F C Dm Bb And I forget, I forget, the movie song Gm F Bb C Dm C F When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet? Verse II: Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame Both dirty both mean, yes and even and dream was just the same And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real. How can you look at me as if I was just another part of your deal Well you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold. you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin yeah Now you just say oh Romeo yeah, I used to have a scene with him. Chorus II: Juliet when we made love you used to cry you said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die There's a place for us, you know the movie song When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet? Verse III: I can't do the talk, like they talk on the tv I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be. I can't do anything, but I'd do anything for you. I cant't do anything but be in love with you. And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be All I do is keep the beat and bad company. All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme Juliet I'd do the stars with you anytime. Repeat Chorus II: Verse IV: A love struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade. Now he's laying everymody low, with a love song that he made. Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade Says something like you and me babe how about it outro: Bb C (as long as the lead player can do those tasty fills) p.s. A second guitarist playing in first position really fills this song out if you are not doing it with a full band.
