MERLIN'S SONG
(Graham Pratt)

Born to an age of reason
Mystery is my theme
Mine is the song of seasons
Mine is the ancient dream

Some men have called me holy
Others the devil's son
I do no more than has always been done

Magic is all too simple
Mystery all too plain
I have the power of magic
Like clouds have the power of rain

Read me the charm of flowers
Sing me the spell of sleep
Open your eyes and you'll learn where to seek

Sourcerors seeks my secrets
Soldiers may seek my fame
Wise men would seek my friendship
Foolish men seek my name

Princes have seen my glory
Harlots shall see my fall
I see the end and beginning of all

Soldiers all wrapped up in armour
Die by the dagger's thrust
Harlots all wrapped up in envy
Perish for none to trust

Clothed as I am in magic
Magic must be my fate
Silently by my own magic betrayed

Graham Pratt - In the Clear Air of the Day

as described below on Jennifer Cutting's, The New St. George (NSGMaster Set List)

MERLIN [a mysterious, dissonant original about Merlin the Magician from stellar English songwriter Graham Pratt; originally performed as an a cappella vocal trio by Bob, Jennifer, and Elise Kress; later by Bob, Jennifer, and Lisa]

Thanks Malcom

I am having the tech troubles. Even the Old Adv Forum Search in quick links not working for me. I suspect it is BT Broadband.

Not going to post anymore lyrics until i figure out what's up.

BT is not to blame, and users in the USA as well as UK are having difficulties. Keep checking the Search function help thread for information and advice.

In this instance, you would have found it if you had used the Discussion Forum Enhanced Search and then put "merlin's song" in the box called "Subject". This filters the subject line of each message, not the thread title.

The thread title in this case is "King Arthur needs your help"—which isn't very helpful for anyone searching for the song.

At least someone had the foresight to give the message an appropriate title, that is, "subject".

I'm guessing Joe or one of the JoeClones did this, since very few people use the subject line at all. Usually they just accept the default value which is "RE:" followed by the thread title.

When it's used this way, the subject line serves a very useful purpose: to identify the song, especially when the song title is different from the thread title.

(I plan to post some version of this message in the "Search function help" thread. More people ought to know about this.)

On the other hand, I just tried the ordinary "Lyrics & Knowledge Search" and found "Merlin's Song" right away. I don't know why you didn't find it, VirginiaTam.

On second thought, I'm not going to give any more advice until I know what's going on!
