The sixth tune on Kasey Chambers' double album Dragonfly
was inspired by Shakespeare's tragic play, Romeo and Juliet
. Lyrically, the song seems to be written from the perspective of Juliet as evident in the first verse and chorus: When he said my name "Juliet"
And the morning came he tried to forget
That he died in vain for a Capulet
And I walk in a shallow grave
With an iron crow and the holier sin
When the fire smoke and question again
Do you tend to provoke another desperate man
How far will this pilgrim go
Say it isn't so, say it's untrue
Boy, you gotta know that I died for you
Love is gonna hurt, love is gonna bleed
Meet me at the church if you died for me
When we interviewed the Australian
, she revealed what inspired her to write it. "I did a photo shoot in the Sydney State Library for a Tony Mott exhibition and we used the Shakespeare room for some of the photos," Chambers said. "I was so moved by the room so I went back there and spent the day writing the song in there."
