Cupid de Locke

(Alternate (early handwritten lyrics) title/lyrics for Cupid de Locke)

 

Alt. Lyrics

and in the land of forsaken lovers
and barren hearted wanderers
forever lost in forsaken missives
and satan's pull
we seek the unseekable
we speak of the unspeakable
charity
faith, compassion + love
thoughts gathering dust
life gathering rust
in faith, compassion + love

Alt. Titles/Lyrics

Cupid de Locke   (normal version)

  Normal Lyrics

cupid hath pulled back his sweetheart's bow
to cast divine arrows into her soul
to grab her attention swift and quick
or morrow the marrow of her bones be thick
with turpentine kisses and mistaken blows

see the devil may do as the devil may care
he loves none sweeter as sweeter the dare
her mouth the mischief he doth seek
her heart the captive of which he speaks
so note all ye lovers in love with the sound
your world be shattered with nary a note
of one cupids arrow under your coat

and in the land of star crossed lovers
and barren hearted wanderers
forever lost in forsaken missives and satan's pull
we seek the unseekable and we speak the unspeakable
our hopes dead gathering dust to dust
in faith, in compassion, and in love

 

Notes
