Snake & Feather: Party Time

Promotional Flyer Time!

A popular song played repeatedly on the Underground Network radio, The Song of Dear Dead Daphne (re-released as Sweet Necrophiliac’s Sweetheart) made the Top 10 in 1989 and was written and performed by the lead singer of the popular banshee band, Crowblack.

Lead singer River O’Dare says that she was inspired by a ballad of the same name penned anonymously around 1763. It has been covered three times since then.

The first cover was a rock version in 1994 by Scottish Widows, followed by an acoustic version in 1999 by the one-hit wonder Jeni A. Most recently, an upbeat pop version has been released by the vampire girl band Lady Killerz.

This version is released on the new album ‘Crowblack’s Greatest Hits’ , which is available to buy only from Uncharted Vinyls on Boxley Road, but if you head down to the Snake and Feather pub on Regan Street, you may be able to take advantage of their promotion (for a limited time only!).

Sweet Necrophiliac’s Sweetheart

Official Lyrics

VERSE 1

The darkness hides me; I’m all alone

There’s no one to find me and there’s no way home

I pretend I’m a dancer and the birds are my band

I cry at the lie but there’s no friendly hand

To dry my tears…

CHORUS

And I’m tired of being on my own all the time,

It gets lonely when there’s only

A tomb to call mine

I want to be with someone, wouldn’t mind if it’s you –

I want to be a sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart,

Want to feel a warm embrace again,

Sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart,

Keep me safe from the rain…

Safe from the pain –

VERSE 2

I walk through a churchyard, the crows fly around,

They tear me up in pieces but I won’t lie down,

I dream their feathers warm my fingers,

I dream their beaks draw my blood;

But nothing could…

CHORUS

And I’m tired of being on my own all the time,

It gets lonely when there’s only

A tomb to call mine

I want to be with someone, wouldn’t mind if it’s you –

I want to be a sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart,

Want to feel a warm embrace again,

Sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart,

Keep me safe from the rain…

Safe from the pain –

BRIDGE

Candle, book and big black bell

Make you mine in the midnight spell

Owls screech loud and the thunder rolls

And the bell tolls my death knell –

CHORUS

And I’m tired of being on my own all the time,

It gets lonely when there’s only

A tomb to call mine

I want to be with someone, wouldn’t mind if it’s you –

I want to be a sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart,

Want to feel a warm embrace again,

Sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart,

Keep me safe from the rain…

Make me a sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart

Make me feel a warm embrace again,

Sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart,

With you I wouldn’t fear the rain

Sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart

All I want is a warm embrace again

Sweet necrophiliac’s sweetheart

Fan the flame, the flame, the flame

Keep me safe from the rain
