cry

You said “I love you like the stars above, I’ll love you ’til I die”

There’s a place for us you know the movie song

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

Juliet

I can’t do the talk, like the talk on the TV

And I can’t do a love song, like the way it’s meant to be

I can’t do everything, but I’ll do anything for you

I can’t do anything except be in love with you

And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be

All I do is keep the beat and the bad company

Now all I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme

Juliet, I’d do the stars with you any time

Juliet, when we made love you used to cry

You said I love you like the stars above, I’ll love you till I die

There’s a place for us you know the movie song

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

Juliet

A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade

Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made

Finds a convinient streetlight, steps out of the shade

Says something like “you and me babe, how about it?”

“You and me babe, how about it?”
