"The Fiddler" by Danny Miki
Source: CD-Cover "Demons & Wizards"

Info: Demons & Wizards is a project formed by "Iced Earth"-guitarist Jon Schaffer and "Blind Guardian"-singer Hansi K├╝rsch. On their first album there's a song called "Fiddler on the Green", that tells the story of a girl that died in an accident and now meets the Fiddler - Death himself. In front of the Fiddler, there's a boy that died "accidentally", i.e. too early. Now he's stuck in a world between life and death, since his living body is already gone, but there's no room for his soul in the world of the dead yet.

You can download an excerpt from this song on the official Demons & Wizards homepage or just read the lyrics:

Fiddler on the Green

Sad voices they're calling / Our precious girl she can't be gone
How bitter this morning / When daddy's darling
Went out and started her day

Wasn't there a dream, last night / Like a spring never ending
Still the water runs clear / Through my mind
On the field I can see a fiddler / The fiddler on the green
And a sad boy
I took him too early / Would you mind / Would you mind
If I take you

To be with you

The sun seemed bright / The air was clear / The air was clear
A trick of light / turned red into green / She saw the light
Her face was pale / Her body smashed / Her beauty's gone

Isn't it a shame / The reaper said
He is quite alone here / And still waiting for you
Oh I really did fail for the first time
spoke the fiddler, poor old fiddler
The fiddler on the green

Take my hand / Just hold my hand
I'll take you there
Your pain will go away

The Fiddler
