"Melissa" as written by Kim Bendix Petersen and Hank Shermann....
Melissa

I'm kneeling in front of the altar
Satan's cross upon the wall
Strange emptiness, a crystal ball between two candles

Melissa, you were mine
Melissa, you were the light

She was a witch
Why did they take you away?

Melissa, you were the queen of the night
Melissa, you were my light
I swear revenge on the priest
The priest my die
He must die in the name of Hell

Melissa, can you hear me?
Melissa, are you there?

Nothing is left outside at the stake
They're taken her away from me

    General CommentThis is my favorite character. Melissa. There's like 3 songs. She was a witch (obviously) who was burned at the stake and he (King Diamond's character?) wanted to take revenge on the preist who killed her.

    General CommentJazzButcher, yes he had a microphone handle made out of human femurs.
    He also had a skull named Melissa (inspired by the witch) but I think that got stolen
