Stats for this track
My attempt at a dark and gothic rock style.
Music made with Garageband for iPad and Mac.
A lot of effort in this one, I'd love to know what you think.

Lyrics based on “The Cruel Maid” by the incredible 17th Century English Poet Robert Herrick.
"No More, But So"
--AND, cruel maid, because I see
You scornful of my love, and me,
I'll trouble you no more, but go
My way, where you shall never know
What is become of me; there I
Will find me out a path to die,
Or learn some way how to forget
You and your name for ever;--yet
Here I go hence, know this from me,
What will in time your fortune be;
This to your coyness I will tell;
And having spoke it once, Farewell.
--The lily will not long endure,
Nor the snow continue pure;
The rose, and violets decay
And fade you must as well as they.
And it may chance that love may turn,
And, like to mine, make your heart burn
When you shall see that I am dead,
For pity let a tear be shed;
Next hollow out a tomb to cover
Me, the most despised lover;
And write thereon, THIS, READER, KNOW;
LOVE KILL'D THIS MAN. No more, but so.
