"Sweet Sweet Heartkiller" as written by and Eric Elbogen....
In her youth she made tons of pence
Ghost-penning songs for big hair aristocrats.
Now she lies in a plush, velvet bed,
Shaped like a coffin and filled with bats.
And she is pale and I am smitten
And in the moonlight we both still like
The smell of anything night blooming,
And she bites through the necks like Ginsu:
My sweet sweet heartkiller,
My sweet sweet heartkiller,
My sweet sweet heartkiller,
My sweet sweet heartkiller.

Next to walls that jut from the earth
Like frozen trajectories of superheroes,
We nibble and jest about things that drain and the taste of lust.
And she is over here
And I am over there
And the unlucky dark cloud is in the middle.
We like to time ourselves,
We like to watch ourselves,
And her winks cut through me like a Ginsu:
My sweet sweet heartkiller,
My sweet sweet heartkiller,
My sweet sweet heartkiller,
My sweet sweet heartkiller.

And everything's good
And everything's fine
And everything's bitter like sweet things should be,
When I'm sinking my teeth into her:
My sweet heartkiller,
My so sweet heartkiller,
My so sweet heartkiller,
My so sweet heartkiller,
My sweet sweet heartkiller.

    General Commentthey have some sort of wicked,hilariot,unhealthy obsession with vampires =P but i guess this is like tricking someone into getting what you want when tehy want it too...cause both were vampires and they both wanted blood but only one of them got that blood...or so thats what it says...

    General Commenti kind of figured that he fell in love with a vampire, and then the twist was that she 'sired' him, and now they can be the walking dead together forever :)
    romantic.

    General CommentYes, he falls in love with a vampire, so, in order for them to be together forever, she turns him into a vampire. Such a sweet song...a sweet sweet song, if I may be so bold to say so.

    General Comment"And everything's good
    and everything's fine
    and everything's bitter like sweet things should be, "
    I was thinking about this part, and I know a lot of their songs don't exactly have any deep segnifigant meanings, they're more like dreams, or abstract art. Anyways To me this phrase means that you're doing something you know isn't easy or enjoyable, but it's the right thing to do so on the inside you know you're doing good. As the example states, sweet things should be bitter. If sweet things were bitter people would eat less sweets because sweets should be eaten less. That was my take on it. In context of the song maybe this phrase is to mean that he's doing what seems difficult and uneasy, but it's for the best because he loves her. Just my take on it :)
