Well now after all the corridors are darkened
When the royal crown is off your head
To your chambers I will creep not a word we will speak
Just love me while the fire light dances 'round the bed

Well there is danger in this passion
Because the king can never, never know
And on my blood I've sworn my allegiance
So I'll leave you when the sunlight comes and beckons me to go

And the silver shine is tarnished from my armor
And in battle I am paralyzed with fear
And this poison in my soul is the love we'll never know
And it finds me playing Lancelot to your Guinevere

Guinevere is sly enough to steal a little taste
And her laughter it peals into the night
Oh but forbidden fruit always stays sticky on your face
Without virtue I'm worthless in a fight

Stealing little glances at the table
I feel that this is theater in the round
But far away chasing victims in the meadow
Your love like wind, blows right by and sweeps me off the ground
Your love sweeps me off the ground
Well now it sweeps me off the the ground
Well now it sweeps me off the the ground

And the silver shine is tarnished from my armor
And in battle I am paralyzed with fear, oh
And this poison in my soul is the love we'll never know
And it finds me playing Lancelot to your Guinevere
To your Guinevere
And it finds me playing Lancelot to your Guinevere
