lyrics

take away this life from me
you can't stay with me
i can't live without you
i won't ever be complete
i admit defeat to everything about you

from the first time i laid eyes on you
i decided you were my kind
i knew my disguise could tie you inside of my
twisted rapture
you and i collide
and my uncountable years of hurt
were all worth the curse at first sight
like a true rebirth
and every church and cathedral crumbled
with the deepest rumble
and the evil unfolds

please put a stake through my heart
'cause i don't want my love to tear you apart
i held your doom from the start
you'll live forever with the wicked little curse of my mark

girl i'm afraid that you have to be my last tragedy
you'll be the last of me
i gotta say that we're past the peak
you gotta sharpen that steak 'cause i asked ya please

i was a king once, now i'm a slave
i was a great great man
now i sleep in a grave
there was a woman way back
long ago before you
please don't get mad 'cause you know i adore you
she tore through me with the curse of death
and left me like a dead man catchin' my breath
and i've slept through the day
ever since it was sealed
and if you stay i can promise you will never be healed

please put a stake through my heart
'cause i don't want my love to tear you apart
i held your doom from the start
you'll live forever with the wicked little curse of my mark

girl i'm afraid that you have to be my last tragedy
you'll be the last of me
i gotta say that we're past the peak
you gotta sharpen that steak 'cause i asked ya please

please put a stake through my heart
'cause i don't want my love to tear you apart
i held your doom from the start
you'll live forever with the wicked little curse of my mark
please put a stake through my heart
'cause i don't want my love to tear you apart
i held your doom from the start
you'll live forever with the wicked little curse of my mark

take away this life from me
you can't stay with me
i can't live without you
i won't ever be complete
i admit defeat to everything about you
