If I Was Your Vampire Lyrics - Marilyn Manson

Review The Song (21)



6 a.m. Christmas morning
No shadows
No reflections here
Lying cheek to cheek
In your cold embrace

So soft and so tragic
As a slaughterhouse
You press the knife
Against your heart
And say,
"I love you, so much you must kill me now"

I love you
So much you must kill me now

If I was your vampire
Certain as the moon
Instead of killing time
We'll have each other
Until the sun
If I was your vampire
Death waits for no one
Hold my hands
Across your face
Because I think
Our time has come

Digging your smile apart
With my spade tongue
The hole is where the heart is
We built this tomb together
And I won't fill it alone

Beyond the pale
Everything is black
No turning back

If I was your vampire
Certain as the moon
Instead of killing time
We'll have each other
Until the sun
If I was your vampire
Death waits for no one
Hold my hands
Across your face
Because I think
Our time has come

Blood-stained sheets
In the shape of your heart
This is where it starts...
Blood-stained sheets
In the shape of your heart
This is where it starts
This is where it will end
Here comes the moon again

6:19 and I know I'm ready
Drive me off the mountain
You'll burn
I'll eat your ashes
The impossible we're seducing
Our corpse

If I was your vampire
Certain as the moon
Instead of killing time
We'll have each other
Until the sun
If I was your vampire
Death waits for no one
Hold my hands
Across your face
Because I think
Our time has come

Beyond the pale
Everything is black
No turning back
Beyond the pale
Everything is black
No turning back

This is where it starts
This is where it will end
Here comes the moon again

This is where it starts
This is where it will end
Here comes the moon again

Here comes the moon again

Here comes the moon again

When I listen this song i wish to die because it is the right(est) moment for it, about which so spoke zaratrusta (quick death) death is a drug for me it takes my life and I am alive once more

Deeper song meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/22/11

For those of you who have been attributing this song to some kind of a vampire love story, I'd advice you do a little bit of research into the song next time. While that is the story the song is narrating, that isn't the deeper story nor meaning.

This song is written because a friend of Manson asked him to stab her so that she may die with him or something along those lines, hence the lines "You press the knife against your heart and say, "I love you, so much you must kill me now""

I really love this song,and MM. | Reviewer: Ashley | 2/8/11

I love this song.I think that the meaning of it is,there's a vampire dude that has a human girlfriend.Cliche,right?But anyway,so the girl wants to be a vampire,so the dude proceeds to make her so.And now the girl is happy.In the last lines,(The part about the ashes and stuff),she's getting tired of being a vampire,so she asks her bf to burn her in the sun.And he does,but to make sure she doesn't come back,he eats her ashes.

great song! | Reviewer: penisface | 4/9/10

I don't think people have the right to be hating Eat Me, Drink Me and The High End of Low. It's a return to the great sound from Mechanical Animals and personally, I like it. He is not dying or losing his touch, merely allowing his music to evolve into different forms and he effectively does this, making him the God of Fuck and a master at writing a variety of great music.

i love marilyne | Reviewer: arash | 3/12/09

i come frome a country that maybre people dont like it!i come frome iran!but i love marilyne ,manson and his songs and the people who dont like marilyne can go to the hell.he is fantastic.i know a lot of his songs.his last album is blow my mind.enjoy marilyne manson.

manson rocks ! | Reviewer: will | 2/21/09

manson has such a great way with words his music ecspresses his feeling he isnt afraid to say what he thinks and he goes throught shit with people who hate him why cant people accept him and the way he is. sick song and twlight is an amazing movie.

Eh. It's Okay. | Reviewer: PrettyDarkLady | 12/18/08

It's True, it's a beautiful Dark Love Song.

But I wouldn't say it's one of his greatest.
The CD is just not what I'm used to from Mr. Manson...

I Really Love His Earlier Works.
How He Rammed Freedom of Speech down the throats of so many..


Mr. Manson is Beautiful, Idol-esque, and Overall Amazing. I Hope His Next Album is Better.

hmmmm..... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/25/08

I think this song is the bestof his new album. But I'm not sure how Ifeel about the direction he is taking in relation to his music. The controversiality of his old songs like "Fight song" and "1996" is gone...... but I still think of Manson as a fucking idol..... I love him!!!!

Intriguing | Reviewer: Caitlin Burnett | 1/7/08

I like this song alot, but am not entirely convinced on his new style of music. I understand that it was all influenced by his marriage to Dita Von Teese collapsing.. But such is life; i miss his older, more hatefilled style. In an interview he said he felt that to be eaten by the one he loved to be the most desirable and beautiful act he could think of (hence the "eat me, drink me") and i suppose the lyrics of this song also portray this idea well. Enough ramble from me. Enjoy the album guys.

GREAT!!! | Reviewer: convallaria | 10/25/07

I wish this song was written for me :)I never be bored of listening Marilyn Manson's songs.I'm addicted them and him.

This is my song | Reviewer: Nichole | 8/23/07

this song practically describes me it's kinda weird but fucking awesome at the sam damn time this is one of thoughs songs that ypu can listen to over and over agian and never get tired of if you ask meh

AMAZING! | Reviewer: Bitch!!! | 8/13/07

Ahhh, does anyone else read the "Twilight", "New Moon," and "Eclipse" series?!? If so, this song is highly significant to you! Haha, I absolutely love this song! If you love the song, but haven't read those books, I suggest it! Its the song quite literally but done in a deeply, and surprisingly not cheesy, way!!

CHECK IT OUT!!!

New song, the best song | Reviewer: Doris | 8/11/07

This is the first Manson's album I hear (all complete), but I think, the best, so worked, genious, as you've said... but more than that, I can't feel all the meaning of this song, yet

Mindblowing //_+ | Reviewer: Toni | 7/18/07

Amazing. I'm new to his works, but Manson has yet to disappoint me. Unique, Brilliant, Exactly what I need. Rock On Mr. Manson. hXc

A Good Song | Reviewer: Nick | 7/12/07

If I Was Your Vampire is easily the best song off the new album, but in no way is it the best song he's ever made. I found Eat Me, Drink Me fairly average in comparison to his older music. But that's just me I guess.
