​The Tell-Tale Heart

This song is by Valentine Wolfe and appears on the album Once Upon a Midnight (2013).

Original video
His vulture eye is watching me
And tempting me to sin
What man could resist such devil bliss
To give in to this mortal whim

Madness winds around my mind
Haunting me both day and night
When the night comes black as pitch
I'll hear the groan of terror

That dull blue eye with the hideous veil
Chills the marrow in my bones
The hellish tattoo of his heart increases
Quicker, quicker every instant

His vulture eye is watching me
And tempting me to sin
What man could resist such devil bliss
To give in to this mortal whim

4 o'clock still dark as midnight
Who's come knocking at my door
They want to check his chambers
My manner must convince them

At ease, at ease with the world
But for the ringing in my ear
I foamed, I raved, I swore (to cover)
That beating from under the floor

His vulture eye is watching me
And tempting me to sin
What man could resist such devil bliss
To give in to this mortal whim
