*Most people who know me know I have an obsession with the band Iron Maiden, so I decided to do something a little different. The band has a series of songs over different albums that are basically dubbed the “Charlotte The Harlot” series. This one is love-related but heavily draws from and is based on the 4 songs connected to the series, “Charlotte the Harlot”, “22 Acacia Avenue”, “Hooks In You”, and “From Here to Eternity”. For Iron Maiden fans, yes the reference in the one line to “Wasting Love” was intentional.*
Charlotte don’t you see what you’re doing here?
Selling yourself for the money and beer.
Your red light’s on fire in the dead of night.
For fifteen quid you’ll make a man feel right.
Over at 22 you act so nice,
So long as the boys reach your meeting price.
You’re always acting like it’s no big sin.
You always love it when the hooks move in.
Don’t you see all the harm that you’re doing?
Pack up your bags and stop all that screwing.
From here to eternity we will ride.
I’m wasting love without you by my side.
You don’t even realize all that you do.
Hell ain’t a bad place when I’m here with you.
