Lyrics - Medieval Times

A maid lived in a castle

Alone she was for many a year

She’d smile and play

Throughout her day

But some castle doors were shut in fear

Some castle doors where shut in fear

A knight arrived one stormy evening

His armor was a hard-won shell

His eyes knew pain beyond his age

“Sir Geoff has come,” the page boys yell

“Sir Geoff has come,” the page boys yell


    He said, “You don’t have to be afraid

    You just need to be brave

    I will share the secret of the dove

    You don’t have to be perfect to be loved.”

He took her down the darkened hallway

And opened slowly the first door

There lie the babe so pale and still

“You need not grieve him anymore”

He said, “You need not grieve him anymore

The second portal, there was much noise

The angry ghost of the king behind the door

Sir Geoff said,

“You know the king is dead

You need not fear him anymore

You need not fear him anymore”


The third door he sighed

The laws of the land

Were posted there forever more

But he tore them down

And touched my crown

“You know what rules were put there for,

He said, “You need not heed them anymore”

Sir Geoff rode out of town the next day

He had so many gifts to give

The battles he fights

The peace he seeks

The love that will forever live,

The love that will forever live.
