There’s a medieval stone tower
built in thirteen forty eight
where she told me I should meet her
and she begged me “Don’t be late!”

It was used for spotting fires
back in seventeen seventeen
but the passionate flames
that we both shared
was a heat it had not seen.

I was labeled as a foreigner
just a fool in Istanbul
who had fallen for this Turkish gal
but her father had strict rules

Plus she also had six brothers
who were built like Huge bronzed Gods
and she told me they had found our plan
from my texts on her I-pod
But I chose to face the odds

Even though her father had arranged
a marriage she despised and
I’d find my face all rearranged
if I met up with these guys.

In a town that they call Galata
sneaking like a common thief
to steal away with the girl I loved
against her families beliefs.

Down alleyways at the crack of dawn
with just minutes to spare
then suddenly I came Upon
her brothers standing there.

They must have seen my latest text
that I”d sent her on her phone
but I had set a backup plan
and I was not alone

Imagine all their great dismay
when six of my best friends
all lean and mean and ex-Marines
came walking round the bend
.
Cause I had an appointment
with no time for them to bash me
so I left them to the devil dogs
and jumped into a taxi.

I had two tickets pre-reserved
for an airport quite near by
so I had the cab go quick and nab
my girlfriend on the fly

Her passport was in order
thanks to smugglers that I knew
So we settled in to first class seats
and few off into the blue.

Love can’t be stopped by any rules
new or antiquidated
A show of faith and force will do
or usew a trick if you need mated

Thus happily ever after
we both shared our wedded life
and she wrote her mother to comfort her
saying she was a joyous wife.

The moral of my story is
Marry only who you want to
don’t let family or friends dare sway you
their decisions just might haunt you.

Hey MFB,

A very compelling and listenable tune. Great lyrics and a story well told.

Problem ? The vocal line is not "gelled" with the backing track. Good and compelling tune which needs production.to make it shine.

cheers, niteshift

Hey Niteshift, it is a learning process, that I am struggling with and gradually getting better. Production is in the works. but the brilliant writers of the music i work with are not as speedy as I am in getting it gelled. which is O.K. the songs are drawing hundreds of hits and some thousands all over the sites i frequent by listeners who enjoy music without a trained ear. Meanwhile it's back to the boards awaiting what's to come. Thanks so much for your comment.

"The great thing about a dream come true, is that it is born with a great appetite. That appetite keeps it growing and evolving and it swallows up all those other dreams you have and spits them back out as reality as well." -Brian Austin Whitney
