Sitting in her bedroom and she's listening with headphones
To a song that I once sang
I wonder if she's waiting for a song that she could call her own
She wonders what's the delay
And I write, 'cause I owe it to you and I am on your side
You're mine tonight


Heaven sent and so complete
I wonder if she misses me
When I am not around
I'm trying to be quiet
But I want to start a riot in the street
So she'd come down
She doth teach the torches to burn bright
And she gets down, she gets downright
Your cigarettes just got a light
And I know I want burns


Heaven sent and so complete
She dropped my TV in the street
I didn't even care
Little things like attitude
The way that we both hate seafood
I wonder why she's there
But I don't ask, you don't tell
Never really goes this well
Surprised to hear you say
Worried I would go away but
Never ever be afraid 'cause this ones here to stay
This one smokes the competition right
Convinced St. Francis to ignite
Your cigarettes are not alright
And I know I want burns
For the sun to rise It must get dark
I'd never think you'd miss that mark
But if I'm the fire you're the spark
And I know I burn

I Don't Want To Know

    General CommentI love the reference to Romeo and Juliet "She doth teach the torches to burn bright" You know when Romeo first meets Juliet. Does anyone no what "Convinced St. Francis to ignite" means.

    General Commentperhaps the convinced st francis to ignite is this...:

    In 1219 Francis left, together with a few companions, on a pilgrimage of non-violence to Egypt. Crossing the lines between the sultan and the Crusaders in Damietta, he was received by the sultan Melek-el-Kamel. Francis challenged the Muslim scholars to a test of true religion by fire; but they retreated. When Francis proposed to enter the fire first, under the condition that if he left the fire unharmed, the sultan would have to recognize Christ as the true God, the sultan was so impressed that he allowed Francis to preach to his subjects. Though Francis did not succeed in converting the sultan, the last words of the sultan to Francis of Assisi were, according to Jacques de Vitry, bishop of Acre, in his book "Historia occidentalis, De Ordine et praedicatione Fratrum Minorum (1221)" : “Pray for me that God may deign to reveal to me that law and faith which is most pleasing to him.”.[16]
