I fell in love at second sight
At the end of the night
I told you “You’re beautiful.”
Yeah, I wanted to

Days are getting colder, felt the winter strangle the fall
Your birthday then Christmas, another year has come and gone

Then it was spring and I couldn’t wait to take you out dancing
The sickness, the darkness consumed my forsaken soul
Then it was June, but you weren’t around, I wanted to find you

You told me not to look so damn hard, but I did

Like you right from the start
Your baby teeth just chewing and gnawing my heart
Just wouldn’t let it go
I didn’t want you to

I shrugged off my armor, my weapons, and denounced my faith
I’m coming to get you, God be damned if he gets in my way

Cause if he does, I’ll cut him in thirds
I’ll cough up a prayer for him
My blood damns you Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost
Then I’ll wage war against anyone that dares to stop me from
I’ll find you, I’ll rescue you from the light my love

Feel the heat of their blood on the side of my throat
I can’t get their taste off my tongue
I chewed through the bones, killed their kids, burned their homes
I felt their sharp soot in my lungs

But you told me “No,” you left me because you just couldn’t love me.
But baby, its too late; they’re all dead. What the hell did I do?
What if you stayed? What if you did? What if you wanted to?
I’m sorry I loved you, it’s all I think about.
