The Mellowship You Belong With Me... track list

Marriage Bands

 

This song was written a long time ago when I lived a very different life, as an office worker by day and a biker at night. This made think about all the times in history that women have lived lives not of their choosing. And my job was really boring giving ample opportunity for my creative brain to distract itself.

 

My hearts not in this work I do

For I’m a warrior through and through

But I'll take this needle and sew for you

The marriage bands of red and blue

 

I was free as a hawk and pure are a dove

Until I saw you there my love

My father said we were to wed

Deep in my heart I wished you dead

 

My hearts not in this work I do

For I’m a warrior through and through

But I'll take this needle and sew for you

The marriage bands of red and blue

 

Now my freedoms gone and my purifies fled

And all for one night in your bed

Without love you took my maidenhead

And now I'm your alone

 

My hearts not in this work I do

For I’m a warrior through and through

But I'll take this needle and sew for you

The marriage bands of red and blue

 

Now I'm chained and held to your side

A warrior wife a warrior bride

Spring has gone and Summer's fled

And now I'm in my child birth bed

 

My hearts not in this work I do

For I’m a warrior through and through

But I'll take this needle and sew for you

The marriage bands of red and blue

 

Lukas makes loveliness

 

Now my daughters grown up at my side

A warriors heart a warriors pride

But now it's time for her to wed

Led away caged and dead

 

My hearts not in this work I do

For I’m a warrior through and through

But I'll take this needle and sew for you

The marriage bands of red and blue

 

My hearts not in this work I do

For I’m a warrior through and through

But I'll take this needle and sew for you

The marriage bands of red and blue
