I pack my case, I check my face
I look a little bit older
I look a little bit colder
With one deep breath, and one big step
I move a little bit closer, I move a little bit closer
For reasons unknown

I caught my stride, I flew and flied
I know if destiny's kind, I've got the rest on my mind
Well, my heart - it don't beat, it don't beat the way it used to
And my eyes - they don't see you no more
And my lips - they don't kiss, they don't kiss the way they used to
And my eyes don't recognize you no more

For reasons unknown
For reasons unknown

It was an open chair
We sat down in the open chair
I said, if destiny's kind, I've got the rest on my mind
But my heart - it don't beat, it don't beat the way it used to
And my eyes - they don't see you no more
And my lips - they don't kiss, they don't kiss the way they used to
And my eyes don't recognize you at all

For reasons unknown
For reasons unknown

I said, my heart - it don't beat, it don't beat the way it used to
And my eyes don't recognize you no more
And my lips - they don't kiss, they don't kiss the way they used to
And my eyes don't recognize you no more

Romeo and Juliet (live)

length: 5:28
additional piano: Ted Sablay
composer: Mark Knopfler
lyricist: Mark Knopfler
A love struck Romeo sings a streetsuss serenade
Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
Finds a streetlight, steps out of the shade
Says something like "you and me babe, how about it?"

Juliet says "hey it's Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack"
He's underneath the window, she's singing "hey la my boyfriend's back,
You shouldn't come around here, singing up at people like that
Anyway, what you gonna do about it?"

Juliet the dice was loaded from the start
And I bet that you exploded in my heart
And I forget I forget the movie song
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

Come up on different streets they both were streets of shame
Both dirty both mean yes and the 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 one of your deals?

When 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
Now you just say oh Romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him

Juliet when we made love you used to cry
I 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?

I can't do the talk like they talk on TV
And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be
I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you
I can't do anything except 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
Julie I'd do the stars with you any time

Juliet when we made love you used to cry
I said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
And there's a place for us you know the movie song
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

A lovestruck Romeo sings a streetsuss serenade
Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it?

Romeo, enfermo de amor, canta una serenata callejera
deprimiendo a todo el mundo con su canción de amor.
Encuentra una farola apropiada, sale de las sombras,
y dice algo así como: "¿Qué hay de nosotros, nena?"

Julieta dice: "¡Ah! ¡Es Romeo!,
casi me matas del susto"
Él, bajo la ventana.
Ella canta "¡Laralá! Mi chico ha vuelto"
No deberías venir por aquí,
despertando a la gente con tus canciones.
De todos modos, ¿qué le vamos a hacer?

"Julieta, los dados estaban trucados desde el principio
y aposté y estallaste en mi corazón
y olvidé, olvidé... la canción de la película.
¿Cuándo te vas a dar cuenta de que, simplemente,
no era el mejor momento? Julieta"

Van por distintas calles,
calles de vergüenza
ambas sucias, ambas vulgares,
y el sueño era el mismo.
Y soñé tu sueño por ti
y ahora tu sueño es real.
¿Cómo me puedes mirar
como si yo fuera uno mas de tus líos?

Puedes ceder por cadenas de plata,
puedes ceder por cadenas de oro,
puedes enamorarte de atractivos desconocidos
y de sus promesas.
Tu me lo prometiste todo,
me prometiste el oro y el moro,
y ahora sólo sueltas: "¿Romeo?
Ah! Sí, tuve una historia con él."

Julieta, cuando hacíamos el amor solías llorar
Te decía: "Te quiero como a las estrellas del firmamento.
Te querré hasta la muerte"
Hay un lugar para nosotros, ya conoces la canción
¿Cuándo te vas a dar cuenta de
que no era el momento apropiado, Julieta?

No se hablar como lo hacen en TV
y no se hacer una canción de amor como se debería hacer.
No lo puedo hacer todo, pero haría cualquier cosa por ti.
No puedo hacer nada excepto estar enamorado de ti.

Todo lo que hago es extrañarte, y a la forma como estabamos juntos.
Todo lo que hago es mantener el latido y las malas compañías.
Todo lo que hago es besarte a través de los versos de un poema.
Julieta, haría las estrellas contigo en cualquier momento.

Julieta, cuando hacíamos el amor solías llorar.
Te decía: "Te quiero como a las estrellas del cielo.
Te querré hasta la muerte"
Hay un lugar para nosotros, ya conoces la canción
¿Cuándo te vas a dar cuenta de
que no era el momento apropiado, Julieta?

Romeo, enfermo de amor, canta una serenata callejera
deprimiendo a todo el mundo con su canción de amor.
Encuentra una farola apropiada, sale de las sombras,
y dice algo así como: "¿Qué hay de nosotros, nena?"
