Inspired by the Nick Cave featuring Kylie Minogue track,
Where The Wild Roses Grow From Murder Ballads.
On Valentine’s Day, I offer up my heart
Swearing to you, that we’ll never part
Rejected, belittled, I feel such a fool
While all of this time, you play it so cool
You deem me not worthy of love or respect?
Then you haven’t seen the worst of me yet
I’ll show you’re so wrong to treat me this way
There’s a darkness within, born of this day
You fanned the flames of the fire inside
And for your rejection, I’ll put you in line
Restraining sweet rage and biding my time
Take bloody revenge, My Bloody Valentine
See you stole my heart, returning the favour
All my nefarious planning I’ll savour
I’ll cut and you’ll bleed as you won’t be mine
And drink deeply of you, My Bloody Valentine
On a long leather strap, I hone my bright new friend
And I use her to slash you again and again
She sings a sweet song with each cut I inflict
And drips a deep red, caressed by my lips
Stripping you naked, but I’ll spare your blushes
Down by the riverside, deep in the rushes
Over your cold dead eyes and a body that’s bloating
Stood sanguine and bloody, on my victory, gloating
If you could look up from your watery grave
Then you’d see that piece that I hacked out to save
To keep close at hand, now we’re always together
No other shall know and you’ll be mine forever
I’ll have you again, oh some many times
For you cannot deny me, My Bloody Valentine
