From the recording Scheherazade [Scorpion Moon]

<p>I have loved the story of Scheherazade for as long as I can remember.&nbsp; The desire for the fame and fortune of a crown has been the impetus for many evil deeds.&nbsp; Such power wields its own price, including a very real and insular loneliness that manifests from being personally invisible behind the visibility of the position.</p>

Lyrics

<p>Spin me a tale for your life<br /> And make me believe again<br /> Take me away from this farce<br /> Of monstrous and kingly vice<br /><br /> How I want you to love me<br /> To love me unbound<br /> How I want you to need me<br /> To need me unfound<br /> Beneath your fabled sun <br /> And your scorpion moon<br /> I need you to want me <br /> Beyond this savage world of sand<br /><br /> I saw through your cunning plan<br /> A rapture of dancing words<br /> Your honey voice, nomad eyes<br /> The dervish wind to my fire<br /><br /> How I want you to love me<br /> To love me unbound<br /> How I want you to need me<br /> To need me unfound<br /> Beneath your fabled sun<br /> And your scorpion moon<br /> I need you to want me <br /> Beyond this savage world of sand<br /><br /> Oh thousand nights forgive this murderous pride<br /> That morning betrays<br /> Oh maybe my life will be redeemed to know<br /> To know<br /><br /> To know that you love me<br /> You love me unbound<br /> To know that you need me<br /> You need me unfound<br /> How I want you to love me<br /> To love me unbound<br /> How I want you to need me<br /> To need me unfound<br /> Beneath your fabled sun<br /> And your scorpion moon<br /> I need you to want me <br /> As much as I want you.</p>
