The man steps out in the moonlight
At the sound of a scream from below.
He thinks he is a warrior
So he picks up his sword and goes.

From the mouth of the monster
He rescues the maiden fair.
But we know shes a demon
Come to lure him to demons lair.

Through restless foliage and tall trees he leads
To a house in a clearing, a place in her fear she calls home.

Come with me, I need you,
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
Ill give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like.

And though his body bids him
To enter in with her,
There was something in her manner
That his mind could not ignore.

Also it is whispered
In the kingdom far and wide,
To beware a little cottage
In the forest in a glade.

For who knows what magic takes place in his world?
So he just thanks her kindly preparing to go on his way.

Come with me, I need you,
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
Ill give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like.

Come to my garden,
Taste the fruits and the spices of love.
You cant resist me,
Im the kind that your dreams tell you of.

So glad you could make it
We had everything arranged.
So glad you saw fit to pay a call.

Some men never listen,
And others never learn,
But why this man did as he did
Only he will ever know.

He knew he was walking
Into a waiting trap,
Neatly set up for him
With a bait so richly wrapped.

So he went inside there to take on what he found
But he never escaped them, for who can escape what he desires?

Come with me, I need you,
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
Ill give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like.
