Haven't posted any lyrics for a little while so here's one I've just written... it's a little over the place but it's got some nice phrasing in there. And, yes, it does have a tune to it (at least it was written to one - whether I remember it or not down the line is anyone's guess!  :P


QUEEN OF FOOLS (NO ONE BUT YOU)


No, it’s not what you think
There was never “a thing”
It has always and only been you
But you drive me insane
With the things that you claim
You’re a million miles from the truth

Just ‘cos I speak to her
Don’t mean I’m seeing her
She’s just a friend and that’s all
So pack all your doubts away
You know that I’m here to stay
Don’t listen to jealousy’s call

There’s no one but you
You must know deep inside
Don’t throw dice with your pride
If you lose you will push me away
The moment of truth
Lingers close to your hands
So you must understand
That there’s no one but you
At the end of the day
And if you need the proof
Have I ever not stayed
When you asked me to?
There’s no one but you…

~INSTRUMENTAL~

So, it’s time that you choose
Is it me or the noose?
For the death of a heart is a waste
And the tears you would cry
Would not heal your tall pride
So why fall for its own, twisted sake?

Fools tread where angels daren’t
But they only end up hurt
Don’t crown yourself queen of that realm
But faith in the two of us
Can save you from giving up
And finding the dream’s gone as well

There’s no one but you
You must know deep inside
Don’t throw dice with your pride
If you lose you will push me away
The moment of truth
Lingers close to your hands
So you must understand
That there’s no one but you
At the end of the day
And if you need the proof
Have I ever not stayed
When you asked me to?

There’s no one but you…
And that’s all that I know
You don’t want me to go
But you’re trying to push me away
Your jealousy grew
Until it poisoned your heart
Now it’s so far off the chart
Babe there’s no one but you
So what more can I say?
I’ve been faithful to you
Would you throw it away
As the queen of fools?

There’s no one but you…
Then darkness fell
As the 1st God and the 2nd burned in hell
And all alone
Stood the 3rd God looking wearied to the bone

Your lyrics tell the story and meaning so well with really great imagery. I think you covered everything :)
