Love Song for a Vampire – Annie Lennox

A friend who was in the scene years ago said it used to be popular to play Enya while playing. Enya, whose work I do like, seems like an odd choice for scenes, but it made me think of Annie Lennox’s ‘Love Song for a Vampire’, which she wrote for Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula.

I’m not sure how it would be for a scene, but it would be nice for aftercare. Snuggled up with a big, scary D-type.

‘Love Song for a Vampire’

Come into these arms again
And lay your body down
The rhythm of this trembling heart
Is beating like a drum

It beats for you – It bleeds for you
It knows not how it sounds
For it is the drum of drums
It is the song of songs…

Once I had the rarest rose
That ever deigned to bloom.
Cruel winter chilled the bud
And stole my flower too soon.

Oh loneliness – oh hopelessness
To search the ends of time
For there is in all the world
No greater love than mine.

Love, oh love, oh love…
Still falls the rain… (still falls the rain)
Love, oh love, oh, love…
Still falls the night…
Love, oh love, oh love…
Be mine forever…. (be mine forever)
Love, oh love, oh love….

Let me be the only one
To keep you from the cold
Now the floor of heaven’s lain
With stars of brightest gold

They shine for you – they shine for you
They burn for all to see
Come into these arms again
And set this spirit free
