I believe it is called "A Time for Us", (or A Place for us). I could hum the tune for you, but humming doesn't come through answers.com . I also think the writers were Fera…nte and Ticher (but don't quote me on it; these will only give you a basis to continue your.research).
the theme song is a time for us lyrics:. a time for us some day there will be a new world a world of shining hope for you and me!!!!for you and me for you and me !!!!!...
Too many ! there are too many songs dealing with so-called Suicide pacts among (young lovers) I"ll name a few: Running Bear ( not about nudism), Love me Forever, a classic son…g but implied mutual death theme, there are others as for suicide and suicide attempts- Reflections of My Life takes the (Poisoned) cake. this is simply not a healthy topic for youth- along with related songs dealing with various types of fatal automobile and other accidents. really they should not have songs along these lines on the airwaves.
Love, hate and fate are the three main themes in Romeo and Juliet.
Love, wouldn't you say?
I would say darkness is most fitting for that play. Just, the desparity of the two lovers, and then the ending. Maybe, fading light, yes.. \nI don't think so, that is if yo…u are talking about light literally (sun LIGHT etc)\ngo on google and look up some R+J themes :)

ligt and dark as well as parent and child relationships Parents and children and the struggle of young people to make their own choices in the face of parents' vested inter…ests. Some related scenes: The Prologue: the Chorus describes the parents' 'ancient grudge' which is the catalyst for the death of their children. Act 1, Scene 1: Lord Capulet approves Paris's request to ask Juliet to marry him. Act 3, Scene 5: Lord and Lady Capulet tell Juliet of their arrangements for her to marry Paris. Act 5, Scene 3: Romeo and Juliet commit suicide; the parents are faced with the consequences of their ancient feud. Light and Darkness One of the most often repeated image patterns in the play involves the interplay of light and darkness. The integration of the language indicates an important motif overall. Romeo compares Juliet to light throughout the play. Upon first sight of her, Romeo exclaims that she teaches "the torches to burn bright" (I.v.43). She is also "the sun" who can "kill the envious moon" (II.ii.3), and later in this scene, Shakespeare says that her eyes are like "two of the fairest stars in all the heaven" (II.ii.15). But hers is a light that shows best against the darkness; she "hangs upon the cheek of night / As a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear" (I.v.44-45). Romeo is also compared with a light that illuminates the darkness; if Juliet dies, she wants Romeo cut "in little stars/And he will make the face of heaven so fine/That all the world will be in love with night/? And pay no worship to the garish sun" (III.ii.22-25). This quote reminds us that their light shines most brightly in the dark - that it is a muted glow associated primarily with stars, torches, and the dawn, rather than with sunlight, which is almost obscenely bright. Like their love, darkness is associated with mystery, emotion, and imagination. In fact, the day works against them. At the end of their honeymoon night, Romeo says, "More light and light: more dark and dark our woes" (III.v.36); they must part before the light arrived so that he is not caught and killed.
