Can I really muster the courage to defy you and send you away?
Within my very being I know exactly what you
While you pursued me I feel in love with you, is this a card you played to ensure I would never stray?
I am not sure I have the courage to send you away.

Each night you visit me, but do I have the strength to say no?
When I attempt to do this I can't look into your eyes
If I do I will fall under your spell, then for sure I couldn't make you go
When it comes to you I am weak, but to make you go away I must try.

You have asked me to join you, but I don't want to reside within your domain
I just wonder how many you have killed to obtain their blood?
Do you feel remorse for the horrible things you must do?
But beneath this unholy thing, is just a man I feel in love with and by whose side I wish to remain.

I definitely know what you are, but because of my conscience I know what I must do
Somehow I know I must stop your bloody reign
I must eliminate you, but this is going to be so hard to do
I will release your soul so to goodness not evil you can forever reign.

As you have done every night, you come to visit me with no idea of what's in store
I look away from you as I pick up the wooden stake
I stab you in your heart, you fall to the floor and ask me why
You ask me," Was it so wrong of me to love you and of your presence just want more?"
I turn away not wanting you to see my tears as I know you die.
