"Nights of Arabia" as written by Roy S. Khantatat and Thomas Youngblood....
Came across the waters
A kingdom in the sands
Unfaithful to the sultan
A killing was at hand
Challenged to survival
A legacy of fear
Eternal mystic legends
One for every tear

Nights of Arabia
The queen has lost her right to life
Nights of Arabia
Her destiny in story lies
Nights of Arabia
A thousand tales and one for life
These are the nights of Arabia

Whispers in the moonlight
A gathering of vales
Circled round the fire
To hear this evenings tale
Standing on the threshold
The crest of darkened nights
Seduction of the hunter
This slave regains her might

"Lost inside a shadow
Erase the sins I've made
Heavenly reward me
With mercy on my fate"

Nights of Arabia
The queen has lost her right to life
Nights of Arabia
Her destiny in story lies
Nights of Arabia
A thousand tales and one for life
These are the nights of Arabia
Sheherazade will never die

The sultan relents his feeble heart
His love for his queen is greater than he'll ever know
"it's easy to let you feed my nights
Someone to touch, someone to hold,
Someone to feel, someone to love"

"here I am to die alone
Voices from heaven above
Hear my call awaken my soul
Forgive me for what I have done"

Challenged to survival
A legacy of fear
Eternal mystic legends
One for every tear

    General Comment"Nights of Arabia"
    This is based on the tales "Arabian Nights" written 100's of years ago.
    Out of this tale spawned Sindbad, Ali Baba and many more. Queen Scheherazade
    is kept captive and sentenced to die for adultery. The song was my
    favorite to record and also the lush strings we added make it very Epic.
    "The art of being a slave is to rule one's master".

    General CommentHey, hey, stay true to the story! Scheherezade by herself was guilty of nothing. Check, for example, wiki:

    "The story goes that every day Shahryar (Persian: شهریار - Šahryār‎, "city-server" or the king) would marry a new virgin, and after doing so would dispatch the previous day's wife to be beheaded. This was done in anger, having found out that his first wife was unfaithful to him. He had killed 1,000 such women by the time he was introduced to Scheherazade, the vizier's daughter."

    That vizier's daughter being Scheherezade, who went on telling her husband stories and fairytales each night (of the "to be continued" sort). Those were so charming and interesting that he'd postpone her execution every next day only to hear what happened next. After 1001 such night he finally gave up and decided to keep her as his "permanent" wife abandoning his previous vicious decision.
