ROMEO

Story Behind The Song

This was an attempt to create an "art song" that hopefully still had a hooky commercial feel. Instead of they typical chorus the distraught AAH! represents the anguished scream of despair.

Song Description

A passionate romance on the edge of collapse. The music is inspired by Latin and Flemenco artists like Paco DeLucia, Strunz & Farah, and The Gipsy Kings. The initial spark however, came from an unlikely source, namely Michael Penn's early 90's hits No Myth and This & That.

Lyrics

Jacqueline was Juliet and Romeo was I
I can't believe a love like that could turn into a lie
Jacqueline was Juliet and Romeo was I
I saw it fall apart before my eyes

Have you ever felt like the world was dancing on your fingertips
One day you're a clown and the next you're king of the world
Well life's a crazy gamble so you've got to play the game
Just when you're flying high you begin to fall

AAH AAH AAH AAH

Metaphors elude me contemplating laughter in the pouring rain
In my dreams she still walks beside me
The bitter truth is all she wants to be is a friend
All logic eludes me on the edge of madness am I going insane
In my dreams she still walks beside me
In my dreams my true love will never end

AAH AAH AAH AAH

She wanted more than I could provide
She needed more than the man that was I
Chasing castles her pie in the sky
She lived in a dreamland while down here I died

Should I save my soul and lose the girl or?
Should I break my heart on love's rocky road?
Should I turn and run with what I know or?
Should I roll the dice and take my chances?
Take that chance?

AAH AAH AAH AAH

SPANISH GUITAR SOLO

There've been places and there've been times when I could find
Some few traces of a love that's left me dead inside
I feel like I'm losing you and I don't know what to do
I feel like I'm losing you and there's nothing girl nothing I can do
Feels like I'm losing you now
Feels like I'm losing you now
Feels like I'm losing you now

AAH AAH AAH AAH
