Your White Knight in Shining Armor

I am your white knight in shining armor,
I tried to rescue you from the high tower,
you were waving a white cloth torn from your bed,
I tried to climb the tower walls but the Lord's archer
found me dead.
You took your own life in despair, so as to not fall into
the hands of the Castles lair,
and fate had found us both there,
a place called Tancarville by the seas of Normandy.
