It's my Life
Juliette Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't know where to begin
But this is how it started
When I told him that we should take it slow
Now I don't know where he's gone
I understand the fact he left me
But I just can't stand to be here alone, oh no

So here I am
I'm telling me you I will look forever
I hope you understand
‘Cause this is what I wanna say

Oh, I want you back into my life, yeah, yeah
Every step that you take, every move that you make
I'll be like a shadow over you
I want you back into my life, yeah, oh
Everything that you say
‘Cause babe, I know my love for you is here to stay
Yeah, it's here to stay

This is not the way I planned
But I know that if you let me
I would apologize the way that I've been, oh yeah
I just felt we moved too fast
But now I need to have you near me
I never meant to hurt you, my love

I know it's all my fault
‘Cause now when I've lost you you're all I think of
I'm all alone
But I don't wanna be, so this is what I wanna say

Oh, I want you back…

This is not the way I expect it
If it's only me I accept it
This it not the way I want it to be
Oh no, oh yeah





Oh, I want you back…

This entrance is fire, the audience went nuts when this song started! Congrats to this talented cast!

@jocelynhannusch2996

I saw the show in Toronto and my god did this song get roaring applause when it started. I went to see the show the second time I went to see it with someone who had never seen a Broadway show before and she said she had never seen anything as amazing as this song.

@ann-mariemallinson4803

Seen it 3 times in London, the first being with the OG Romeo and honestly it slaps every single damn time. I’d give a limb to see it on Broadway!

@musicmakesmehappy2

@hayal8526

@jackw5105

When I first watched this number I had forgotten that Romeo could even be in this show, and the way he was presented had me squealing

@pinglee2001

I laughed so hard when I saw romeo come down like a rock star
