lyrics

A dark star over the horizon
I’ve got a lot on my mind
The king wants a new storyteller
To keep him busy in the sleepless night

In walks a rare thing of beauty
Her hips sway in the light of the moon
Her neck under Damocles’ sword, but there’s
Still magic in the room

Old dreams escape me
I got no sleep on my mind
Tell me a story, tell me a story
Stay here tonight
You’re such a sweet sight
For these old, weary eyes
Tell me a story, tell me a story
Save me tonight

Her tale starts but I can’t hear nothing
Her voice flows like honey through sand
I don’t care bout genies and thieves
She’s gotta live but they won’t understand

They call me cruel, the blood red sultan
They say I slayed half my family for fun
I got a name, a name to live up to
I gotta save her ‘fore the night is done

Old dreams escape me
I got no sleep on my mind
Tell me a story, tell me a story
Stay here tonight
You’re such a sweet sight
For these old, weary eyes
Tell me a story, tell me a story
Save me tonight

Cold silence in the room she
Waits for what verdict may come
I say “your tale is far from over
I’ll see you every night until the story’s done”

Tell me, tell me a story
