Song Meaning
Verse 1
Ooh, and 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
Verse 2
From the mouth of the monster
He rescues the maiden fair
But we know she's a demon
Come to lure him to the demon's lair
Verse 3
Through restless foliage
And tall trees she leads
To a house in a clearing
A place in her fear she calls home
Verse 4
Come with me I need you
I fear the dark and I live all alone
I'll give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like
Verse 5
And though his body bids him
To enter in with her
There was something in her manner
That his mind could not ignore
Verse 6
Also it is whispered
In the kingdom far and wide
To beware a little cottage
In the forest in a glade
Verse 7
For who knows what magic
Takes place in his world
So he just thanks her kindly
Preparing to go on his way
Verse 8
Come with me I need you
I fear the dark and I live all alone
I'll give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like
Verse 9
Come to my garden
Taste the fruits and the spices of love
You can't resist me
I'm the kind that your dreams tell you of
Verse 10
So glad you could make it
We had everything arranged
So glad you saw fit to pay a call
Verse 11
Some men never listen
And other never learn
But why this man did as he did
Only he will ever know
Verse 12
He knew he was walking
Into a waiting trap
Neatly set up for him
With a bait so richly wrapped
Verse 13
So he went inside there
To take on what he found
But he never escaped them
For who can escape what he desires
Verse 14
Come with me I need you
I fear the dark and I live all alone
I'll give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like
