Before Romeo met Juliet
He was just an impulsive guy

Before Juliet met Romeo
She was a girl who didn't know why

When they met one of a hundred nights
Her eyes dimmed the starlights

When her cheeks remained a rosy red
How did he think she was dead

He stopped the beating of his heart
So they'd never be too far apart

To match the silence of her slumbering
He made sure his heart ceased beating

He was a victim of his fatal flaw
She died because of what he saw

A bloody dagger and an empty poison vial
Two star-crossed lovers' funeral
