Plucking the String

Date: January 31, 2005
Genre: sweetly psychotic


       
I've always loved obsessive love songs.  Especially the ones that people mistake for... "healthy" ones.  Well, I doubt that mistake will be made here, but... hey, it still turned out well.  I'm very proud, so neener.
        This was an experiment in recording lyrics before music... of course the music took on a life of its own, so I had to go back and re-record the lyrics, but it all just worked, so no problem.  The guitar and my voice were both through a relatively clean amp with some fun reverb, which surprised me in a good way.  Whee.


Lyrics
My love
You never answer
But I know you're home

I'm looking through the window now
And I know you're there

My love
I hear you screaming
You don't want me here

But I know that deep inside
Your devotion lies

Lean back from shattered grace
I will not lay a scar
Upon that face

Don't touch the knife upon the drawer
Or you shall breathe
Nevermore

Know that you belong to me
And as such you will be free
In the ritual of blood

Don't you understand the depths
Of love I have for only you

My love
My love

My love
You never answer
But I know you're home

I'm looking through the window now
And I've seen you there

My love
Your blood is the color
Of all my dreams

I'm make sure you never leave
I'll keep you deep inside

My love
My love
