On a Saturday night in a pre-pandemic world I was playing with @rockpapertexas in a Vancouver pub when I saw this girl with dreadlocks and a shaved head. So I had the idea of writing a song about this modern Juliette and her Romeo. I always had a thing about this Shakespeare classic, the original movie and also the 90s version. So the song is about a wild 2020 Juliet. The things that she likes, the songs that she listens, what she does to her Romeo. I really love how song writing can take you anywhere and you can even recreate any story or characters. Love this!!

Num sábado à noite em um mundo pré-pandemia eu estava tocando num pub de Vancouver com a minha banda @rockpapertexas quando vi uma menina com dreadlocks e uma parte da cabeça raspada, bem estilosa. Então tive a ideia de escrever sobre uma Julieta moderna e seu Romeu. Eu sempre gostei muito desse clássico do Shakespeare, assim como o filme original e a versão dos anos 90. Essa música é sobre a Juliette do ano de 2020. As coisas que ela gosta, as músicas que ela escuta, o que ela faz com seu Romeu. É incrível como quando você cria uma música você pode fazer o que quiser, até mesmo recriar a história e a personalidade de um personagem tão famoso como ela. Amooo!

Lyrics

She asked me to deep my soul in her sex
I bed that she learned from her friends in New West
She ask and I go. And when I come inside
She’s taking a bath on strawberry wine

Sublime in her ears and blues in her heart
Colourful tears and a beautiful smile

“The road not taken” she said,
“No harm to try. Just be who you are baby! You know who you are.”

Seams to me that I’ll be in love before a leave here
Oh no! I can feel it coming

Juliet, Dreadlocks and shaved hair
You’re free. Is beautiful to see it
Juliet, oh. Seams to me that you don’t even care
You’re free. You are free.
