Katzenjammer – Play My Darling Play lyrics

A messenger arrived through
A sunlit' open door
Passed the dangers of the world
To his troubled queen so bored
With a voice full of worry and
A frightened fighter's face
Another day's morning in life's busy race
He looked into her eyes before he spoke

Play my darling, play
Don't you put yourself on the throne no more
Play my darling, play
There's a world outside our broken borders
Play my darling, play
Don't you put your key in another door
Play my darling, play

With a world outside your broken borders
She's a lonely young girl
She's the sister of the moon
Her heart is like November
Though she wants it to be June
Larger than life she's standing there so tall
There's a note with her name and
It's hanging on the wall
Her eyes they opened wide when she read

(Play my darling, play)

She's stuck there on her
Island so marooned
The limelights got
Her blinded and harpooned

    **Wheel of Time spoiler alert**
    This song makes me think of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, and the relationship between Mat and Tuon. She works hard to assert her position due to her strong sense of duty and her people's culture of control and dominance, while he tries to treats her like a normal girl because he cares for her and wants her to enjoy life. The lyric about "sister of the moon" particularly made me perk up because it is similar to "daughter of the nine moons." I have no idea if this song was inspired by the Wheel of Time canon, but I like to think it was.
