Sometimes I thought about writing a whole theater production or musical, as I imagine music and lyrics so much, but until I learn how to play music without playing by ear I fear this is a dream doomed to never become reality.
This song below is something I’ve planned on doing as a musical; it’s about vampires and every paragraph skips back and forth between two characters, a vampire lady and the son of a pastor.
Originally when writing this song I thought it was going to become the love of an angel and a demon, fighting each other but then falling madly and deeply in love with each other, but as all you other writers out there knows; your work dictates to you, you don’t dictate to it, and so as it flowed on it became vampiric, not a struggle between good and evil like first planned.
Hope you enjoy it – remember it’s to be sung, not read as poetry, but I don’t expect you to know the tune it’s supposed to be sang to. In all honesty, it was supposed to be a poem too, but it never turned out that way, I got something at the back of my head as background music which resembled something Manowar would have.
There fire in my soul, there’s a fire in my heart tonight
Tonight, there’s a place where the darkness fights the light
Tonight, tonight, our love is a place that beckons for a fight
With you in my arms, I feel your charms
Happy with me, you’re restless without me
You’re an angel faced fool
I’ve watched how you’ve drooled
As I shimmy around the nightclub
Tooled by my quest to capture you
You’re easy prey
The devil said it and now I say it too
You’re easy prey
A purity installed heart, I’ll tear you apart
Hear what I say
I am bad for you, oh guess what I’m gonna do
I’ll lead you astray
To a place you’ve never dreamed
I will do it this way
Make your heart mine and on a feast of blood I’ll dine
And take your bouquet
And lay it across your coffin
Knowing you’ll be mine forever
I lay in confusion, wondering what happened
I feel very different, where am I?
You are with me, my sweet little angel
I have given you a gift
You and I are children of the night, dear
We are vampires, in case it isn’t clear
Please, have no fear
This can’t be true, I refuse to believe it
Let me out of this place, your lies are a disgrace
Listen to me, it is the truth
A mirror will prove it
Don’t be so uncouth
I don’t believe it
I see no reflection
It’s true, now that you’ve seen it
You know that forever you’ll have youth
These are the trials and tribulations of creating new, excitations
How do you view my revelations?
Do you want this too?
Do you want to be renewed?
Vampires of the night we are
Fashioned by hunger
Our sun is millions of stars
Take my hand and become like us
All it takes is two scars
