Romeo And Juliet Lyrics - The Killers

Review The Song (44)



[Dire Straits cover]

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

Juliet says, "Hey, it's Romeo, you nearly gave 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 was 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 both were streets of shame
Both dirty, both mean, yes and the dream was just the same
sponsored links
And I dream 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?

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
I said, "I love you like the stars above, "I love you till I die"
And 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 the talk on the 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, the bad company
And all I do is kiss you, through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet, I'd do the stars with you any time

Juliet, when we made love, you used to cry
I said, "I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die"
And 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, he sings the streets of serenade
Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
Find a convenient streetlight, steps out of the shade
He says something like, "You and me, babe, how about it?"

This song is so sad...I cried the first time I listened to it. The chorus was the killer for me and now I can't help but not listen to it after my tearful stage. I sing or listen to it at least once a week.It just hits me really deep for some reason. It's a beautiful song :)

I  this song! | Reviewer: Aleta Butterfly ismypseudonym | 11/20/11

Lobe this killer so does my family have heard this song so many times over the years-it my big sister cry as her late husband chose this song fir tier wedding (she's 34 now).
It's a truly great song and even I as an 11 yr old live listening to it (especially with my sister's 3 yr old son).
Brill song
Aleta Butterfly xxxx

Lovely | Reviewer: Grace | 7/29/11

My bf told me once: If we was driving to idk where, you and me alone, you know which song would be perfect...? RomeoAndJuliet by The Killers nd since that day i fell in love with that song x) haha i bet he doesnt even know what it says cuz he doesnt speak english :P but it was sweet tho xD

Come Back | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/1/10

I missed the killers when they were in South Africa - and I hate myself for it! This is the best covered song EVER!!! I'm getting married in a week and a half and this is our first song together on the dancefloor - By the Killers!
I love the personality in his voice - he doesn't have a perfect voice and that makes it amazing! Weird how that works hey? Same with Kings Of Leon...

Please give credit where it's due | Reviewer: Brunner | 11/29/10

I like the killers but their version doesnt even come anywhere near the original. This version could be best described as a cover band playing a request at someones party.
I guess Brendon knew it too thats why he's tried to ape Mark's vocal nuances althrough. They just couldnt mess with the original song structure - the subtle piano parts, the easy, percussive rhythm; although the guitarist thought it be best to do a simple strum (in a hip alternative context).
So ppl, if you like the lyrics to the song, do yourselves a favour - listen to the dire straits original, not bcoz daddy used to listen to that shit or bcoz brendon sang that song, but bcoz it is a truly amazing composition that listening to it is like slipping into a fairy tale. Replace the lute for the dobro and juliet for someone you truly love and Mark's intimate, vivid imagery will have you wanting to be in love always - doesnt matter if they turn you down.

love it | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/15/10

my gf of three years broke up with me, and that was over 7 months ago, and i still deep down inside have feelings for her, and i think this song is near perfect
,And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
All I do is keep the beat, the bad company
And all I do is kiss you, through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet, I'd do the stars with you any time

You Can Hear The Pain... | Reviewer: Eleanor | 10/23/10

This is such a beautifully done cover. (And better than the original in my view!)

Brandon Flower's vocals are so mournful... It brings you to tears... But good tears :)
Love can be bittersweet and painful, and this is the perfect song to go with it.

Love | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/11/10

I love this song, even though it's bittersweet and depressing. I heard it in the car when I was a kid once and loved it, then my friend sent me a link to it just now and I've grown obsessed in the space of half an hour.

luvvvss | Reviewer: sarah | 4/28/10

aaw im probably too young to understand this but i still love this so much
and i LOVE brandon flowers
a lot x

love at first sight | Reviewer: chuck | 4/26/10

i met a girl over the march break, fell in love with her 2 weeks later. but now i cant see her as much as i want too. then i listened to this song 3 days ago. now im tryin to learn this song to sing to her, cause it describes mour
situation perfectly.

flashback... | Reviewer: Frey Frey | 4/16/10

My crush used to listen to this song. This has to be the one he listened to, even though there's so many. He's in love like I'm with him, but with another chick, Don't criticize! This makes me feel happy for him...

*-* | Reviewer: MeL | 12/31/09

*sigh*...this song is really one of my favorites from the killers! It's so emotional, sweet but also pretty sad. It always makes me cry T~T
But I'm totally in Love with this song <3
The Killers are just amazing!! -^-^-

drowning in bittersweet nostalgia.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/5/09

I agree with the others about this cover by The Killers being way better than the original song, <3<3<3The Killers!! The soulful vocals make me drift, away from the cobwebs of being in this complicated relationship, insecure and vulnerable, into those days when everything was just so perfect! I don't know if this is meant to be, or is going somewhere....all i know is, nothing and noone can take you away from me. mucho amor para usted mos!
besos....
la suya hasta el final de mí

next album | Reviewer: Chris | 9/3/09

Their next album is supposed to be all covers like this one. They've been playing "Love Me Tender" by Elvis and they played "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by The Animals at their concert last night.

Wow... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/26/09

Wow, I always loved Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and this song is just amazing. I've never been in love, but this song is probably one of few songs that can actually put it into words if even a little bit. And the fact that The Killers covered it just makes it that much better :-)
