about

An acoustic ballad, ode to my wife, and the first song to use her name, Juliette. This song was written only after she had told me that four other songs I had written for my song of the week were repulsively bland. God bless a good friend and a good wife that can be brutally honest when nobody else will be.

lyrics

You're a Juliette but I'm
No Romeo
Throw up my hands and
You aim a cross bow
The streets are decayed empty
Desolate dead
I only wanna count the cracks
In the ceiling above your bed

Tonight
I just wanna swim out deep
Into the Ocean of your eyes
Til I can't see the land
And the tidal waves rise
And I drown

Lay my head down upon your chest
Quiet sussurations of your heart at rest
They cry in a whisper that I can only hear
Saying come one now why
Not try something real

Tonight
I just wanna swim out deep
Into the Ocean of your eyes
Til I can't see the land
And the tidal waves rise
And I drown

Tonight
I just wanna swim out deep
Into the Ocean of your eyes
Til I can't see the land
And the tidal waves rise
And I drown
