SECRET SONG!

 

You have found a secret, hidden page on my website!

 

This song was written by Scott Waisner and me.  The idea was to do a medieval bard song in a modern style.  I wrote and performed the music, Scott wrote the lyrics, and Daniel Marshall sang it!

One Torch

by Chris Merritt and Scott Waisner

sang by Daniel Marshall

------------------------------------------------

 

Many years I've wandered,

Through mountains, moors and plains,

Seeing countless faces,

But none that stayed the same,

 

Night has come,

Cold sets in,

Desperate,

I try again,

I cry out,

As I roam,

Hear me now,

Lead me home,

 

The road was marked so clearly,

But now I've lost my way,

You said you'd never leave me,

It must be me who's strayed,

 

Trudging on,

Through the night,

Searching for,

Just one light,

One more step,

One more cry,

You're not there,

I don't know why,

 

I knew what was right,

I knew what was wrong for me,

For now the lines have crossed,

 

Give me just one torch,

To light my way,

 

For I fear my map is lost,

 

The forest path is tattered,

And vines cling to my feet,

My warrior's heart is broken,

But I will not claim defeat,

 

Sun shines bright,

In my mind,

Flowered fields,

I hope to find,

Seeking still,

As I roam,

Just one light,

To lead me home,

 

I knew what was right,

I knew what was wrong for me,

But now the lines have crossed,

 

Give me just one torch,

To light my way,

 

For now I fear my map is lost,

 

Night has come,

Cold sets in,

Desperate,

I try again,

Fall once more,

On bended knee,

Just one spark,

I start to see,

 

I know what is right,

I know what is wrong for me,

For now the lines are crossed,

 

But give me just one torch,

 

To light my way.
