The Fratellis - Starcrossed Losers

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 would 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 would 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
