Romeo and Juliet Lyrics
Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
Finds 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...

This song is about a couple who are in love, but they break up because "The time wasn't right." It's a sad sentiment, as the guy will always love the girl.

I think this song is first of all about a hard break up, barely accepted by 'Romeo', who's really desperate and who tries to remind to 'Juliet' how strong their love was, even if he knows (he just doesn't want it to be true) that she doesn't love him anymore, and that she might never have.
