Song for Jehane

This song was created for Game of Bands round 57 : "Medieval!"

Lyrics:

Far away at the top of a hill
Two armored men side by side
In the evening gloom she can?t tell them apart
Just silhouettes against the sky

Friends and foes and she?d loved them both
Champions each for their side

Swords in hand in a fight for their lands
To end when one of them dies
Who knows love, who says he knows love?
An old childhood song she recalls
To her lament it?s not love in the end
But ambitions of kings conquer all

Far away now from kings and their games
But memory still leaves its old scars
Of the evening the clouds came over the hill
No sun, no moon, and no stars

She can?t watch but she can?t look away
Teary eyes trapped on the hill
Gripped with fear, why bother with prayer
When both sides say this is God?s will

The part they all played in this foolish crusade
Too much blood already spilled

In the flurry of blades she watches their shades
And it feels like time?s standing still
Two figures twisting, slash and riposte
One no longer standing so tall

She saw a good man raise his sword to the sky
And she saw a good man fall?

Far away now from kings and their games
But memory still leaves its old scars
Of the evening the clouds came over the hill
No sun, no moon, and no stars

One man stands but neither wins
Just silence as the dusk rolls in
Such are the schemes of gods and man
To leave their footprint in the sand

Far away now from kings and their games
But memory still leaves its old scars
Of the evening the clouds came over the hill
No sun, no moon, and no stars
[Exit]
