Love Story [Music Video][*]
by Taylor Swift



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 trying 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.

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, you'll pick out a white dress,
It's a love story, baby just say Yes."

Oh, oh.

We were both young when I first saw you
