"Wicked Blood" as written by and Alex Brown Church....
We met in the east
Poured in like a flood
You're the whispering kind
Dark sapphire blood
You're a vision of veils
All shimmery white
Like a backdrop of sails
All aglow from the light
Of the wonder behind
At a starry night

In the mountain's song
In the blue jay's call
My heartbeat flows
In crystal water falls
You were so beautiful
In your elegant bed
You'd have my blues
For your Nantucket reds
I'd wait in the dark
Balanced on a thread
So I'd wait in the dark
Balanced on this thread

And under the church-light
You stand there
With your wicked blood and your curls
Yeah, under the church-light
You stand there
In your fur and your pearls
These lines were here
Long before we came around
Yeah, these lines were here
And there's an ember in the rafters
And it's going to bring this whole thing down

In the neon mist
I heard you breathe
An exquisite sound
Some secret symphony
Your silken skin
My fingers rough
In the midnight dim
We went home and touched
Beneath the chandeliers
And your Persian's dust
Beneath your chandeliers
And your Persian's dust

And under the church-light
You stand there
With your wicked blood and your curls
Yeah, under the church-light
You stand there
In your fur and your pearls
These lines were here
Long before we came around
Yeah, these lines were here
And there's an ember in the rafters
And it's going to bring this whole thing down

    Song MeaningHoly god this song is amazing. Kind of obsessed with Sea Wolf right now.

    Church says here: youtube.com/…

    that the song is about being a working class dude from the west coast, moving to the east coast and having an affair with an upper class woman there.

    General CommentI love the bejesus out of this song, just because of the vibrant and lush sound to it. However, I'm definitely having a lot of difficulty understanding what exactly this song is about.

    From what I can tell it seems that this song is about a sort of destructive or forbidden relationship. It seems like the person in the song is saying that he's really sort of enraptured by this woman who he knows will be, well, destructive. Anyone else have a better idea what this song is about?
