"Julia" lyrics - ROD STEWART


Here's a song I sing for you
About a girl that I once knew, Julia
She lived in a great big house
With golden gates where servants bowed for Julia

Unashamed I'd sit outside and wait for hours
Hoping that she'd climb down from her ivory towers
This beautiful girl as pretty as any flower
Had a hold on me

Upstairs in my lonely room
I would dream of being cool with Julia
I lived in obsessive bliss
Carefully planning my first kiss of Julia

One day I was feeling awfully brave and asked her
If she'd like to come on a date, I just had to
She bent down and gently kissed my face
And said: "Oh, someday"

Oh my god how I loved this girl
But no one ever said that love could burn

Waiting by the phone for days
For a call that never came from Julia
But love is cruel and has no wings
But I still hear angels sing for my Julia

I remember being overwhelmed by her prettiness
If only she would look my way I might be in business
To tell the truth she didn't even know I existed, Julia

Summer took her pretty clothes
Winter came in grey and snow, oh Julia
And I found out she'd moved away
Her best friend said to the north country, Julia

Now all this happened many years ago, my friend
Regrettably there is no happy end, oh no
She was 14, I was only 10, oh my Julia
