Trust Me

This song is by Jeff Wayne and appears on the album Jeff Wayne's Musical Version Of Spartacus (1992).

Palene: Mountains and ravines: Scyllaeum was a desolate place. We were in despair. All except Spartacus. He had a plan for our escape. Far below in the port, were anchored the ships of the Cilician pirates. Spartacus and I climbed down the cliffs to meet their leader, Isoricus.
As we entered his tent we saw a handsome, olive-skinned man, lying on rich, embroidered cushions, while a beautiful slave-girl combed his long black hair and another brought him a silver goblet of sherbet. Isoricus greeted us like a courteous king.

Isoricus:
There you stand before me,
And you're slightly at a loss,
Now you know the seas are stormy,
And only I can get across,
You come to me to see if I can pull you through,
It can't be easy for a man like you,
To be in this situation,
I'd love to help you with a noble deed,
Deliver you in your hour of need,
To your final destination,
I try to do the best that I can,
Oh I try and I try,
'Cause I've always been a man you can count on.

So, trust me,
And I won't let you down,
'Cause my word is a by-word for honesty,
So trust me,
I won't let you down,
I'll get you where you want to go, oh!
That's the way it must be,
'Cause there isn't any doubt,
That I can get you out,
Yes I'm a man of honour,
So I guess you're gonna have to,
Trust me.

Call me sentimental,
I'm prepared to take a chance,
Just to cover incidentals,
I need a little in advance,
You know I'd love to give you my assistance free,
But it's not easy for a man like me,
With a business to take care of,
The cost of living only seems to rise,
But the cost of dying is what I advise,
You'd be wise to be aware of,
I try to do the best that I can,
Oh I try and I try,
'Cause you know that I'm a man of compassion.

So, trust me,
And I won't let you down,
'Cause my word is a by-word for honesty,
So trust me,
I won't let you down,
I'll get you where you want to go, oh!
That's the way it must be,
'Cause there isn't any doubt,
That I can get you out,
Yes I'm a man of honour,
So I guess you're gonna have to,
Trust me.

As I watch you walk away,
You wear an air of satisfaction,
'Round here you're just a sideshow,
I'm the main attraction,
My word is a by-word,
For something that's for sure,
But honesty's a quality,
That I'm not famous for,
I mean what did you expect?
I'm a pirate for god's sake!
You've put your faith in me,
And it's the last mistake you'll make,
Trust me, trust me.

I hear that on your travels,
You've amassed yourself some treasure,
To take it off your hands,
Will be an honour and a pleasure,
But don't be too depressed,
That you've been cheated, robbed and lied to,
In desperate situations,
Men believe what they decide to,
And when I double cross you,
It's not because I hate you,
It's really nothing personal,
It's simply in my nature,
Trust me.

You made a wise decision, your future's set
This is one agreement you will not forget,
In a hurry I assure you,
We've made a deal and I guarantee,
You'll have a good reason to remember me,
In the days that lie before you,
I try to do the best that I can,
Oh I try and I try,
'Cause I've always been a man to rely on.

So, trust me,
And I won't let you down,
'Cause my word is a by-word for honesty,
So trust me,
I won't let you down,
I'll get you where you want to go, oh!
That's the way it must be,
'Cause there isn't any doubt,
That I can get you out,
Yes I'm a man of honour,
So I guess you're gonna have to,
Trust me.

Palene: Isoricus demanded everything we had captured from the Romans in return for his help. The price was heavy but our hearts were light as we left the pirate's tent.
