"Love Story" is a song performed by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. The song was written by Swift and produced by Nathan Chapman, alongside Swift. It was released on September 12, 2008 by Big Machine Records, as the lead single from Swift's second studio album Fearless (2008). The song was written about a love interest of Swift's who was not popular among Swift's family and friends. Because of the scenario, Swift related to the plot of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (1597) and used it as a source of inspiration to compose the song. However, she replaced Romeo and Juliet‍ '​s original tragic conclusion with a happy ending. It is a midtempo song with a dreamy soprano voice, while the melody continually builds. The lyrics are from the perspective of Juliet. Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

We were both young, when I first saw you.

I close my eyes and the flashback starts-

I`m standing there, on a balcony in summer air.

I 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 your 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, because we`re dead if they knew-

So close your eyes... escape this town for a little while.

Oh, Oh.

Cause you were Romeo - I was a scarlet letter,

And your 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`re trying 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 life story, baby, just say yes.

Oh, 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, Oh.

`cause we were both young when I first saw you.
