Pandora's Box

 


WOE, THE LOVER'S TUNE
 
I'll meet you on a mountain top
Or at the bottom of the sea
Said the demon to the angel
Quite convincingly
I fear it won't be long
Till' they discover you and me
The time is nigh for us to disappear
Cut the ties and leave all that is here
 
The angel cried I can't do that
I cannot leave my Lord
To run with you
Though passion strikes
Within me like a sword
My place is here among the light
To serve those who believe
Though you will always hold a piece of me
I would not go our love can never be
 
Woe sang the dark and light
Woe sang the day and night
Woe sang the sun and moon
Woe woe the lover's tune
 
I'll have another lager
Said the bowman at the bar
As the demon pulled another pint
He noticed the long scar
'That's there to remind me
Of her each and every day
If I'd only known a fraction of the truth
When I was struck by love back in my youth'
The bowman mumbled in his drink
His eyes were far away
The demon poured another round
Said 'you don't have to pay
I too have felt the sting my friend
A pain that never ends
You cannot keep the object of your heart
Love is best left ended at the start'
 
Woe, sang the dark and light
Woe sang the day and night
Woe sang the sun and moon
Woe woe the lover's tune
 
In Heaven souls were silver
And the Word was always good
The angels gathered there to give each moment all they could
Not a one felt drawn to desire or despair
Still they easily recognized the strain
On the one who longed for something unattained
Not pure enough for Heaven
Not foul enough for Hell
Two lost soul in limbo
With one more sad tale to tale
It matters not to you tonight
The moon will not fall down
Promises paraded in the heat
Now washed away by cold rain in the street
 
Woe sang the dark and light
Woe sang the day and night
Woe sang the sun and moon
Woe woe the lover's tune
 
No angel holds a demon and survives with pristine wings
No demon rises to the light
Where Heaven's choir sings
Beneath the veils of madness
Surely lies the wisest way
And wisdom always recognizes bliss
And gladly would be traded for one kiss
 
Woe sang the dark and light
Woe sang the day and night
Woe sang the sun and moon
Woe woe the lover's tune
 
Woe sang the dark and light
Woe sang the day and night
Woe sang the sun and moon
Woe woe the lover's tune
