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

 


(Chorus)

 

But love's lost

 

On a cross

 

Crucified today,

 

Love's lost

 

Your trust

 

Murdered in the rain

 


(Bridge)

 

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

 


(Chorus)

 

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
