Native American Music
You played my Soul like a flute Tuned to the beating of my Heart I ate the forbidden fruit Thought I could dodge the poisoned dart Your melody so entrancing It took my breath away And soon our bodies were dancing Time stopped night merged with day Was it just a dream A girlish fantasy Things are not always what they seem For the flute you played was me
