Opium Tales Volume I

Princess for the Night

This little town
They keep their heads down
They’re working hard every day
The beast needs to feed
To keep it at ease
A small price to pay

This little town
There are no heroes
Just everyday women and men
When the time comes
There are no champions
Nobody here can defend

Oh, please don’t cry
Pretty baby
Some day a hero
Will make it right

Everything is for you baby
You’re the Princess for the Night
You choose the wine
We’ll make you a shrine
Tonight is your night

Every Autumn
Before the harvest
We gather for the Lottery
Virgins apply
We lose just one life
One night debauchery

Oh, please don’t cry
Pretty baby
Some day a hero
Will make it right

Everything is for you baby
You’re the Princess for the Night
You choose the wine
We’ll make you a shrine
Tonight is your night

Lizzie’s Opium Waltz

(orchestral instrumental)

I’m in Love

With a broken heart
So slow to start
You’ve changed so much in me
I feel alive
And flying high
It’s like you set me free

This world’s gone cold
They’re lonely and old
But you make me feel so alive
I’ll take on the world
The happiest girl
Our love will never die

I’m in love
love
love
With you baby
I’m in love
love
love
With you baby
So crazy

You’ll take us far
We’ll race for the stars
We’ll sail off the edge of the world
You’ll make it alright
We’ll live for the nights
I’m such a lucky girl

I’m in love
love
love
With you baby
I’m in love
love
love
With you baby
So crazy

It’s you and me against the world
Forever you’re only girl
And I’ll always be there for you

Make Me a New Heart

(orchestral instrumental)

One More Serenade

Two young kids on a Summer night
Singing songs together
Watching the sun crashing down
Wishing it will last forever
He falls to his knee and takes out a ring
Telling her she’s everything
Tears fall as she accepts
True love, as good as it gets

I’ll sing you one more serenade
For tomorrow I join my brigade
I’ve never known a love so true
When I return I will marry you

There was a knock on the door
An officer with eyes of war
Stood there tall and proud
Took out a letter and read it aloud
“He fought hard, he gave them hell
But the battle didn’t go so well
We lost over a thousand men
You lost your lover, I lost my friend”

I’ll sing you one more serenade
For tomorrow I join my brigade
I’ve never known a love so true
When I return I will marry you
