Boy Romeo Chicago, Illinois

Hi! I’m Boy Romeo and welcome to my page. My real name is John, and I write, record, and perform my own brand of pop music with the help of a revolving cast of close friends and collaborators. I self-released the Boy Romeo LP in 2017, produced by Dylan Wall, and released the “Shorts” EP in 2018 with Mt. St. Mtn. I’ll be dropping a second LP in early 2020 with Z Tapes. ... more

Track Name: Star King
(Chorus)
Going up to see the star king

Everybody loves the way he talks
We love his perfect smile
His eyes twinkle with a special spark
It makes us go so wild

(Chorus)

Everybody loves the way he looks
We love that crazy style
It's never too much, just enough
He always hits the mark

(Instrumental)

Everybody wishes they could know
Just what he's really like
He doesn't meet with just anyone
But for us he'll make the time

(Chorus)
Track Name: Don't Call Me Girl
My heart has been a mess
Since you gave up your dress
It's hard to picture you
With online combat boots
I remember the day
That you started to say

(Chorus)
Don't call me girl
I’m not inanimate, I’m not a picture on the wall
Don’t call me girl
I’m not a memory that you can pull up when you want

And I’m not here for your amusement
So you can wipe that grin off your face
Don’t call me girl
Sir ma’am or her

We used to get along
No problems, nothing wrong
I cannot understand
Just why you get so mad

And the words that you said
On repeat in my head

(Chorus)
Don’t call me girl
I’m not a product that you can pick right off the shelf
Don’t call me girl
I’m not a melody that you can whistle to yourself

And I’m not here for your amusement
So you can wipe that grin off your face
Don’t call me girl
Sir ma’am or her

I told you, “girl, you’re making a mistake”
You turned around, said “I can’t live this way
You’re driving me wild, I cannot relate
And don’t call me girl”
Track Name: Public
(Verse)

Maybe with your eyes to the ground
You won't have to notice the sound
This could be the night of our lives
But I feel my soul crumble inside

Maybe it's nerves
Maybe we're just wired

(Chorus)

It's been a long day
Let's get away for awhile
You me and the public all night

In every corner
With every step of the mile
You me and the public all night

(Verse)

Maybe with your eyes to the ground
You won't have to notice the sound
Blinding lights on every block
Hidden cameras in the dark

Panting and frantic
Your wide open eyes

(Chorus)

It's never felt so good
Jacked up and alive
You me and the public all night

In every corner
With every step of the mile
You me and the public
We'll have a great time
Track Name: Lullaby
Hold me in your arms
And I'll stay there for the night
Let me in your thoughts
Show me your sweet paradise

Whisper in my ear
Tell me it's alright
Sing to me a sweet lullaby

Heaven is the bed
On which we lie for the night
Look me in the eyes
Like an angel from the sky

Whisper in my ear
Won't you make my night
Sing to me a sweet lullaby

Feelings of shame for awhile
Feelings of love never die
Track Name: Savoir Sun
Under the savoir sun
We lay on a bed of moss
We watched the ground open
And out shot a stream of fire

Show me your world
Let me see your paradise

Under the savoir sun
We talked and wondered why
We watched the streets erupt
And laughed as we came undone

We don't need the world
We can live in paradise

Under the savoir sun
We found our peace of mind
Track Name: Yr Town
My memory is fading out
Between the walls of your town
I'm chasing a little dream
Faint picture running away from me

Grey clouds and a little sun
Bluejays in flight up above
The air was sweet
At least that's what I think

Reality is such a fickle thing
We're wandering through life like it's a dream

My memory is fading out
Behind the walls of your town
I'm chasing a little dream
Faint picture running away from me

Nighttime, downtown
Bright lights and all the crazy sounds
Beautiful thing
That's what you were to me

Reality is such a fickle thing
We're wandering through life like it's a dream
