You found me asleep in my soft white bed

Little did you know that I was feigning dead.

When you finally discovered what happened, you were scared.

And you ran to my parents, who surprisingly cared.

While I was asleep, you had me placed in our family tomb

Where my love found me, unaware of the doom.

And there I woke to find his corpse dead

He had killed himself without waiting for the friar instead.

So this is my sad story of which you have grieved,

For so many centuries, because you believed.

And now for the end, which I'm sure you know,

I killed myself, for my dearest Romeo
