This is Saskia’s original song, write me a song. It’s a folk style ballad about a travelling man who has left the world behind, and been forgotten by it. And while the path is lonely, he has no troubles or cares and so is at peace, which you see at the end.

Lyrics are:

Wandering through the land, came a long forgotten man.
As tall as he was weary, with a hammer in his hand.
He’d spent years fighting treachery among his brother from the sam country,
He said the world, is built on castles in the sand.

A woman he’d had feelings for, had left him several years before.
He was tired of the pain that so often comes with age.
With his burning lips and aching hands he cast aside his world’s demands,
And he took me by the hand and slowly said:

Jenny, jenny would you write me a song?
‘Coz it’s been years since I left at home, or where I could belong.
And I haven;t met a single man who would put down his gun, so,
Jenny, would you write me a song?

His daughters, he’d had one or two, they left before he really knew them,
People seemed to fade before him, either that or just ignore him.
Fame and fortune came his way, and the plagues that followed in it’s wake and sighing now, he asked me once again:

Jenny, jenny would you write me a song?
‘Coz it’s been years since I felt at home,
Or where I could belong…
And I haven’t met a single man who would put down his gun,
So jenny, would you write me a song?

His eyes were clear, his face was kind, there was no fear upon his mind.
There’s nothing you can take you see, from a man already gone,
No sorrow at what’s gone before, or terror of what could befall and smiling now, he asked me, once more:

Jenny, Jenny would you write me a song?
‘Coz it’s been years since I felt at home, or where I could belong, and I haven’t met a single man who would put down his guns, so,
Jenny, would you write me a song?

David…david, here I wrote you a song.
‘Coz it’s been years since I felt at home, or where I could belong.
And no I didn’t meet a single man who would put down his guns,
So, David, here I wrote you a song.
David I have written you this song.
David, here, I wrote you a song…
