"Die With Me" as written by and Peter Thomas Steele....
Now like a bird
She flew away
To chase her dream
Of books and praise
Still I miss her
Yeah I miss her
Since she's gone

At JFK
Who played the fool?
Self pity sick
Jet fuel perfume
Still I miss her
Yeah I miss her
Since she's gone

Girl I want to die with you
In each other's arms
We'll drown in flame

If this time were the last time
Could I hold you all life long?
Since this time is the last time
Can I hold you all night long?

Lay your head down, for the last time

Hey KLM
AT+T
The UK post system
Do you still love me?
Still I miss her
Yeah I miss her
Since she's gone

    General Commenti love this song... so sad.. so melodic... so Type O Negative.

    the pure devotion in this song... he loves her and it shines through so perfectly.

    but like most women. she has dreams... and her "dreams of books and praise" cause her to have to depart.

    leaving poor peter all alone... he misses her so much and hes afraid that he wont see her again, that she will be gone from his life forever.

    hey klm
    at&t
    the uk post system
    do you still love me?

    she never came back (KLM Airlines), she never calls (AT&T), she never writes (the uk post system). she doesnt love him. and that kills him.

    General CommentIf Type O Negative is one of your favorite bands (and they are in my top 3), then you likely relate to the complex emotion of Steele's lyrics that often convey love, beauty, hatred, self-loathing, obsession and humor all within the same song.

    I think this song is the common emotion of "wishing the moment would never end", except Steele expresses this in the idea of "girl, I want to die with you"...the moment would never end because he'd die in her arms. Of course, that isn't what happens here, but Steele has away of making the idea of death romantic and sensual.

    In interpret the line "lay your head down for the last time" to relate to both a last night together and Steele's secret wish that they might die there together rather than be seperated.

    Also, there is no denying the AWESOME vocal performance during this line. Everytime Peter sings "lay" I get shivers. What an amazing vocal instrument that man has!

    General CommentThis song relates back to another song on October Rust, Love You to Death. Pete is a very sexual guy who does have a lot of encounters, and the entire album seems to be his way of dealing with maybe a one night stand or short but passionate relationship with a woman who wasn't serious about staying with him. A song of love and loss. One of the reasons I really relate to Pete and Type O. an unending tragedy that comsumes my life, the soundtrack provided by a man I have never met. Cool.

    General Comment It's about a woman who is a writer. She is about to leave him to go and follow her dreams. This is her last night with him.
