Lyrics of Romeo And Juliet

Не могу уснуть, с ночи до утра
Это не бессонница, просто влюблена
Думала всегда - так не может быть
Только не выходит никак тебя забыть

Знаю, чувства уже не спрячешь
Вырвались наружу они.

Как Ромео и Джульета
За тобой готова хоть на край света
Может это все мне снится
Где найти ответ
Правда или нет
Как Ромео и Джульета
Мы с тобой свободные словно ветер
И не спрятаться не скрыться
Как волнует кровь
Первая любовь

Что произошло маме не понять
Луче ей не знать, что на сердце у меня
Бешено стучит
Рвется из груди
Но я все сомненья оставлю позади

Нам любовь подарила крылья
И открыла нам небеса

Как Ромео и Джульета
За тобой готова хоть на край света
Может это все мне снится
Где найти ответ
Правда или нет
Как Ромео и Джульета
Мы с тобой свободные словно ветер
И не спрятаться не скрыться
Как волнует кровь
Первая любовь (2 раза.)
I cannot sleep from night until morning
It is not insomnia, I am just in love
I always thought it couldn't be like this
But I cannot forget about you

I know I cannot hide my feelings
They are set free

Like Romeo and Juliet
I am ready to follow you until the world's end
Maybe I am dreaming
Where can I find the answer
Is it true or not
Like Romeo and Juliet
We are free like the wind
We cannot hide or escape
I can feel it in my blood
The first love

My mum won't understand what is happening
It's better she doesn't know that my heart is
Beating like crazy
Jumping out of my chest
But I keep all the doubts behind

The love has given us wings
And opened us heaven

Like Romeo and Juliet
I am ready to follow you until the world's end
Maybe I am dreaming
Where can I find the answer
Is it true or not
Like Romeo and Juliet
We are free like the wind
We cannot hide or escape
I can feel it in my blood
The first love
