"The Vampire Waltz" as written by and Hannah Marie Fury....
The light in your eyes beckons to me
It beckons so quietly, but I hear it clearly
You start walking towards me
Taking my breath and fearlessly setting me free

Oh, I feel it being drawn out
The blood flowing steadily into your mouth
This dark night, cruel and cold
You whisper softly, "Honey, you'll never grow old"

Looking back at the crowd
Back at the party
I step outside and disappear swiftly
Oh, I feel it being drawn out

The pain of life fading, going down south
Lost in the wake of my wedding
And caught here at these old crossroads
I can never leave

I think I've been fooled
Why am I not dressed in white?
With eyes full of glory and wine
I'll be your eternal bride

I'll be here forever
Here, on this night
Why am I not dressed in white?
I need you near me

I think I've been fooled
I need you near me
I think I've been fooled
You carry me over the crossroads

And I'm lost on this cold, dark night
Why am I not dressed in white?
I carry a mandrake in my bouquet
And I shiver when it screams

I carry a mandrake in my bouquet
And I shiver when it screams
The light in your eyes is still calling to me
Taking my whole world and setting it spinning

Knowing my weakness, the spark lies in the sand
Taking my hand, you lead me into the dance
Oh, I feel it being drawn out
My soul is rushing right into your mouth

How could you take me away from the party?
I think I've been fooled
How could you take me away from the party?
I think I've been fooled

I need you near me
I think I've been fooled
I carry a mandrake in my bouquet
And I shiver when it screams

I need you near me
I think I've been fooled
I carry a mandrake in my bouquet
And I shiver when it screams

With eyes full of lust and light
I'll be your eternal bride
I'll be here forever
Here, on this night

Oh, why am I not dressed in white?
Something is not right
Will the light spark?

    General Commentwell i think the meaning of the song is obvious, but i enjoy explaining what i've taken from the song anyway :D

    so i'm guessing this must be the Victorian era or earlier because i interpret this as a girl who was forced into a miserable marriage, as was often the case in those days, and wants an escape.

    so it's her wedding day. seems to me that they already said their vows and now it's the reception and in the distance, she can see fangyboy beckoning. she's miserable and hates what she just did, vowing herself to someone she doesn't love, so she comes to him where he lures her in and tells her pretty things such as "you'll never grow old if you join me" and probably other things not mentioned in the song. she's enthralled and lets him take her. she's no longer pure and no longer dressed in white.

    in my imagination, she is now going to wed this vampire and she all of a sudden is in a different dress and her bride's bouquet has a mandrake. i imagine everything around her changing, including atmosphere. things are becoming frightening. she now realizes what she's done, hence the line "i think i've been fooled" and she's realizing she pledged herself to this powerful being and things are not as pretty as they once seemed. she's scared and having 2nd thoughts....but it's too late.

    but at the same time, she would never want to go back to what was waiting for her before this mysterious man came. so it seems she's torn between wanting to be away from the old life but at the same time, still fearing her new life. but it doesn't matter anyway. she's past the point of no return.

    now she's dependent on this vampire and "need[s him] near [her]" and still has a bit of optimism about this enchanting but fearsome situation
