Romeos and Juliets

There’s no straight line to my love

You’ve got to make your own path

Climb some walls or tear ‘em down

If you can find out where they’re at

 

Ain’t love a lot like breathing

You let it in; you let it out

You know fearless hearts survive somehow

Chorus:

We don’t have to wind up broken

Trade our love in for regrets

Leave all those words unspoken

Sleepin’ back to back in bed

We don’t have to make that last mistake

The one we can’t take back

Like all those other Romeos and Juliets

 

Sometimes I’m cold and restless

Sometimes melting in your arms

Most of the time I’m getting lost

In the shadow of my own heart

 

I want to say I love you

And I’d love to hear it too

Ain’t that what fearless hearts will do

 

Bridge:

And if the thought of love don’t scare you

My love, then you’re not thinking clear enough

But I’m willing to, if you’re willing to

 

Chorus

Ain’t love a lot like breathing

You let it in; you let it out

You know fearless hearts survive somehow...
