Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Hush now, Calliope (Broken promises and lying lies ring true)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 248 : "Odd Times And No Rhymes VI"

Lyrics:

Wainwright:
With two seasons of dust behind them
Calliope and Vareem reach an impasse
What little trust they shared has run dry
So, one more time, Vareem spins his wicked web

Vareem:
Bad boys, bad boys surround
But don’t worry, their path’s unclear
Keep your head down, girl
And close your pretty mouth

Calliope:
How do I fight
With his eyes around my throat?
Will I be just a number?
Presented, only now
A cold shoulder to my cries
If so, which number will I be?

Vareem:
Seven!
Seven!
Seven!
Seven!

Vareem:
Bad boys, bad boys creep close
But don’t listen – your thoughts are mine
Keep your mind shut, girl
And choose Vareem – always

Wainwright:
Though, as she concedes a wind takes hold
And thus, his desires are carried into the night

Calliope:
How could I ever know a peace like this?
Did I deserve a second chance?
I’ll shed this skin and rise once more
With no number to my name
Except
For One

Calliope:
Where should I run
Now his eyes blink no more?
Will he be just a number?
Relented, only then
A faint echo in my Glowing mind
If so, which number will he be?

Vareem:
Never!
Never!
Never!
Never?

Vareem:
Bad girls, bad girls take note
You didn’t listen – now your life is mine
Keep running, girl
And now the end begins
[Exit]
