It Wouldn’t Be The First Time. (Sawyer’s Song)
Lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2020

If people come with ledgers where our deeds align
I know that there’s an awful lot of red in mine
To pay a debt in blood, well, in my life of crime
It wouldn’t be the first time.

I agreed to be her guard, and it was understood
If she survives to grieve me, I will call it good.
To see myself discarded, in my life of crime,
It wouldn’t be the first time.

She thinks that it’s a secret she does not agree,
But a face is so much clearer than a book to me.
She thinks she can deceive me, in my life of crime
It wouldn’t be the first time

I’m not so unfamiliar with the web we weave
To set before a friend we practice to deceive.
Lying to a woman—in my life of crime
Well, it wouldn’t be the first time.

I write music about science fiction and fantasy subjects, commonly referred to as "filk."

I write much faster than I can record. Recent songs may be found at my website--the URL is given below.
