about

(Roi)
one of the first tunes i ever wrote-

lyrics

Sweet Maria she was a teacher
had her fathers eyes
she stood there waiting her soul for taking
and mirrors were her eyes
all alone she waited for him
to come rescue her
so she could save him
she heard a horse out in the field
and watched him drawing near
and as she watched him get closer
the figure of him cleared
all alone she waited for him
to come rescue her
so she could save him
she left today
she couldn't stay
he took her away
he left today
goodbye Sweet Maria
his name was pelo
he dressed in yellow
and his duty was supreme
he said i'll take you to my house
where many wonders lay
that are never seen
and she knew when her hand
touched his wing
he had come to take her home
to sweeter things
she left today
she couldn't stay
he took her away
he left today
goodbye Sweet Maria
