​Spirit of a Vampyre

This song is by The Go-Betweens and appears on the album Tallulah (1987).

I was slowly dying in a clinic just outside of L.A.
You came and saw me (thank you) that picked me up straight away.
You said "Learn to dance, learn to act, learn the piano"
And most of all you said
"Learn to live again".
That's when it starts. That's when it starts.
The electric train of soft cylinder parts.
Together at last.

I dream of losing you, I wake up holding you so tight.
I don't want to lose you now that I've passed midnight.
I'm in deep with the blue waters around you.
I'm in deep, so blue with everything around you.

That's when it starts. That's when it starts.
The electric train of soft cylinder parts
The dull mask of action on circus staff
Mobility the hood of the Hindu scarf

Together at last
Making jewellery at last.
