Love Story

I woke up early for a Sunday morning and considering the fact that we had travelled the previous day. But I was in a hurry to talk to my loved ones. Once that was done I had some time on hand and I was exploring Deezer when I discovered this song. Even as I sat in that dark corner of my apartment with snow falling from a cloudy sky outside, suddenly rays of golden sunshine shone on me, my smile widened and my face brightened. It really turned my Sunday into a ‘Sun’day…I loved this one especially for how it turns around in the end : ) – Love Story by Taylor Swift…it makes me feel good every single time I hear it…

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyesAnd 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 quiet cause we're dead if they know
So close your eyes
Escape this town 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
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 and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me, they try to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real,
Don't be afraidWe'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 were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of 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 knealt 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 talked to your dad go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes!

Love Story is a sweet song to listen to. It has a nice music video with costumes from the days of Romeo and Juliet, and graceful ball dancing, and a view of the meadows…its nice to watch and feel good about. You can hear the song here: http://www.deezer.com/track/2420611 .

My favourite lines from the song apart from the end (ok as a girl I am completely allowed to love sloppy romantic portions of anything – songs, movies, books : ) ) are these:

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

Love is never a cakewalk. It takes effort…sometimes mammoth effort…but its all worthwhile in the end. One just needs to take the first step on the path strewn with flowers at some points and with painful thorns at others. Some people get more of one and less of another yet its everybody’s treasure…it’s the only treasure…and I wish for everyone to find this treasure : )

Like the song too... have heard it play on the radio once or twice.
You're so right about love being the 'only treasure'. NICE!
