Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Black Dahlia

This song was created for Game of Bands round 255 : "Halloween VI"

Lyrics:

Thank you to ripinpeacemylastacnt for the guitar.

You were meant for greater
Than a silver screen could give
You were deserving of an infamy
You could never outlive

To you I gave a pedestal
A stage for all the world to see
To you I gave a winning smile
Meant for only me

They call you the Black Dahlia
A dark, alluring fever dream
A secret no one whispers
A drowning, decadent mystery

I couldn’t take the whole of you
I could only take the pieces
Delicate and so haunting pale
Impossible to resist

Such beauty on the outside
I had to know what lay within
Would it be delicate and fragile
Would it be shadow and sin

They call you the Black Dahlia
A dark, alluring fever dream
A secret no one whispers
A drowning, decadent mystery

I gave away what I couldn’t keep
Spun the letters of your memory
Laid you down for all to see
Kept all I could for only me
Only me
Only me
[Exit]
