stormy (ballad of a vampire) lyrics – blind iris

stormy says the sun is too bright
she sleeps in all day
waits for the night
seldom smiles
always paints her face white
i think it brings out the fire in her eyes

the way i see it
we are one in the same
both looking for hearts to burn with
in flames
she says “love is blind
we’re all destined to change”
put her lips up to my ear
her breathe felt hot on my face

and she said “scream, scream
blackberries and cream
the first time that i saw you
i was lost in a dream”
and she said “cry, cry
to the moon in the sky
if i should loose your love away
and this night should turn to day
i surely will die”

lights out
down on her knees
pulls out her record collection
of dark symphonies
puts the needle down
spin round and round
i saw a flash of red
and then she rose up off the ground

she said “please, please
child listen to me
if your not superst*tious
you had better believe”
and she said “lie, lie
no i will not lie
i need a soul to give away
so i can live another day
now you must die”

i felt a wicked sensation
black smoke crept from the ventilation
she said “strange you never knew
we’re all across the nation”
as my blood began to boil
and her fangs began to rise
i pulled out my cross necklace
and i stuck it in her eye

she said “scream, scream
blackberries and cream
we could have been together
but you put your faith in me”
and she said ” cry, cry
to the moon in the sky
when i return to find
beware my love will blind you
and you’ll die”

fragmented oblivion
paterns creep across the floor
the smokes tranquil
free’s my thoughts to go
somewhere in my head
i see her naked white and cold
and i can’t help but wonder
why it was that she’d chosen me
i wonder, i wonder
why a l*st for her still burdens me

so i fathom the thought of the summers breeze
i fathom the thought of the stormy sea’s
oh yeah, uh huh
