Venus In Furs
Christian Death Lyrics


Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather.
Whiplash girl, child in the dark.
Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him.
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart.

Downy sins of streetlight fancies.
Chase the costumes she shall wear.
Ermine furs adorn the imperious.
Severin', Severin' awaits you there.
I am tired, I am weary;
I could sleep for a thousand years.
A thousand dreams that would awake me.
Different colors, made of tears.

Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather;
Shiny leather in the dark.
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you.
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart.

Severin', Severin', speak so slightly.
Severin', down on your bended knee.
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly.
Taste the whip, now plead for me.

I am tired, I am weary;
I could sleep for a thousand years.
A thousand dreams that would awake me.
Different colors, made of tears.

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather.
Whiplash girl, child in the dark.
Severin', your servant comes in bells, please don't forsake him.
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart.

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather.
Whiplash girl, child in the dark.
Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him.
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart.

Downy sins of streetlight fancies.
Chase the costumes she shall wear.
Ermine furs adorn the imperious.
Severin', Severin' awaits you there.

I am tired, I am weary;
I could sleep for a thousand years.
A thousand dreams that would awake me.
Different colors, made of tears.

Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather;
Shiny leather in the dark.
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you.
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart.

Severin', Severin', speak so slightly.
Severin', down on your bended knee.
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly.
Taste the whip, now plead for me.

I am tired, I am weary;
I could sleep for a thousand years.
A thousand dreams that would awake me.
Different colors, made of tears.

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather.
Whiplash girl, child in the dark.
Severin', your servant comes in bells, please don't forsake him.
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart.

Severin is the name of the main character in the original book, no reason to place an apostrophe after it.

Paula Pierrot

The original song is already great but Rozz' voice makes it a lot darker and sexier at the same time. Awesome!

Genaro Herrera

Great!

Ana Glaucia Sousa Pereira

Rozzy williams era um poeta e um genio.. Amava T.Rex.. Roxy Music.. Lou Reed.. Iggy Pop.. Alice cooper e acima de tudo David Bowie!

Awsome

badhras

This really is the best goth rendition of this song.

E Stromberg

@Ghostlight X That feeling when you're simultaneously able to be proto-punk and post-punk
