Demo of a song I wrote. I sang and played tin whistle, the rest is MIDI/VSTi. Lyrics:

INTRO
Here’s the story of a boy who lost his girl,
Found her, then lost her again!
*
CHORUS
Dont look back, dont look back
If you want your baby back
If you want your baby back
Keep your eyes on the track
*
Eurydice she went to Hades
Orfeo he went to pieces
Put his faith in a nine-string lyre
Went down to hell to try to find her
*
Reunited in the underworld
Begs for Hades to release his girl
“I can free her but what will you pay?”
“Got no money but a lyre to play!”
*
Orfeo played and sang so sweet
All the demons tap tap tapped their feet
Hades grinned and he nodded his head
“Take your girl she no longer dead”
*
“There’s just one thing before you go
A condition placed on Orfeo
You must leave first but if you turn round
Eurydice will be Hades bound!”
*
Now Orfeo he went on ahead
Troubled in heart and troubled in head
“Eurydice, is she behind?
Or is Hades playing with my mind?”
*
Through the darkness he made his way
Until he saw the light of day
Possessed by doubt he turned around
Eurydice she fell to the ground
*
