The Lady Lies
The man steps out in the moonlight
At the sound of a scream from below
He thinks he is a warrior
So he picks up his sword and goes

From the mouth of the monster
He rescues the maiden fair
But we know she's a demon
Come to lure him to demon's lair

Through restless foliage
And tall trees he leads
To a house in a clearing
A place in her fear she calls home

"Come with me
I need you
I fear the dark
And I live all alone

I'll give you wine
And food too
And something special after
If you like."

And though his body bids him
To enter in with her
There was something in her manner
That his mind could not ignore

Also it is whispered
In the kingdom far and wide
To beware a little cottage
In the forest
In a glade

For who knows what magic
Takes place in his world?
So he just thanks her kindly
Preparing to go on his way

"Come with me
I need you
I fear the dark
And I live all alone

I'll give you wine
And food too
And something special after
If you like

Come to my garden
Taste the fruits
And the spices of love
You can't resist me
I'm the kind
That your dreams tell you of"

"So glad you could make it
We had everything arranged
So glad you saw fit
To pay a call"

Some men never listen
And others never learn
But why this man did as he did
Only he will ever know

He knew he was walking
Into a waiting trap
Neatly set out for him
With a bait so richly wrapped

So he went inside there
To take on what he found
But he never escaped then
For who can escape
What he desires?

"Come with me
I need you
I fear the dark
And I live all alone

I'll give you wine
And food too
And something special after
If you like"
