I know I am a monster
Just a mess of dead things all stitched together
So you probably should not see me
For I have spent all my life in this laboratory

A grave robber gave me my heart
& a grave robber gave me my art
But my love comes from him above
Could that ever be enough?

Save the runaways
God save the runaways
God save the runaways
The Bride Of Frankenstein is on her own

Save the runaways
God save the runaways
God save the runaways
The Bride Of Frankenstein has never known

She's a monster too
I never had the heart to tell you
In the basement where we took an oath
In the basement where his record collection
Invented us both

Now save the runaways
God save the runaways
God save the runaways
The Bride Of Frankenstein is on her own

Save the runaways
God save the runaways
God save the runaways
The Bride Of Frankenstein is

All dressed up with nowhere to go
All messed up with nowhere to go
You see, all the things that came apart in my hands
Came apart in my hands
All the things that came apart in my head
Came apart in my hands
But these are not my hands!

I know that we are monsters
He designed just to remind us of our failures
But only the blue in the blueprint was true
I was created to be with you

Save the runaways
God save the runaways
God save the runaways
The Bride Of Frankenstein is on her own

Save the runaways
God save the runaways
God save the runaways
'Cause nothing we do is gonna bring us back to life

Nothing's gonna bring us back to life
Nothing's gonna bring us back to life
But that blue blue lightning
That blue blue lightning
That blue blue blue blue blue...

Give up the ghost!

    General CommentI think I made a boo-boo. I love this song & I am listening to it constantly, so I think the second half of the first chorus should be:

    ...Save the runaways
    God save the runaways
    God save the runaways
    *The Bride Of Frankenstein has never known*

    She's a monster too...

    My bad.
