A Journalist Falls in Love with Death Row Inmate

This song is by Margot & The Nuclear So And So's and appears on the album Rot Gut, Domestic (2012).

I was writing his story
And he gave me a look
He was very handsome, distractingly so
And I never dreamed that he'd be my boyfriend
He wrote me letters, daily from prison
That said I know I've killed a few
But none of those women were you
I couldn't speak
It was over for me
I found my grim reaper prince

Well he said he loved me
And he cooked me dinner
He cut my lungs out
And made me feel thinner
And I'll never forget him
Now that it's over
The life that we had
When they strapped him down
Oh but how all the girls were jealous
'Cause he liked me the best
Oh and I couldn't breathe
It was true love indeed
But now my grim prince is gone

Well I said I loved him
When they strapped him in
But he wasn't cryin'
He took it like a man
And the families watched him
As he breathed his last
But I got rather angry
I started to laugh
And say now he's got what's comin'
He was due his lot
Oh and I couldn't see, there were tears on my cheek
Goodbye my grim reaper prince
Goodbye my grim reaper prince
Goodbye goodbye
I'll see you in a while
Fair well
Good luck
