Salute The Sanguine Lyrics – VV (Ville Valo)

Death come blow me a kiss through this cathedral of cards
Remind me how to decrypt the cypher written in the blood of my heart

Salute the sanguine
Red in tooth and claw it has to feel
Salute the sanguine
Ferociously beautiful you are

Love your lips move, but I can’t hear you sing in my citadel of scars
The ghost of you shimmers within, revealing what is lost

Salute the sanguine
Red in tooth and claw it has to feel
Salute the sanguine
Ferociously beautiful you are

Here come the tears
Along with terms of endearment distorted by fear
So sincere it hurts

Salute the sanguine, sanguine
I’m screaming your name
Salute the sanguine, sanguine
No heart bleeds in vain

I salute the sanguine (I salute the sanguine)
I salute the sanguine (I salute the sanguine)
Hear me scream your name again and again
Come salute the sanguine (Come salute the sanguine)
Come salute the sanguine (Come salute the sanguine)
All hearts kneel before your grace

Dreams in black and blue
Heartbeats a morse of doom
Spectral I love you’s
We bloom in gloom

Morning’s scarlet hues
All tomorrows entombed
Desire’s cruelest tunes
We bloom in gloom
