Love Song for a Vampire

Come into these arms again/ And set this spirit free

Annie Lennox (Aberdeen, Escòcia, 25 de desembre de 1954) és una cantant, compositora i activista coneguda per haver format, durant els anys vuitanta, el duet Eurythmics amb David A. Stewart. Un cop aquest projecte va arribar al seu final, Lennox va seguir amb la seva carrera en solitari. D’aquesta etapa és Love Song for a Vampire (Cançó d’amor per a un vampir), que va escriure per a la banda sonora de l’adaptació cinematogràfica que va fer Francis Ford Coppola de Dràcula, de Bram Stoker, l’any 1992.


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 sound
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
