Song Lyrics #22 Bloodletting

by - October 27, 2019

 

This week I'm looking at Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) by Concrete Blonde. I mean, it's almost Halloween, right? Is there seriously a better song for this time of year? So... this song is a trip. Love the lyrics and the tune. And it's atmospheric as well, with the bell tolling and the thunder.          

So what do you think?   

Lyrics

There's a crack in the mirror 
And a bloodstain on the bed 
There's a crack in the mirror
And a bloodstain on the bed

Oh, you were a vampire 
And baby, I'm the walking dead 
Oh, you were a vampire 
And baby, I'm the walking dead 

I got the ways and means 
to New Orleans 
I'm going down by the river 
Where it's warm and green 
I'm gonna have a drink and walk around 
I got a lot to think about 

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

There's a rocking chair by the window
Down the hall 
I hear something there in the shadow 
Down the hall 

Oh, you were a vampire
And now I'm nothing at all 
Oh, you were a vampire
And now I am nothing at all 

I got the ways and means 
to New Orleans
I'm going down by the river
Where it's warm and green 
I'm gonna have a drink and walk around 
I got a lot to think about 

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

They used to dance in the garden
In the middle of the night 
Dancing out in the garden 
In the middle of the night 

Oh, you were a vampire
And I may never see the light 
Oh, you were a vampire 
And I may never see the light 

I got the ways and means 
to New Orleans 
I'm going down by the river
Where it's warm and green
I'm gonna have a drink and walk around
I got a lot to think about 

I got the ways and means 
to New Orleans 
I'm going down by the river 
Where it's warm and green
I'm gonna have a drink and walk around 
I got a lot to think about 

Oh yeah
Oh yeah 
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
