Dark Allies
Light Asylum Lyrics


Nail me to the cross in the darkest alley
I said, the Prince of Peace doesn't have to know about it
Say three Hail Marys, turn around, pray about it
Come on, nail me to the cross in the darkest alley

Heartbeats through the dark that spread like a poison
And the tears ran hot like black tar of emotion
Inherit the earth where no words are spoken
And the sky like a veil was our wounds torn open

As she lies dying in a dark alleyway
Her lips, ruby red
And her eyes were morning green
But she whispered to me "Come closer, come closer"
And as I knelt down beside with her dying breath
She said to me "I'll wait for you, forever and ever, and ever, and ever"

Come on, nail me to the cross in the darkest alley
I said, the Prince of Peace doesn't have to know about it
Aw, say three Hail Marys, turn around, pray about it
Aw, come on, nail me to the cross in the darkest alley

Heroine
She's my heroine
She's my, she's my heroine
She's my heroine

And I was crying Hail Mary
God, I scream Hail Mary
On my knees I cry Hail Mary
Oh Lord, I scream Hail Mary

On my knees I scream Hail Mary

Hail Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary
Hail Mary
Marry me, marry me, marry me, marry me
Marry me, marry me, marry me, marry me
Marry me, marry me, marry me, marry me
Marry me, marry me

Her voice, oh God her voice! That primal scream at the end. When I first heard this a couple of years ago I remember thinking "at long last, someone has revived Goth/Darkwave sound of old and has done it even better than before."

talktal

mix of 80s death rock and synthpop.  sounds like something out of an 80s goth club
