the vampire's song


Released: 2009 on 'London'



I will come to you tonight
Silent as a breath of air
Standing in your dreams
Unheard and unseen
I will cast no shadow there

I will watch you as you sleep
Steal the perfume from your hair
I will mime your every breath
I will breathe your life till death
Comes back to hack my jackdaw bones
Iíll love you till thereís nothing left

And oh my love
Like a raging storm you sing in me
Let me fly in you
The way you fly through me
Oh my beautiful, my broken love
You seep like sunlight in my veins

But who has walked this earthly slope
And never felt the pain of love
Nor ever lent an idle flame
To the oil of some dark dream
Nor dressed in gold a useless hope

Here, in this dry blood, moon-boned black
In all my seasons set in wax
What hell below could near contend
With this, what plague could heaven send
Much worse to curse my thirsting soul
Than for your kiss, but in the end

You know my love
Like a raging storm you sing in me
Let me fly in you
The way you fly through me
Oh my beautiful, my broken love
You spread like bruises in my blood

Let the darkness reign
Let the silence fall
And through this winding wickless night
I will come to you once more

And there in your eyes
I will run again
Through all the summers of another world
A joy so pure it feels like pain
