  • Lyrics
  • Juliet waits at the border
    Of a creek without a corner
    Gazes into the dark
    Was it the moon or only
    Her fear of being lonely
    That gave her leave of her heart?
    Oh, oh, oh

    Oh Romeo (Romeo)
    Who would lay down her life? (Romeo)
    Swallow the poison, beck of the night
    Maybe I cried (maybe I cried)
    Just a teardrop or two (tear or two)
    I would not die for you
    I would not die for you

    Just another romantic depressant
    Giving in she becomes obsessive
    Maybe this time I'll learn
    Life's like a box of matches
    Sometimes the whole thing catches
    And all you can do is watch it burn
    Oh, oh, oh

    Oh Romeo (Romeo)
    Who would lay down her life? (Romeo)
    Swallow the poison, beck of the night
    Maybe I cried (maybe I cried)
    Just a teardrop or two (tear or two)
    I would not die for you
    I would not die for you

    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

    Juliet waits at the border
    Contemplates a new world order

    Oh Romeo (Romeo)
    Who would lay down her life? (Romeo)
    Swallow the poison, beck of the night
    Maybe I cried (maybe I cried)
    Just a teardrop or two (tear or two)
    I would not die for you
    I would not die for you

    I would not die for you
    Oh Romeo, oh Romeo, oh Romeo, Romeo, Romeo, Romeo, Romeo
    Oh Romeo, Romeo, Romeo, RomeoWriter/s: MATRACA MARIA BERG, GARY STEFAN HARRISON
