Love Theme From Romeo and Juliet


Forty years ago, this instrumental love song was on the top of the charts. It ranked #6 for the entire year of 1969. "A Time for Us", is from the soundtrack of the 1968 movie "Romeo and Juliet" by Franco Zeffirelli. I believe this was the most passionate and heart-wrenching movie ever made, and the musical score just intensified the story of young love denied. The soundtrack was composed by Henry Mancini, who had many other hits during the Sixties, but none will ever compare to this masterpiece.



This song, with the lyrics, was also recorded by many popular artists of the times, including Andy Williams and Johnny Mathis.




"A time for us some day there'll be
When chains are torn by courage born of a love that's free
A time when dreams so long denied
Can flourish as we unveil the love we now must hide

A time for us at last to see
A life worthwhile for you and me

And with our love through tears and thorns
We will endure as we pass surely through every storm
A time for us some day there'll be a new world
A world of shining hope for you and me

For you and me

And with our love through tears and thorns
We will endure as we pass surely through every storm
A time for us some day there'll be a new world
A world of shining hope for you and me

A world of shining hope for you and me"
