Singing a Love Story

Few months ago, at the height of Michael Jackson's death, I have been so engrossed singing The Way You Make Me Feel. Just to discover that I could actually let that out in the shower.

Now, I found another favorite. I was actually unaware of the name Taylor Swift; if not after seeing Aiza Seguerra while singing her version of the song Love Story from a past episode of ASAP (I know the song Love Story but actually that's the one from the 70's inspired by the movie taken from Erich Seagal's novel).

And so for the past few days, this has been running ad playing at the back of my head. (Never mind the ad at the beginning of the video).




Now, if only all love stories would abide by the lyrics of this song, it's going to be worthy to be lovesick. If you enjoyed the video, read the lyrics and immerse your thoughts:


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 quite cause we're dead if they knew
So close your eyes
Escape this down 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
And 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 I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me, then 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 would ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts to town 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 talk to your dad go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Cause we were both young when I first saw you
.

What else can I say now--how I wish I was Juliet. I loved the whole song but most especially the tenth stanza. Nothing would be sweeter than a Romeo talking to your dad to ask you for marriage right? But seriously, I just love it.
