Song Lyric Sunday – Check Yes Juliet by We The Kings

This is yet another band that my daughter introduced me to and I ended up falling in love with. I haven’t followed them much recently, but their first two or three albums were some of my favorites. I’ve seen them perform live on a few occasions, one such night being one of my favorite concerts. I lost my voice and everything!

This song doesn’t have the word “game” in it, but it is about a game, so I figured it fit the theme well enough. I don’t necessarily consider myself old, but when you think about how far technology has come and how fast it happened, I suppose that pretty much ages me. We used to write hand-written notes to each other in elementary and junior high school, and one such note would be a simple little question from a boy to a girl or vice-versa. I also used it for my girlfriends when we were fighting and I was trying to make up with them. “Do you like me?” It would include two answers with little check boxes next to them – “Yes or No”.

While it seemed like a life or death situation back then, it was really just a fun game and I love the reference in this song. I, for one, thought of running away many times when I was younger. Not only that, if Travis Clark was throwing rocks at my window, I would run out of that house so fast, no one could catch me.

I hope you enjoy!

Check yes Juliet
Are you with me?
Rain is falling down on the sidewalk
I won’t go until you come outside
Check yes Juliet
Kill the limbo
I’ll keep tossing rocks at your window
There’s no turning back for us tonight
Lace up your shoes
Eh oh eh oh
Here’s how we do
Run, baby, run
Don’t ever look back
They’ll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don’t sell your heart
Don’t say we’re not meant to be
Run, baby, run
Forever we’ll be
You and me
Check yes Juliet
I’ll be waiting
Wishing, wanting
Yours for the taking
Just sneak out
And don’t tell a soul goodbye
Check yes Juliet
Here’s the countdown
Three, two, one, now fall in my arms
Now they can change the locks
Don’t let them change your mind
Lace up your shoes
Eh oh eh oh
Here’s how we do
Run, baby, run
Don’t ever look back
They’ll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don’t sell your heart
Don’t say we’re not meant to be
Run, baby, run
Forever we’ll be
You and me
We’re flying through the night
We’re flying through the night
Way up high,
The view from here is getting better with
You by my side
Run, baby, run
Don’t ever look back
They’ll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don’t sell your heart
Don’t say we’re not meant to be
Run, baby, run
Forever we’ll be
You and me
Run, baby, run
Don’t ever look back.
They’ll tear us apart
If you give them the chance.
Don’t sell your heart.
Don’t say we’re not meant to be.
Run, baby, run.
Forever we’ll be
You and me.
You and me
You and me
