This is where the heart breaks
This is where the hero dies
This is where the dream fades, from black into a brilliant white
I thought you'd been blown away, but it seems you're back larger than life
If you dont change your wicked ways we'll take you down with fire

You creep into the mouths of men and break the lovers up
Once the devils in your skin she'll never give you up

Have mercy on us all
All the big and all the small
the pills you take dont do a thing so hunny take them all
All the southern boys will say to leave magnolias on her grave
That wont keep her away
Oh lord she'll never stay away
All the churches in New Orleans hurry their sermons to watch her dance
All the shadows of the fallen make their way in to this party
All the devils little children look to heaven for forgivness

All the churches in New Orleans hurry their sermons to watch her dance
She two steps on the bones and souls of angry lovers who never had a chance

    They are so good!

    The beginning music of this song is so eerie. I love it.

    I think the girl they are talkign about in this song is more a spirit than a person. Like the spirit of unbridled lust, passion basically.

    "You creep into the mouths of men and break the lovers up
    Once the devils in your skin she'll never give you up"

    Kind of how once lust hits guys, they can't help but do soemthign wrong.
    I don't know...just my take. if it made sense at all.

    General CommentOh I know, I love them, I was upset that no one had put any of their lyrics up. =D

    They are coming out with an EP that is gonna have five tracks on it, including this song, in the summer I think. I read an article about them online. This song along with the others that will be on the EP are about ghosts and such.

    “It’s a Cajun-French story about this ghost or apparition. The little creature can shape-shift and preys on young men. The lyrics to that song are about this little shape-shifting creature that turns into a female and preys on the lust of young men and distracts them from their goals. I could paint this perfect picture in my head from the story.”
    -That's what the article said.

    I can't wait for it to come out!

    General CommentI love Oh, Juliet! amazing, amazing band.
    I always thought it was about a women who flirts with men and makes their other relationships fall apart.
    I LOVE the 'all the churches in new orleans hurry their sermons to watch her dance.'
