Sebadoh — Vampire lyrics

Try to keep her down beside, but last night I set her free
Free to let her spirit fly, left my choking stare behind
Maybe if her will could grow, she might feel the need to leave
Dying in my shadow, doubting I could ever let her be herself
A sinful reflection of me, will I ever set her free?
My love has shut her up, break the spirit I don't understand
‘'cause even as we're walking hand in hand, my life cuts her up
An evil way to build me strong, a sad judge and so uptight
It's too bad I'm so hung up
I ask a simple question when I know the answer right
I ask me if I love her as I tell her it's all right
But nothing in my life would fit, I turned into an idiot
Vampire, draining her desire
Vampire, smother her with love
When nothing in her life would fit she came upon an idiot
