I said that I would write you a song You said you would finish at two When I called you had gone but I still wrote the song this one was written for you ... There's a world where thoughts and dreams coexist Where the sky stays a strange magic hue Where life can be simple and death close behind Where music can call to the few I traveled in search of a will of the wisp A memory hidden but true I traveled in vain, for she'd flourished and gone And then in the shade there was you.. I said that I would write you a song You said you would finish at two When I called you had gone but I still wrote the song this one was written for you ... I sang out my songs in the heat of the crowd And I watched you as you glided by The light of the candles brought shadows and shades And a sparkle to a bright blue grey eye I saw tables brighten as you gave them a smile And I hoped you would not pass me by I played out my heart on the fret-board of life Though I feared - to catch your eye I said that I would write you a song You said you would finish at two When I called you had gone but I still wrote the song this one was written for you ... The warmth of the evening, the heat of the sand, The smell of smoke burning, the touch of a hand, The taste of sweet lips, that sears like a brand A whisper of hope, I could not understand For I was estranged in a stranger land With a prospect of love I could never have planned I said that I would write you a song You said you would finish at two When I called you had gone but I still wrote the song this one was written for you ... I watched from a distance as you passed to and fro As night-time replaced eventide No necklace or garlands upon silky skin Your red hair pulled backwards with pride.. Your voice it was gentle, your smile was beguiling If I say I was untouched I lied I thought that you had not even seen me at all then you came and sat by my side ... And I said that I would write you a song You said you would finish at two When I called you had gone but I still wrote the song this one was written for you ...

Dance for me - and I will play for you Rest with me - and I will sing to you Stay with me - if you are wanting to Whatever else - just dance for me ... Dance for me - I will be watching you Young and free - I will be wanting you Stay with me - till the night is through Whatever else- just dance for me.... Dance for me - move your body slow Close to me - steal a heart and soul Stay with me - till you have to go whatever else - dance for me Dance for me - I'll burn the candles low Move for me - in that warmest glow Come to me - move your body slow Whatever else - dance for me

ET ANGELAN MITRASPERA ET US KIRRSAN YAN LETHE (The Angels of Mythodea are a Curse upon the Land) Heard the call of the Viinshar – lost her to the Void Listen to my story of how I lost my love They said that she was walking, They said that she was fine They say that I won’t see her for a long long time For she has gone from Mythodea ET ANGELAN MITRASPERA ET US KIRRSAN YAN LETHE She’s gone from Mythodea Heard the cry of the Viinshar – lost her to the Void She was a child of Aeris a Messenger of the sky I never told her of my love , I was too shy But then I plucked up courage , I would tell no lie For she has gone from Mythodea ET ANGELAN MITRASPERA ET US KIRRSAN YAN LETHE She’s gone from Mythodea Heard the cry of the Viinshar – lost her to the Void I hate the ones who took her, who stole away my heart I curse all the forsaken, and all their evil arts Now I lift my sword up, now my battle starts Until they’re gone from Mythodea ET ANGELAN MITRASPERA ET US KIRRSAN YAN LETHE Gone from Mythodea Heard the cry of the Viinshar – lost her to the Void Instrumental chorus

Before I got to fighting, or when fighting got to me I looked to find examples on the field of chivalry And I saw mighty arms much stronger than my arms could ever be So I thought perhaps that field was not for me But I stayed to watch the fighting 'til one figure stood apart In armour newly fashioned and a helm more pot than art But each blow was thrown with honour and a lightness of the heart So I took that step which soon became a start Cause she was not the biggest fighter, nor one to raise a fuss But I remember being proud that she was one of us And we might never stand together in a shield-wall side by side Because of her, I lift my sword with pride She was ladylike and lively, not the type you would expect With a braver heart than many and a slot-shot to respect And I guess she'd once decided this was where she'd like to be And I thought, if she could do it, why not me? Cause she was not the biggest fighter, nor one to raise a fuss But I remember being proud that she was one of us And we might never stand together in a shield-wall side by side Because of her, I lift my sword with pride So now as I gather armour, bits and pieces here and there I think about examples, how you act and what you dare 'Cause you never know who's watching, or how far that story goes Where'er that lady is, I hope she knows Cause she was not the biggest fighter, nor one to raise a fuss But I remember being proud that she was one of us And we might never stand together in a shield-wall side by side Because of her, I lift my sword with pride No, we might never stand together in a shield-wall side by side Because of her, I lift my sword with pride

She stood in the finest weave of the tapestry Sewing those dreams that only blind poets see Lost in the dust of last winter’s forestry Tempting, teasing, tortuous destinies... The Stitches of time were unraveling slowly The weft of her tears told a sorrowful story She hung from the loom with silent anxiety "Fatal" she said .. tastes of Strawberry... "Revenge" she whispered always tastes Bitter Sweet Clean is the freshness of a realised destiny Lips are cold - hearts won't beat Fatal tastes of Strawberry There 'twixt the branches of leafy divinity Long golden tresses give hope for futurity Woven through time with truth and duplicity Drifting like wood smoke into sweet obscurity Red was her bosom and armoured with dignity, Bright were her eyes with hidden expectancy Sad was her smile, with a lack of security Within my heart - I heard her call out to me ... Chor Deep was my hunger as she reached out for me Wide were my arms to grasp a pure destiny High my ambitions too high now it seems to me as further she drifted, drifted away from me Hidden in the finest weave of the tapestry Lost in my dreams that only blind poets see A soft echo drifted from last winter's forestry "Fatal" it whispered .. "tastes of Strawberry...“ "Regret" I now know will always taste Bitter Sweet I’ll never savour a realised destiny Lips are cold - hearts won't beat Fatal tastes of Strawberry

When its winter in Wales there’s a chill in the air I recall the glint of the sun in her hair She had a knowing smile and eyes that beguile On the steps of the Jolly Rouge.. On the steps, on the steps, on the steps of the Jolly Rouge A knowing smile and eyes that beguile On the steps of the Jolly Rouge. The sand it was burning the souls of my feet But my heart it was burning to a different heat She gave me a glance, as I asked her to dance In the shade of the Jolly Rouge In the shade, In the shade, In the shade of the Jolly Rouge She gave me a glance, as I asked her to dance In the shade of the Jolly Rouge So when its winter in Wales with a chill in the air Out in Mythodea - my heart it is there There are lanterns of paper, and candles and tapers My heart’s in the Jolly Rouge My heart,my heart, my heart's in the Jolly Rouge By lanterns of paper, and candles and tapers My heart’s in the Jolly Rouge I sang her a song and she smiled once again My heart just wanted to take all her pain It can’t be for me, but she’ll always will be Mona Mour of the Jolly Rouge Mona Mour, Mona Mour, Mona Mour of the Jolly Rouge Too young for me , but she’ll always will be Mon amour of the Jolly Rouge

Counting them out - Counting them in You know where they are - you know where they've been But it's a shame - really a sin If you don't count them out - you can't count them in Before the battle - as you step on the field Your blood it is racing - no quarter no yield Surrounded by comrades - each axe, sword or shield You know some will fall - they'll die if not healed.. So I'm counting them out.... Out in the darkness, you know you must go You may take it careful - you may take it slow You may charge in fearless, the red mist aglow You may tread in silence - with nary a blow... But I'm counting.. She stood at the window There were Shadows within The flicker of firelight Tattooing her skin So Still and so Silent Her gaze far away If I close my eyes tightly I can see her today... Love is a battle - you know you must go You may take it careful - you may take it slow You may charge in fearless, the red mist a-glow You may tread in silence - with nary a blow... She sat at the table Her head in her hands Her gaze it was distant Far places far lands But her smile it was gentle She saw through it all A band of bright scarlet O'er her eyes pierced my soul But I'm counting.. She walked like a dancer She stood like a Queen With Fur at her shoulders So lithe and so lean Stark Elven features A haughty disdain Brings me back to the Crabbe Again and again..

I'll tell you how I lost my voice at the Black Pearl Mythodea!! There's a tavern in the town - bane to the Bards - it gets them down There the crowds all drink and shout - It's the Black Pearl Mythodea! Bards all try to sing it right, a ballad while the punters fight They strive to get their voices heard, but they don't get a chance sir!! But I've a plan, a sneaky one, A plan that's quite supreme sir A Bardic plan with Bardic fun, when things are quite quite extreme sir If they won't listen and they don't want to hear.. So I wrote them a chorus about Beer!! I'll tell you how I lost my voice (1,2,3,4) At the Black Pearl Mythodea!! What do you want - I'll Have a beer!! - I'll have a beer with you sir ..... And that was how I lost my Voice at the Black Pearl Mythodea!! There's a gambler in the bar, he's fine with cards - and quite a star With skill he'll play all night and day - in the Black Pearl Mythodea! I took a table - took some cards, thought it couldn't be that hard I played the gambler at his game. I didn't stand a chance sir!! I saw him shuffle, deal his cards, he went through his paces I got a mighty hand of Kings - He had all the Aces!! He took my shirt from me have no fear But he couldn't take my chorus about the beer I lost my Shirt when I lost my voice - At the Black Pearl Mythodea!! There's a wench who serves me beer, cool and chilled, but have no fear When she smiles I'd walk for miles to the Black Pearl Mythodea!! Then my heart began to stir- she said her name was Sinistair! Long blonde hair and darkened eyes - I didn't stand a chance sir !!! When I asked to taste her wares she didn't tell me no sir She didn't tell me yes sir, she said she was too young sir!! Said she knew about old Bards like me So I gave her a song and drank my beer.. I lost my heart when I lost my voice - At the Black Pearl Mythodea!! So there's a tavern in the town - and there we drink - we put them down There the crowds all drink all night - at the Black Pearl Mythodea! Bards all try to sing it right, a ballad while the punters fight Strive to get our voices heard, but we don't have a chance sir!! But While I've copper in my pouch I'll buy just one more beer sir I'll sing my songs to those by me - cos they're the only ones can hear sir No !! I don't care if the rest don't want to hear.. I'll spend another copper .. drink my Beer Cos I lost my Wallet when I lost my voice - At the Black Pearl Mythodea!! I Lost my Wallet, Shirt, Heart and Voice... In the Black Pearl Mythodea

about

Conquest of Mythodea - the largest Live Action Role Play (LARP) system in Europe - or probably the World.
Vollsanger the Skald - a Viking Bard - tells of 8 young ladies that he met, fell hopelessly in love with, and failed to make any impression upon ...
But he wrote songs about them and the Taverns with which they were associated - Love Chronicles of Mythodea.

These are true stories....
