Ben Sollee - The Globe Lyrics

I guess they never told you how the Globe burned down,
But it ain’t no secret, just ask around!

Some heart-sick man fed up with his fate
Torched it to the ground in a desperate state
He’d grown tired of the tragedies
Tired of the death
Tired of watching Romeo take
One last breath

For something as crazy as love!

The gave him all the books, but never taught him to read,
So when she first kissed him, I heard him beg and plead
He saw the storm on the water, he felt every swell
He was on top of a mountain then in the belly of a whale!

¬ĎCause some days it¬ís a fountain
Or an artesian well,
Sometimes it’s a bag of bricks
Or some kind of spell.

There’s nothing as wild as love!

He wasn’t much for religion, but he learned to pray
For occasions when the wine led his mind astray
He built a chapel for his conscience, a shack for his regrets
Sent desire to an island still he could not forget

The sound of her touch
The color of her song
A jumble of words
Where a space belongs

For something as simple as love!
