The Man Who Swallowed My Soul

This song is by Persephone and appears on the album Home (2002).

He looked like a young man,
But his eyes were old.
He touched me gently,
But his hands were cold.
My hands are cold.

His voice was calm,
But he was hunting for prey.
I started feeling dizzy,
And he watched me sway.
I watched you sway.

He stared at me with eyes black as coal,
The man who swallowed my soul.

The morning air,
And the sunlight he stole,
The man who swallowed my soul.

He kissed my cheeks,
My eyebrows, my neck.
I followed him blindly,
There was no turning back.
There's no turning back.

He sucked the lifeblood,
Out of my veins.
Left me and my nightgown
Covered with stains.
Covered with stains.

He said his kiss would make me whole,
The man who swallowed my soul.

The breath of life,
From my lips he stole.
The man who swallowed my soul.

He stared at me with eyes black as coal,
The man who swallowed my soul.

The morning air,
And the sunlight he stole,
The man who swallowed my soul.

He said his kiss would make me whole,
The man who swallowed my soul.

The breath of life,
From my lips he stole.
The man who swallowed my soul,
The man who swallowed my soul.
