In Romeo's Eyes (Words & Music by Steve Laurie: 3/26/08)

Romeo, oh Romeo, have you heard the news?
Romeo, oh Romeo, the devil's on the loose
And he won't be hiding in the hills tonight
He's down in Kigali, riding on Belgian pride
He's stealing the smiles of a million lives

Romeo, oh Romeo, have you heard the news?
Romeo, oh Romeo, the devil's on the loose
And help won't be coming from the west tonight
And Bill has no interest in your genocide
The caustic division that cost a million lives

Romeo, oh Romeo, could this be a dream?
Romeo, oh Romeo, it's to appalling to believe
And where is Rwanda and who are these men?
And what spurs this hatred and who are these men?
This human perversion; all this human sin

Romeo, oh Romeo, you can sleep tonight
Romeo, oh Romeo, you saved 20,000 lives
But where are the missing? Where is my child?
But where are the fathers? Where is my wife?
They live forever in Romeo's eyes
