"Juliet, when we made love you used to cry."
Oh, god, do you remember the first time you made love, and it was so beautiful you wanted to cry? And maybe you did.
I had totally forgotten that moment until I heard that line.
What a line. What a song.
trivia on this song | Reviewer: nkc
FYI - the lyric "There's a place for us, you know the movie song" is a reference to a song title / lyric from West Side Story, which of course, is a re-imagining of the Romeo and Juliet story. Very genius reference by Knopfler. I also like the last lyric which implies that Romeo may have several 'Juliet's - maybe he isn't the hero the song makes him seem to be....

We read every word of the play together, watched the Zeffirelli, 1968 movie, and then the one with Leonardo and Claire Danes. Wish I'd known of this song, because it it ties the story all together, the drama, the movies, the music, the present. Best story I had the privilege to teach.
I love this song! | Reviewer: MArion | 1/22/08
This song is awesome, it conveys so much emotion and it's so touching, I love it. It is deffinetly better than the killer's version - Brandon's voice ruins what this orignal version has like at the end when he goes " you and me babe, hwo about it?" . It's adorable. ♥
Amazing | Reviewer: Andrea92 | 1/12/08
Maybe the best, under all the points of view, song I have ever heard, of course one of the best 5...
A little drop of love, magic and emotion in the everyday world.
The Killers verison ... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/17/07
This is one of the top five best songs I have ever heard -- The Killers version is even better than the original. Brandon Flowers's voice fits perfectly with the lyrics and instrumentals

This was our love song (my ex's and mine) | Reviewer: Izzy | 7/30/07
And I tell you this much--this song packs as much of an emotional punch now as it did back in 1990. It brings all of the emotions to the forefront.
