Pirate's Dirge (Oh oh oh)

by Ro Halfhide



It's a folky tune, but I produced it with a modern electronic sound. The song speaks of Love's distraction, away from a destructive path the protagonist has chosen.


Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Stop me now, stop me from falling
Down the shallow path of being brave
Or I will be forever calling
From that oh so lonesome grave

Enlist me to gather roses
And I know I won't be saved
When you'll hear of my overdoses
That's when you know, that I have caved

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I bid you, to reconsider
All the love that you have been displayed
If you don't believe, then come hither
To where I first have strayed

In this place where we're together
In this place where love is born
I'll be loving you forever
In this place where I am torn
