FALL

My name is Florrow
I am a Robin Goodfellow,
A sprite living in a forest of England.
I was born just after midnight
Out of nowhere
Going nowhere
On a moody day of autumn.
Puzzled by the cruelty of life
It took years before I discovered
A reason to live.
On a spring evening
My whole world was destroyed.
But a sweet perfume of love
Took my bitterness
Took my emptiness
Off.
I fought the dragon
And saved my friends from oblivion.
This is my story...

OPALINE

Clean sweep of the past which flies up in the air
Leaving only down in the hair
Clean sweep of the future flowing out of my hands
Leaving bitter drops to the palate
Clean sweep of the present which burnt those beloved
Leaving only ashes in the heart.
Here is my sword:
I am tired of fighting the same enemy
every day
Where are the days when I dreamt?
Here is my shield:
I am tired of winning victories lost
every dawn
Where are the days when I loved?
Drowned, drowned in a sea of emotionless waves
I weep, exiled in a black desert
Like a brook in a dry valley
I'm stumbling over the rocks...

Here's my shield
Here's my sword
Here's my life
Here's my world
Here's my love
For you...

Take a piece of  my life
And give it to them
Why am I still alive
And them gone?

THE MORNING DEW

Lying on the grass
Looking at the birds as they pass
The clouds strolling so high
Up in the sky.
The green mountain profiles on the horizon
A boat loitering on the pond.
Suddenly
A primrose blooms in my garden
Clean sweep of my sorrow,
Give it back my sword!
Where are the days when I cried?

J'ai froid en moi
Mais j'ai foi en toi
Your smile twinkling in my darkness.

(c 2000)

 


CASTAWAYS

Gems flying in the sky,
Slipping in my hands,
Crying in the night,
Bursting in my head
Flying in the sky,
Bleeding in my hands,
Crying in the night,
Bursting in my head
 
Then, then I tried to go and find
a way leading to their hearts
Then, then I tried to go and find
a way leading to their hearts
 
I don't want to go away
I'm so young and I am weedy
I don't want to go astray
I'm so young and I am clumsy
I don't want to go away
I'm so young and I am weedy
I don't want to go astray
I'm so young and I am clumsy
 
When, when I looked into your eyes
I could see fire, love and skies
When, when I looked into your eyes
I could see fire, love and skies
 
When, when I looked into your eyes
I could see fire, love and skies
When, when I looked into your eyes
I could see fire, love and skies
 When, when I looked into your eyes
I could see fire, love and skies
When, when I looked into your eyes
I could see fire, love and skies
Looked into your eyes
Looked into your eyes
Looked into your eyes
Looked into your eyes

I won't be afraid by
Chasing doom and chasing gloom
Giving life to full bloom
Chasing doom and chasing gloom
Giving life to full bloom
Chasing doom and chasing gloom
Giving life to lost souls.

THE DESERT GATES
 
Sahara,

You the beautiful one

Like the blue eyed girl.

THE INNER DRAGON

Fight the dragon
Kill the beast
Fight the dragon
Kill the beast
Look at his eyes
He's just like you and me
Fight the dragon
Kill the beast

Fight the dragon
Kill the beast.

A POWERFUL WAND (including YEARS)

Why don't you realise
That youth is in your eyes
Why don't you understand
That's why I take your hand.

(c 2001)

 


LOVESTALGIA

When I am poor, you'll be queen of misery
When I am king, you'll be queen of fantasy
And I do my best to conquer your heart so tenderly
But you are blind to see the tears upon my face
And I do my best to conquer your heart so tenderly
But you are blind to see the tears upon my face.
Why don't you see that I really love you
Why don't you see that I love you
Why don't you see that I really love you
Why don't you see that I love you
And I do my best to conquer your heart so tenderly
But you are blind to see the tears running.
Why, please tell me why, tell me why I love you so, oh tell me why, oh tell me
How, please tell me how, tell me how to enchant your heart, oh tell me how, oh tell me
And I do my best to conquer your heart so tenderly
But you are blind to see the tears running.
Why, please tell me why, tell me why I love you so, oh tell me why, oh tell me
How, please tell me how, tell me how to enchant your heart, oh tell me how, oh tell me
And I do my best to conquer your heart so tenderly
But you are blind to see the tears running.
Tell me why?
Tell me why?

THE FEAST

Florrow!
Master Florrow is back home!
He fought the dragon,
Saved our souls from the despair pit.
Life is back in the village!
Look, primroses bloom in our gardens.
Time for joy!
Time for the feast of friendship!
Broach the casks and roast the lambs
Put your full dresses on
And let the celebration begin!

(c 2003)

 
 


FINALE

Now you all know my story.
Beware of all dragons
Especially the one sleeping in you.
