Lyrics

 


Chapter One; Very long ago


there lived in a valley the heart of a broken man


 


For the love he lost he would forever yearn


The fruits of life had fallen from a dying vine


 


As it’s told, she upped and left him cold


He’d bargained all his love for monetary dreams


 


And all she left was their only son


who’d grow to learn the lessons of his father’s words…


 


Beware of the burning ladder


There’s nowhere left but down


You know I made a fortune


I made fortune, son


There’s nowhere left but down


Don’t climb the burning ladder


There’s nowhere left but down


 


Chapter Two; His father passed away


“From this day forth I will heed my father’s wishes”


 


Then one day he would embrace new love,


but only to be tempted by his want of money
