Song Of The Week: “Love Song For A Vampire” – Annie Lennox

    “Love Song for a Vampire”

    (Annie Lennox)

    Still falls the rain

    Still falls the night

    Be mine forever

    Longing for a much desired embrace with the loved one often goes with trepidation: “Come into these arms again and lay your body down; the rhythm of this trembling heart is beating like a drum”. And when painful echoes of a lost relationship come back to heart and soul, it’s hard to believe in a newborn romance: “Once I had the rarest rose that ever deigned to bloom; cruel winter chilled the bud and stole my flower too soon”.

    But a never ending love, one that holds on through time, space and sorrow, can’t be erased easily; even if it’s a fatal one: “Let me be the only one to keep you from the cold; now the floor of heaven is laid with stars of brightest gold; they shine for you, they shine for you, they burn for all to see”.

    “Love Song for a Vampire” was composed and performed by Annie Lennox as the theme for Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), starring Gary Oldman and Wynona Rider as Count Dracula and Mina Harker.
