Love Story Lyrics

Known for writing "Tim McGraw" & "Our Song," Taylor Swift has fans singing "Love Story" lyrics from her Fearless album.


Love Story Lyrics:

We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes and the flashback starts:
I'm standing there on a balcony in summer air.

See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns.
See you make your way through the crowd
and 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 knew.
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're tryin' 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.'


I got tired of waiting,
Wondering if you were ever comin' around.
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town.

And 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 talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress;
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.'

Oh, oh.

We were both young when I first saw you...


Love Story: Background

Serving as a writer or co-writer for all the songs off of her self-titled debut album, Taylor Swift continued her magic with a pen when she wrote the song "Love Story." The song was the leadoff single from Taylor Swift's sophomore effort Fearless, which dropped in 2008. Accompanied by a banjo and guitar, the lyrics tell the story of two young lovers (a la Romeo and Juliet) whose parents don't want to see the two together. In the end, the couple's "difficult" but very "real" love prevails in the end. It is likely that the catchy lyrics of "Love Story" are stuck in the heads of fans with Taylor Swift tickets everywhere.
