"Two Knights And Maidens" as written by and Brad Roberts....
Once there were two knights and maidens
They'd walk together
Out in the gardens
In all kinds of weather

The knights always pestered the maidens
To love them together
Out in the gardens
And they could watch each other

The maidens had other plans for the two knights
They'd give them potions
And make them see dreams and lights

The knights took the potions gladly
They laughed at their visions
But outside the garden
Tigers smelled them together

The maidens had other plans for the two knights
They'd give them potions
And make them see dreams and lights

The knights only laughed at the tigers
They thought they were visions
Out in the garden
The maidens watched them together

Ah, but for the two knights
Ah, but for maidens
Who gave to them dreams and lights

    General CommentIn my opinion this is basically a totally normal modern day drama thats been converted into a fairytale

    "The knights always pestered the maidens
    To love them together
    Out in the gardens
    And they could watch each other"

    its quite naughty really and i basically get that its about two men (the knights) that want to "make love" and watch each other but the women werent comfortable doing that at all.

    I might be totally wrong but thats exactly what i get from it i think hes just written a cheeky song in a way that is totally non threatening.

    General CommentMaybe I'm misinterpreting it, but I get the impression it's about the differences between men and women, but not in a negative way. They have different plans for each other, but they all get along.

    General CommentI know it has been a while since the last post, but the first one is all wrong. This song could go one of either two ways. 1. This is about the scornfulness of women. meaning that dispite what you do or no matter what measure you goto you can never please a women. I doubt this is what brad intended. So on to #2. This song is about Trust. Meaning that the knights trusted the maidens so that they felt comfortable taking advantage of that trust (The knights always pestered the maidens), but in the end, it was this taking the maidens for granted that led to the knights ending up the plates of the lions (din din) which in it self it another metaphore. But I am sure if you edited 1 and 2 together eventually the true meaning will be found.
