  • It started out as nothing in the strangest sense
    He was never in his right mind, no defense
    She prayed for his attention, often on repeat
    Every time she heard his name and his heartbeat

    He was in denial in his own backyard
    Pleading for the rain just to come down hard
    She bought him a bracelet and put it on his wrist
    Like every time before she got close but missed

    Romeo, Romeo I'm your Juliet
    I'm the pot of gold that you haven't found yet
    I'm here, right here
    He said Juliet I believe every word you say
    Time is running backwards every single day
    I'm here, right here

    Well it started out as nothing in the strangest place
    Beating like a drum in a hard work space
    He swore that he could feel something tugging on his sleeve
    He had the strangest sense that he was Adam, she was Eve

    She was in chains by her own good hand
    Keeping all the angels under her command
    He saw every detail burning like sun
    Couldn't get it straight that his race was run

    Romeo, Romeo tell me where you've been
    I would be complete if you'd only let me in
    I'm here, right here
    He said Juliet I told you I was only passing through
    If I had a moment I would spend it just with you
    I'm here, right here

    And they all fall down
    And they all fall down

    She said Romeo, Romeo I'm your Juliet
    I'm the pot of gold that you haven't found yet
    I'm here, right here
    He said Juliet I believe every word you say
    Time is running backwards every single day
    I'm here, right here

    She said Romeo, Romeo tell me where you've been
    I would be complete if you'd only let me in
    I'm here, right here
    And he said Juliet I told you I was only passing through
    If I had a moment I would spend it just with you
    I'm here, right here Writer/s: Anthony Hoffer, John Lawler
