Love Story” Worksheet

Directions: Read through Taylor Swift’s song lyrics “Love Story” and then answer the following questions.


We were both young when I first saw you
I closed my eyes and the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On the balcony in summer air

See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns


I see you make your way through the crowd

And say hello, little did I know

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said, “stay away from Juliet”
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you, please don't go

And I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story, baby, just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you

We keep quiet cause we’re dead if they knew

So close your eyes

Escape this town for a little while
Oh oh

Cause you were Romeo, I was the scarlet letter

And my daddy said, “stay away from Juliet”

But you were everything to me

I was begging you, please don’t go

And I said


Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone

I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run

You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess

It’s a love story, baby, just say yes

I got tired of waiting

Wondering if you were ever coming around

My faith in you is fading

When I met you on the outskirts of town

And I said

Romeo, save me

I’ve been feeling so alone

I keep waiting for you, but you never come

Is this in my head

I don’t know what to think.
