I found her on a night of fire and noise Wild bells rang in a wild sky I knew from that moment on I'll love her till the day that I died And I kissed away a thousand tears My lady of the various sorrows Some begged, some borrowed, some stolen Some kept safe for tomorrow On and endless night, silver star spangled The bells from the chapel went jingle-jangle
[Chorus] Do you love me? do you love me? Do you love me? do you love me? Do you love me? do you love me? Do you love me? like I love you?
She was given to me to put things right And I stacked all my accomplishments beside her Still I seemed so obsolete and small I found god and all his devils inside her In my bed she cast the blizzard out A mock sun blazed upon her head So completely filled with light she was Her shadow fanged and hairy and mad Our love-lines grew hopelessly tangled And the bells from the chapel went jingle-jangle
She had a heart full of love and devotion She had a mindful of tyranny and terror Well, I try, I do, I really try But I just err, baby, I do, I error So come find me, my darling one I'm down to the grounds, the very dregs Ah, here she comes, blocking the sun Blood running down the inside of her legs The moon in the sky is battered and mangled Band the bells from the chapel go jingle-jangle
All things move toward their end I knew before I met her that I would lose her I swear I made every effort to be good to her I made every effort not to abuse her Crazy bracelets on her wrists and her ankles And the bells from the chapel go jingle-jangle
