Lyrics

The Tyrant

Written By: Patricia Frohmader

In war-torn France I used to sing
There on my finger he placed a ring
After taking me back to his American home
I was ordered to stay and not to roam
I thought America was the land of the free
But only a tyrant was I to see

All I want to do was sing
It’s my heart and soul
It’s what I believe
If you get in my way you know I will find
Some determent like singing tonight

After one night when he was gone
In a bar I sang a song
They wanted me to join the staff
I could finally sing my songs at last
But he tracked me done like a bird of prey
Warning me not to make another display

All I want to do was sing
It’s my heart and soul
It’s what I believe
If you get in my way you know I will find
Some determent like singing tonight

My heart went back across the sea
My one desire was only to flee
My love affair had finally died
From this marriage I’ll be a bride
And I could start to sing happy songs
If I could tell the tyrant it’s over, I’m gone

All I want to do was sing
It’s my heart and soul
It’s what I believe
If you get in my way you know I will find
Some determent like singing tonight
