Lamp You Left Behind (parody of Candle in the Wind)

Post by Drassil » Thu May 02, 2013 6:03 pm

A tribute to David "Jock" Campbell, Knightmare's first dungeoneer. Based on Candle in the Wind by Elton John. Lyrics, Video.

Goodbye, David C
Though I never knew you at all
You were the first to wear the Helm
To walk the hallowed halls
You brought your friends from Cranfield
They gave guidance into your brain
You went into the Dungeon
And you stayed to play the game

And it seems to me you lost your quest
By the lamp you left behind
Never knowing what to hold up
When the dark set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
The Campbell burned out long before
Your legend ever did

OPEN first was tough
The portcullis took time to raise
Olgarth you gave two right answers to
And short was the trail you blazed
Even when you died
Oh you lived on in our time
David, James and Lucian
Walked away with you as Treguard said bye

And it seems to me you lost your quest
By the lamp you left behind
Never knowing what to hold up
When the dark set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
The Campbell burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Goodbye, David C
Though I never knew you at all
You were the first to tread the path
That Monday afternoon
Goodbye, David C
From the young fan with same first name as you
Who thanks you for being first on Knightmare
More than just another TV show

And it seems to me you lost your quest
By the lamp you left behind
Never knowing what to hold up
When the dark set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
The Campbell burned out long before
Your legend ever did
