This song is called Lilth and Eve – Well, actually the words are only lyrics. I very much wish I had the talent or even the smallest of capabilities to take the words to fruition (music, voices) but that won’t happen any time soon. My guitar will have to wait some time longer for me! In the meanwhile I will write with a tune or voice in mind. I have even taped my own voice but cringe and blush when I listen back.

These lyrics are about a woman and the two sides to her personality. We are not all perfect ribbons and curls. As humans we are very much a mix of good and ‘evil’ – hence the title which refers of course to the story of Adam, Eve and the Garden of Eden. The garden of Eden is discussed in great detail by an online friend of mine, Susan Scott on her website and in her book, ‘In Praise of Lilth, Eve and the Serpent in the Garden of Eden‘. She and her insights were the inspiration for this song. It has been handed over to a very able musician as a song is not a song until we hear the voice behind it.

LILTH and EVE

Unleashed, unhinged , deranged,
Plain ole crazy’s how you had me feelin’
Just lookin’ past the dance floor
On the bar side where you stood.

Telling lips and thighs
Black leather, heels
Playing with your eyes and hair
Furtive glances everywhere
Til your eyes locked with mine.

Right then and there I knew you were the one
I’d been searching for so long
My Lilith and my Eve a woman of my heart.
You had me laughin in my daydreams
You had me screamin in my nightmares
You were my Lilith and my Eve
You had me ever on my knees
You got me baby, beggin please

Down to the lake I spied on you
Fair mermaid in my midst
All delicate angelic like, wanton moves
Body swimming languishing in time
Furtive glances everywhere
Til your eyes locked with mine

Once more I knew you were the one
I’d been searching for so long…
My Lilith and my Eve a woman of my heart.
You had me laughin in my daydreams
You had me screamin in my nightmares
You were my Lilith and my Eve
You had me ever on my knees
You had me baby, beggin please

Some say it’s true and rightly so
That loves a burning thing
I say to that exactly right
and precisely to this day
the force your fire lit me with
will surely see me to my grave.

You had me laughin in my daydreams
You had me screamin in my nightmares
You were my Lilith and my Eve
You had me ever on my knees
You had me baby, beggin please

Your bags are packed and shower took
I heard you cryin all the while
Wiping out my smiling heart
As car keys clink and fade away
I should have known
A girl like you would never stay.

You had me laughin in my daydreams
You had me screamin in my nightmares
You are my Lilith and my Eve
You have me ever on my knees
You have me baby, beggin please …

For those who may be interested here is an article on Gobekli Tepe by National Geographic in Eastern Turkey where it is believed the Garden of Eden was.

Known as Göbekli Tepe (pronounced Guh-behk-LEE TEH-peh), the site is vaguely reminiscent of Stonehenge, except that Göbekli Tepe was built much earlier and is made not from roughly hewn blocks but from cleanly carved limestone pillars splashed with bas-reliefs of animals—a cavalcade of gazelles, snakes, foxes, scorpions, and ferocious wild boars. The assemblage was built some 11,600 years ago, seven millennia before the Great Pyramid of Giza. It contains the oldest known temple. Indeed, Göbekli Tepe is the oldest known example of monumental architecture—the first structure human beings put together that was bigger and more complicated than a hut. When these pillars were erected, so far as we know, nothing of comparable scale existed in the world.

Have a great weekend all – Peace
