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

Here’s the story of a boy who lost his girl,
Found her, then lost her again!
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
