Lyrics of the Week: Love Song For a Vampire

Another one from a movie! (Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula, utter nonsense if you ask me) These are some of my favorite lyrics, period, and a constant source of inspiration.

Love Song For a Vampire - Annie Lennox

 Come into these arms again
And lay your body down
The rhythm of this trembling heart
Is beating like a drum

It beats for you - It bleeds for you
It knows not how it sounds
For it is the drum of drums
It is the song of songs...

Once I had the rarest rose
That ever deigned to bloom.
Cruel winter chilled the bud
And stole my flower too soon.

Oh loneliness - oh hopelessness
To search the ends of time
For there is in all the world
No greater love than mine.

Love, oh love, oh love...
Still falls the rain... (still falls the rain)
Love, oh love, oh, love...
Still falls the night...
Love, oh love, oh love...
Be mine forever.... (be mine forever)
Love, oh love, oh love....

Let me be the only one
To keep you from the cold
Now the floor of heaven's lain
With stars of brightest gold

They shine for you - they shine for you
They burn for all to see
Come into these arms again
And set this spirit free

Your pal,

  1. I'm embarrassed to admit, I've never watched this Dracula. I do like Anthony Hopkins so maybe someday I will. I'm more into the old "Daughter of Dracula,' and Hammer series. These lyrics are beautiful and should be a source for inspiration! Di
