Love Story....Taylor Swift's, not mine

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony of summer air

See the lights, 
See the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
You 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 know
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 try 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 go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh, oh, 

Oh, oh, 

Cause we were both young when I first saw you

-love story, Taylor Swift.

There's something about this song that really erm....I dunno, hit doesn't really seem to be the right word. Strike? Touch? Identified? Left? Ah well, it did something to me. It is a sweet song, maybe not exactly erm...meaningful (it's actually bordering on vanities of vanities methinks). A lot of guys might be tango-ing in the toilet (barf) when the song is played, but it is a very, romantic, sweet-with-extra-sugar song. Probably bad for your health if you take too much of it, but in small doses.....mmmmmmm.

I think every girl (even one as mad and insane as me) would have a secret longing for a Romeo and a perfect love story. I think about love stories, imagine them in my head quite often. I don't write them out, though....Maybe it's because I'm too embarrassed about it. Or maybe certain people will start thinking I'm getting lovesick over somebody, which I am NOT. 

I think I'll end my post here. This is just to say that I like this song, NOT that I want a Romeo. Not now. So people who think funny out there (you know who you are), DO NOT write my love story!

ps. Do you guys want the video here? or you couldn't care less?
