• Deal with a Demon

    20 November 2019

    I love it when songs are written in honour of my books or characters who feature in them. I remember listening to Anthrax's song "Among the living" years ago, which is based on Stephen King's novel The Stand, and thinking how cool that would be if it ever happened with one of my stories one day.


    Well, the vampire gods have smiled on me over the years, and I've been lucky enough to have had several songs written by music-orientated fans of my books. The latest is by a lady called Aimee Heloise, who wrote a song with the title of Deal with a Demon, that was inspired by Lord Loss. It's a really cool song, and quite different to most of the other Shan songs that have been recorded, in that it's got a fairly strong country/folk vibe to it. It's still very dark lyrically, so don't worry -- I don't think anyone will be line-dancing to it! :-)

    These are the lyrics, which you can read along to while listening.


    I know a man who would love to see you fail
    See your nightmares come true be right on your trail
    If we believed in fate maybe we’d pull through
    But without faith and drive there’s not much we can do
    You see he loves to play a game and you’re the pawn who
    Thinks you’re right on track but he’s behind you
    How can we banish him from this world
    When it’s full of pain and hurt
    He’ll spin his words like webs and then he’ll blind you
    From everything that’s good you need to see the truth
    He can’t capture your soul if you speak up, open up, team up and slip his net.
    Who gave the right for him to exist here
    Feeding on memories, forcing despair
    It’s not all over when he calls check
    Block the move and counter the threat

    I made a deal with a demon, wriggled out his sticky web
    I made a deal with a demon, won’t let him punish me with death
    I made a deal with a demon, now I’ve got him in check
    That’s how you deal with a demon, sweep the board and scatter his set.
