I watched the 1968 movie adaptation of Romeo and Juliet and heard this song in 9th grade. Ever since then I have gotten chills down my spine whenever this song came up (and it doesn’t help that it’s on a violin). One reason why I love this song so much is because it makes me think about love.
The rush that you get from the chase, and the moments that make your heart skip a couple beats.
Whenever I hear this song I think now about the romantic moments we’ve had.
Like the time I stayed at the library all night with you, even though it wasn’t my priority to study: it was to hang out with you
Or the time it snowed one night when we were walking back to our dorms at 2 in the morning
Or the time we hung around Kenan Stadium, where it was slightly chilly that night and it was just you and me, sitting on the stands, looking down on the field as I was holding you so close to me.
Or the countless times we’ve watched movies and just cuddled afterwards.
I love this song because it reminds me of those times and I’m totally ready to have more memories like that.
