Lyrics

Verse
When the sun went down on Halloween
My true love gave to me
the only key to her heart and soul
for all eternity

Verse
When the spirits rose on Halloween
my true love gave to me
the moon and stars in a silver bowl
the only key to her heart and soul
for all eternity

Chorus

13 hours 'til my baby comes home to me
13 hours 'til my baby comes to set me free
in 13 hours we'll be knockin' down that door
13 hours 'til forevermore
13 hours 'til my baby comes home to me

Verse
When the Gargoyle grinned on Halloween
my true love gave to me
a noose hanging high in a dead oak tree
a shrunken head, that's sill alive
blood red honey from a killer bee hive,
A voodoo doll with extra pins
Total Absolution of all my sins
the moon and stars in a silver bowl
the only key to her heart and soul
for all eternity

Verse
When the Banshee screamed on Halloween
my true love gave to me
an incantation to make me rich
the kiss of death from a wicked witch.
a noose hanging high in a dead oak tree
a shrunken head, that's still alive
blood red honey from a killer bee hive,
A voodoo doll with extra pins
Total Absolution of all my sins
the moon and stars in a silver bowl
the only key to her heart and soul
for all eternity

Chorus
Verse
(Spoken) When the death knell tolls this fateful night
in the breaking point between dark and light
my only dream is to be with you;
make this one miracle finally come true:
(Singing) a jeweled keepsake from the moment of truth
a flask of water from the fountain of youth
an incantation to make me rich,
the kiss of death from a wicked witch.
a noose hanging high in a dead oak tree
a shrunken head, that's still alive
blood red honey from a killer bee hive,
A voodoo doll with extra pins
Total Absolution of all my sins
the moon and stars in a silver bowl
the only key to her heart and soul
for all eternity
