Woven Stories

This song was created for Game of Bands round 133 : "Lost In Translation"

Lyrics:

So you want to know — where I have been?
Whatever I've heard — and what I have seen?
All that I'll relay — it is truthful indeed
If you want to know — buy me a cup of mead

Gather 'round my bench — I shall speak to you plain
For this story's strange — and I won't sing it again
Gather 'round my bench — you must pay close attention
For this story's strange — and I suck at translation:

I have travelled far and wide
Witnessed things I swear are true
Weaving stories into songs
Shaping them to something new

Sailed for northern shores — it had cost me my shirt
Man against the stream — I had bones in my nose
Wrecked but then salvaged — Housed in a nest of trolls
Midst the butter's eye — wherever the wind blows

I have travelled far and wide
Witnessed things I swear are true
Weaving stories into songs
Shaping them to something new

The trolls bid farewell — with great words of wisdom:
"Don't stand with your beard — within the mailing box"
I wrote it behind — my very own ear
And now there's a stain — on my pillow, I fear

I have travelled far and wide
Witnessed things I swear are true
Weaving stories into songs
Shaping them to something new
[Exit]
