The Passion of Lovers

I always loved this song, especially the line “she gets the better of the bigger to the letter”, which rolls off Peters tongue like liquid mercury.

She breaks her heart
Just a little too much
And her jokes attract the lucky bad type
As she dips and wails
And slips her banshee smile
She gets the better of the bigger to the letter

The passion of lovers is for death, said she
The passion of lovers is for death

Peter Murphy, The Passion of Lovers
