Love Story Lyrics with Chords

[Intro]
C G Am F

[Verse 1]
[C]We were both young when I first saw you
I [F]close my eyes, and the flashback starts
I’m standing [Am]there
On a balcony in [F]summer air
[C]See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
[F]See you make your way through the crowd
And say, [Am]”Hello”
Little did [G]I know

[Pre-Chorus]
That [F]you were Romeo, you were [G]throwing pebbles
And my [Am]daddy said, “Stay away from [C]Juliet”
And I was [F]crying on the staircase
[G]Begging you, “Please don’t [Am]go,” [F]and [G]I said

[Chorus]
[C]Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
[G]I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run
[Am]You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
[F]It’s a love story, [G]baby, just say “Yes” [C]

[Verse 2]
So [C]I sneak out to the garden to see you
[F]We keep quiet, ’cause we’re dead if they knew
So close your [Am]eyes
Escape this town for a [G]little while, oh, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause [F]you were Romeo, I was a [G]scarlet letter
And my [Am]daddy said, “Stay away from [C]Juliet”
But you were [F]everything to me I was
[G]begging you, “Please don’t [Am]go,” [F]and [G]I said

[Chorus]
[C]Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
[G]I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run
[Am]You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
[F]It’s a love story, [G]baby, just say “Yes” [C]
[C]Romeo, save me, they’re trying to tell me how to feel
[G]This love is difficult, but it’s real
[Am]Don’t be afraid, we’ll make it out of this mess
[F]It’s a love story, [G]baby, just say “Yes”

[Solo]
[C G Am F G]

[Bridge]
I got tired of [Am]waiting
[F]Wondering if [C]you were ever coming around [G]
My faith in you was [Am]fading [F]
When I [C]met you on the outskirts of [G]town

[Breakdown]
And I said, [C]”Romeo, save me, I’ve been feeling so alone
[G]I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is [Am]this in my head? I don’t know what to think”
He [F]knelt to the ground and [G]pulled out a ring, and said

[Chorus]
[D]”Marry me, Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone
[A]I love you, and that’s all I really know
I [Bm]talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
[G]It’s a love story, [A]baby, just say [D]’Yes'”

[Outro]
Oh, [A]oh
Oh, [Bm]oh
‘Cause [G]we were both young when I first saw [D]you
