lyrics

Let's build a castle, let's build a casket
And pretend
That we are young vampires doting on the moon
Let's hide beneath blankets and not look in mirrors
Cause we can't see ourselves
And hold back the sun cause dawn always comes too soon

The problem is, you are the daylight
And I live for the night
The sun is beautiful but it burns me
So I trail off behind, in the shadows of my mind,
And wait til you're out of sight

So you have a castle and I have a casket
Cause I'm a beast
And princes don't often mingle with vampires
To say the least
I am the shut in, you are free
You don't even like monsters like me
But look in my eyes, maybe you'll see

That you have always been the daylight
A dawning on my endless night
You, you're beautiful but you burn me
Oh please, oh please, oh please, don't you leave

Til death do us part, no
Death always comes too soon, so

Let's build a castle, let's build a casket
And pretend
That we are young lovers
To hold back the moon
To hell with the sun
Dawn's always too soon
I'll just say I love you and hope that you love me too
And hope that you love me too
