​Silver Dagger

This song is by The Devil's Interval and appears on the album Blood And Honey (2006).

Don't sing love songs, you'll wake my mother,
She's sleeping here right by my side.
In her right hand is a silver dagger,
She says that I can't be your bride.

"All men are false," so says my mother,
"They'll tell you wicked loving lies,
And then they'll go and court some other,
Leave you alone to pine and cry."

My daddy is a handsome devil,
He's got a chain that's five miles long.
On every link a heart does dangle,
Of another maid he's loved and wronged.

Go court another tender maiden,
In hopes that she might be your wife.
For I've been warned, so I've decided,
To sleep alone all of my life.

Don't sing love songs, you'll wake my mother,
She's sleeping here right by my side.
In her right hand is a silver dagger,
She says that I can't be your bride.
