Darkness is in Love With You (strings version)

Story Behind The Song

this song originally was recorded and conceived as a rock song. the recording and mix of the rock version ended earlier than anticipated and with the extra time a piano version was recorded, oddly, mostly in 7/4 time. strings were then added arranged and conducted by Alejandro Teran and now most people prefer this version to the rock version. i'm ok with that.

she shivers cold.
and even i can't reach her.
a shadow took hold.
but the sparkles still show.

darkness is in love with you
but i love you more.

it turns on like sin.
the seduction is piercing.
it shows on her skin.
and i can taste her bleeding.
