Wherefore Art Thou Romeo?

I want to brave love, one that makes me weak in the knees
I want a crazy, crazy love
One that makes me come undone at the seams'
Cause I'm tired of all these pilgrims, these puritans, these thieves
Of all these unbelieverswho whittle love down at the knees
Let these swift roads destroy themselves
Let the world fall into its sleep
For we shall be left standing
To face what's left of concrete and honey

Kiss the flame
Let's run with the hunted, the untamed
Kiss the flame
Embrace the faceless, the unnamed
Kiss the flame

There are nightmares on the sidewalks
There are jokes on TV
There are people selling thoughtlessness with such casualty
But wherefore art thou Romeo where have all the brave men gone
Show me one man who know his own heart
To him I shall belong

Kiss the flame

The clever 'Kiwi living in France', aka Mary from l'antipodeuse asked me why I called my blog Concrete & Honey, this was my answer: There are 2 reasons: 1) "inspiration is everywhere" was taken; and 2) they are my favourite lyrics from a Jewel song 'Kiss the Flame'. But it's kind of meant to reflect the inspiration I get from living inner city.
