Hey, Linne!  Thanks for sharing your song with us.  I dig the vibe and the idea.  It feels honest and emotional.  I dig it.  I don’t mind the “death” in the chorus.  It’s not morbid, but it’s on-theme.  Fits well.

Overall, I dig it! Pretty.  Keep writing!

Hi there Linne! Brent made a good choice in spotlighting this song. It’s beautiful both vocally and lyrically. I would not change anything about it. Great job!

Great song Linne! Very beautifully written.
I personally hear this as a song for either The Shires or Carrie Underwood (e.g. like Wine After Whiskey or Good In Goodbye) if you’re going for the country-pop vibe!

Really like this song! I don’t think the D word is off putting, it’s in context. I’m newer to the country genre but this song made me think of some of Dolly Parton’s - a strong image clearly and beautifully told.

I like the vocal register transitions. They make the song very listenable and interesting. The word death in the chorus does not hit me in the wrong way at all.
If you are looking for areas where I think you could strengthen the lyric…
The line “a trust I’ve never felt” is difficult to connect with. I can see where you are going with the line but it doesn’t feel like something you would actually say, at least not in that way, if you were telling your story to a friend. You might say I’ve never felt trust and I want to, but I don’t think you would say it this way. I think that is why it doesn’t resonate.
If you replaced it with a line like “A love that I won’t regret” it would be cliche but it would be more conversationally natural.
Great song wither way. Love your writing style!

Linne Black and Bev Hingson

Waking up from a dream
Something in a Shakespeare scene
A boy and girl who loved more than anything
More than anything
Then reality sets in
Here I am with a broken heart again
I know what I need, I know what I need

chorus
I wanna be loved like Juliet
More than a touch, more than a crush
A trust I've never felt
I want a love thats stronger
Lasts longer then death
I wanna be loved, I wanna be loved
Like Juliet

Can it be too much to ask
To find a love like that
Where eternity begins right from the start
Right from the start
But I'm not gonna rush this thing
My true love will find his way to me
I'll know him by heart, I'll know him by heart

ch
Then I'll be loved like Juliet
More than a touch, more than a crush
A trust I've never felt
I'll have a love that's stronger
Lasts longer than death
I wanna be loved, I wanna be loved

bridge
I may not know where my forever is
At this moment all I know is this

I want a love that's stronger
Lasts longer than death
I wanna be loved, I wanna be loved
I wanna be loved, I wanna be loved
Like Juliet
