‘After The Storm’ by Zoolon or, better put; ‘The wild and windy night, That the rain washed away, Has left a pool of tears, Crying for the day’ – Paul McCartney from the song ‘Long & Winding Road’
I’ve been reading Arthurian tales from various sources. I got hooked. Thought I’d write some words about them. ‘The Lady of The Lake’ legend for some reason fascinated me the most. For one thing she has so many variations to her forename mainly beginning with ‘N’ – none of which I can pronounce – but more than that is that she has a mystical rather than a magical feel, more so than the other characters.
I’ll play around with the words I wrote as I think when edited to fit a melody I might have a new song in the making. Anyway, first of all here’s my song ‘Pride & Time’ that pretty much fits the darkish mood of ‘The Lady of The Lakes’ words. The actual words follow on behind. I hope you enjoy;
Sincerity counts for nothing to The Lady of The Lake
She’s forgotten all her secrets; all her vows
She paints pictures, speaks in riddles I can’t work out
Smiles, claps her hands and takes the bows
They called you an ‘enchantress’ in the legend
You said you were good with that and the fancy gig you got
Now you live in dread of tidal waves and suffocating
I’m thinking you got sick and tired and lost the plot
What about that sword you gave big man?
The death wish King; the one who time forgot
Did you ever regret you got mixed up in the trials and tribulations
Of a castle in the air called Camelot?
Somewhere I read you ‘transcended notoriety’
And that you once knew the ‘misty path to Avalon’
I heard you want to vacate your crystal cave apartment
Go abroad and soak up the rays in Babylon?
Falling stars and magic moments lost for ever
Now that the unicorns and dragons are no more
They’re all buried in an unnamed grave in a concrete wonderland
You’ve no idea you hold the keys to the unlocked door
Are you still regretting drowning in love’s sorrow?
Don’t you miss the limelight, the romance and the fame?
Wishing you could turn back time doesn’t help none
For the record you should know I feel the same
