The Tryst
A story hides behind these walls
Of a sweet forbidden kiss
A secrecy so dangerous
That death can't break the tryst
He came one day to call at court
To sing his minstrel songs
And with each note she fell in love
To him she would belong
Do not enter this special room
For my heart shall break
Do not enter 'tis sacrilege
And it's not yours to take

They met inside the servant's room
And pledged their love so true
In rapture they forgot the king
And all his wrath would do
They stole a moment here and there
And hours by and by
As winter turned around to spring
And the summer sun soared high

CH 2
There's no key to take you here
That can unlock a dream
You can't touch what you can't see
And it's not what it seems

Lead break

But then one day the autumn came
When trees were cold and bare
A henchman of his majesty
Caught the lovers there
And for such infidelity
The king decreed that she
Be locked up with her lover
For all eternity
CH 3
Do not try to free us now
We've found happiness
You can't unlock undying love
With all that you possess
