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

Nightshade

This song was created for Game of Bands round 252 : "Secret Agent"

Lyrics:

They say your tongue is poison
But it’s sweet upon my lips
They say you can move mountains
By the swaying of your hips

A fragile nation’s rise or fall
Held tender in a slender palm
The calm before a bitter storm
The cold of killing to conform

I’m watching every little move
In this elaborate game we play
No knowing next what turn you’ll choose
To escape the touch of nightshade

Do you keep close to then betray
Return again to walk away
Lead the lost to find what’s missing
Heed the cost of reminiscing

A kiss of shadow and you’re gone
The falling notes of the last song
Back to where you once belonged
A memory made but not for long

I’m watching every little move
In this elaborate game we play
No knowing next what turn you’ll choose
To escape the touch of nightshade

You took what was worth taking
Woke those who needed waking
And now there’s no mistaking
The moves you have been making

I watched your every little move
In that elaborate game we played
It wasn’t me you had to choose
To escape the touch of nightshade

Where we once belonged
[Exit]
