"Nosferatu" as written by Dickon James Hinchliffe, David Leonard Boulter, Stuart Ashton Staples, Neil Joseph Steven Fraser, Mark Anthony Stephen Colwill and Alistair Macaulay....
Deep in the heart of Germany
Lucy clutched her breast in fear
She heard the beat of her lover's heart
For weeks she raved in dreams he appeared
From far Transylvania

Only a woman can break his spell
Pure in heart who will offer herself
To Nosferatu

This ship pulled in without a sound
The faithful captain long since cold
He kept his log till the bloody end
Last entry read "Rats in the hold.
My crew is dead, I fear the plague"

Only a woman can break his spell
Pure in heart who will offer hefself
To Nosferatu

Mortal terror reigned
Sickness now then horrible death
Only Lucy knew the truth
And at her window
Nosferatu

So chaste so calm, she gave herself
To the pleasure of her dreaded master
He sucked the precious drops of life
Throughout the long and cold dark night

One last goodbye, he was blinded by love
One last goodbye, he was blinded by love
Blinded by love

He screamed with fear, he'd stayed too long in her room
The morning sun had come too soon
The spell was broken with a kiss of doom
He vanished into dust, left her all alone

Only a woman can break his spell
Pure in heart, who will offer herself
To Nosferatu

    General CommentThe title says it all. The lyrics basically restate the plot and summary of the second half of "Nosferatu," one of the greatest films ever made.

    General CommentGreat movie, and great account of the story in song form. I especially love this verse:

    This ship pulled in without a sound
    The faithful captain long since cold
    He kept his log till the bloody end
    Last entry read "Rats in the hold.
    My crew is dead, I fear the plague"

    General CommentSeveral BOC songs refer to vampires. "Nosferatu" is a re-working of Bram Stoker's "Dracula". In the original silent version of Nosferatu, the captain's log can be seen to include the lines "Rats in the hold. My crew is dead. I fear the plague", and the line "Only a woman can break his spell, pure in heart who will offer her blood" - these lines are used in the song.
