"Love Song For A Vampire" as written by and 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 know not how it sound
For it is the drum of drums
It is the song of songs

Once I had 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

    General CommentI agree with everyone. This is one of the most chilling and haunting songs she has ever done. And I love it. It has got to be one of the best songs she has ever recorded. This song is the reason I fell in love with Annie Lennox.

    General CommentI dont care if I've heard this song 189 times. It still gives me the chills everytime. LOVE THIS SONG!!! Bram Strokers Dracula was on Sci FI channel the other night. I was actually mad they scrolled the ending credits so fast. LOL I wanted to hear the song on TV even though I have in on my Ipod and computer.

    MemoryI walked down the aisle to this on our wedding day. It worked so well. Only problem was that we didnt dare tell the parents the name of it. We just lied and said we didnt know,it was a song from a film. As my husbands dad is a vicar we didnt think he would have been happy to have a song with the word Vampire in the title played in church.
