Lay down, Juliet
You've got nowhere to go
I'm no Romeo
I want to live till I'm old

People, people talk
But they don't understand
Hold me, when you wake up
You will still have my hand

Morning will come,
Hemlock, I've none

Some day, Juliet
We'll have things of our own
I'll go door to door
Till I find us a home

What price, what price the love
Of a gangster or two
Hell take this family of mine
They've got nothing on you

Lay down the gun
And together we'll run

Still now, Juliet
I hear steps in the hall
Julie, sweet Juliet
Can you hear me at all?

Sweet Juliet,
Don't leave me yet...
