When you feel safe
When you feel warm
That's when I rise
That's when I crawl

Gliding on mist
Hardly a sound
Bring the kiss
Evils abound

In the dead of night love bites

Into your room
Where in deep sleep
There you lie still
To you I creep

Then I descend
Close to your lips
Across you I bend
You smile as I sip

Now you are mine
In my control
One taste of your life
And I own your soul

Softly you stir
Gently you moan
Lust's in the air
Wake as I groan

In the dead of night love bites

Love bites you
Invites you
To feast in the night
Excites you
Delights you
It drains you to white
Love bites

You knew at first sight
You'd enjoy my attack
That with my first bite
There'd be no turning back

So come in my arms
I strike any hour
I will return
To trap and devour

In the dead of night love bites

    General CommentGreat song! Bit creepy though! Knowing Rob it's probably a meataphorical thing for a totally harmless topic but i can't help thinking that the lyrics are a bit creepy1 Sneaking into someone's room when they're asleep is a bit creepy!

    General CommentWhen I heard this song, the first thing I thought about was vampires. I still think it's about vampires. It was funny when I first got the book Twilight. I read it while having my iPod on shuffle, and guess what song kept popping up? "Love Bites." :]
