Balcony Scene

i)

Trust me, this isn’t my doing

You can choose any friend

But family? That’s the bitter end




ii)

I could be anything you want

Say the word, we’ll elope

Run from convention’s rope




iii)

I come to you cap in hand

profess my love for you on bended knee

don’t worry about disputative families




iv)

Yes, he’s my father

I, his loving son

But he couldn’t stop us with a loaded gun




v)

Here I am in plain sight

I fear nothing, have nothing to hide

Take my hand, let's live
