Creative Brief

I like to write a Halloween-inspired lyric every year. This is my 2019 offering. Perhaps a bit of an Alice Cooper influence here (?) but open to all interpretations!



Love's lost


(Verse 1)


If you go creeping in the fog at dead of night


It's strange how you'll have never felt so alive,


Graveyard kisses


Butterflies within you changed


Into dragon wings and fire that burned inside your veins


(Verse 2)


When you went trick or treating in a crime-filled neighbourhood


The hairs stood on your arms but it never felt so good,


Backyard embraces


Nothing could make you stop


Together, you and she would shake the world right up




But love's lost


On a cross


Crucified today,


Love's lost


Your trust


Murdered in the rain




Now you've hired a cabin in the woods


Though you knew that wasn't wise,


There's a chopping block


And an axe to chop


Under brooding skies.


A darkness has filled your blood


And you just want to hide,


You tell yourself that all's okay


But you know that you lied.


Halloween can make you scream


When ghosts are in your head


You stare in the cracked mirror


But the eyes you see are dead




Love's lost


On a cross


Crucified today,


Love's lost


Your trust


Butchered in the rain




Chop, chop


Cut it up


Throw the bits away


Chop, chop


Cut it out


Don’t need this heart today
