Romeo And Juliet Lyrics


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

Juliet says hey it's Romeo you nearly gimme 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 were loaded from the start
And I bet and 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 booth 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
You 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 Orion
Julie I'd do the stars with you any time

Juliet when we made love you used to cry
You 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?

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

Romeo And Juliet
  • This song was inspired by Mark Knopfler's broken romance with Holly Vincent, who was the leader of the band Holly And The Italians. Some of the lyrics indicate that Knopfler felt she used him to boost her career.
  • The line, "Now you just say, oh Romeo, yeah, you know I used to have a scene with him," came from an interview where Holly Vincent was quoted as saying: "What happened was that I had a scene with Mark Knopfler and it got to the point where he couldn't handle it and we split up."
  • Knopfler's younger brother David, how was rhythm guitarist in Dire Straits, left the band during the album sessions. Having two brothers in the same band caused tension and arguments. Said David: "I left because it was no longer possible for Mark and I to work in the same band. We'd be walking around in the studio with eyes averted to the floor. We no longer had a communicating relationship."
  • Roy Bittan from Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band played keyboards on the album.
  • This song is about a couple who are in love, but they break up because "The time wasn't right." It's a sad sentiment, as the guy will always love the girl.
  • This is played in the movie Empire Records, although it does not appear on the soundtrack.
  • Dire Straits recorded a popular live version for their album On The Night.
  • Making Movies was recorded at The Power Station in New York City with producer Jimmy Iovine. He had been engineer/mixer on Bruce Springsteen's Born To Run and producer on Patti Smith's Easter.
  • The Killers covered this on their 2007 B-sides, covers and rarities compilation Sawdust. In an interview with Q magazine January 2008, the band's drummer Ronnie Vannucci explained why they chose this song: "We've covered 'Romeo And Juliet' because it's a great song - Brandon was really into it. The original idea was to do the song with Johnny Borrell (Vocalist of British band Razorlight) though, but he got really sick and couldn't do it." Frontman Brandon Flowers added: "We're not overly anxious about Dire Straits, though. We're not ashamed of covering 'Romeo And Juliet,' either. It's one of the finest songs ever. Brilliant melodies."
