(Don't Fear) The Reaper Lyrics - Blue Oyster Cult

Review The Song (3)



All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
(We can be like they are)

Come on baby
(Don't fear the Reaper)
Baby take my hand
(Don't fear the Reaper)
We'll be able to fly
(Don't fear the Reaper)
Baby I'm your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone

Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity
(Romeo and Juliet)

40,000 men and women everyday
(Like Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday
(Redefine happiness)
Another 40,000 coming everyday
(We can be like they are)

Come on baby
(Don't fear the Reaper)
Baby take my hand
(Don't fear the Reaper)
We'll be able to fly
(Don't fear the Reaper)
Baby I'm your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew and then he appeared
(Saying don't be afraid)

Come on baby
(And she had no fear)
And she ran to him
(Then they started to fly)
They looked backward and said goodbye
(She had become like they are)
She had taken his hand
(She had become like they are)

Come on baby
(Don't fear the reaper)

I personally feel this song is about suicide. I mean, the name itself kind of implies it "don't fear the reaper" the mind of a person who would be willing to end their own life is a very deep, interesting thing and it makes for a good story, and in the end relates to all people, because we all die one day, and if there are people willing to walk gently into that goodnight, why should we bother fighting it? And the end of the song seems like an analogy for suicide, and the mention of romeo and juilet, as well as 'another 40,000 coming every day' which if I am correct was the number of people who killed themselves on a daily basis around the time this song as written (though that number has gone up a lot in recent years)

I am not the biggest fan of blue oyster cult, but i don't have to be to know this is one of the best songs ever written.

A great guitar and very clever and beautiful lyrics, for me one of the best songs of blue oyster cult that in my opinion should be more well know with songs like godzilla. I love this song

This song is a classic, I love it. Very psychedelic but I don't think I'd like it half as much without SNL's sketch
