He bursts through quiet sidestreets with a guitar and half a song
Looks around for Julie senses something's wrong
Overanxious Romeo, full of hearts and flowers,
Twenty-four years early, it was s'posed to be by hours
Juliet emerges alone and feeling down
In the wrong place, anyhow: Romeo cannot be found
Wonders if he'll ever show, other roles to play
Almost lost the memory. Future turning grey
Julie makes a quick leap Into someone's lap
Fights the lonely feeling of a friend slipped off the map
Thought it just a few days; time went on and on
Didn't notice Romeo was who she claimed and won
Romeo remembered and thought he had the key
Went rushing off to Julie; he felt like he was free
But don't forget this story has times and places wrong
He missed by one hub-capulet, and sings a mountain song
Perhaps a thousand Romeos and Juliets come to mind
But friends to share your heart with are hard as hell to find
While love may not endure long or suffer rich success
The talking goes on through the night on WBS
Ignore the fights, ignore the splits, ignore the thumpers, too
There will be lives that you can touch and make a part of you
Change pictures, handles, addresses, the feel will be the same
The cats are dragon Owan down, the Winds of Celts are tame.
