If I Told You Once


If I told you once, I told you a thousand times, my dear
Never to fall in love with a man who drinks from the well of despair
I thought from the very start I made it quite clear, I fear
Now you're righteously fucked as you swing from a rope at the top of the stairs.
If I told you once, I told you twice
I was held in the grip of incurable vice
Lips turning blue like the shade of your eyes
Limbs shuddered and twitched as you met your demise
You must have looked pretty as you stepped off the chair
Pink satin slippers,how they danced in the air
Your dainty tongue swelled to an alarming degree~
Hope you were thinking of me.
Hope you were thinking of me,
thinking of me.

If I told you twice, I told you two thousand times, my dear
Never to fall in love with a man who's broken beyond all repair
I knew from the very start you'd end up right here - so queer!
Now you've left me with naught but a suicide note and a lock of your hair
If I mentioned it once, I mentioned it twice
I was bound in the throes of unearthly device
Radiance bloomed as I lay you to rest
Shadows of moonbeam alight in your breast
Deep in the ground where the worms have their feast
At last you can taste an incurable peace
Now that you're dead and you're finally free
Hope you were thinking of me
Hope you were thinking of me,
thinking of me.

If I told you thrice, I told you three thousand times, my dear
Never to fall in love with a man who'd draw you into his lair
I warned from the very start the end would be rather severe
Now your screams fall like vaporous stones from your mouth into the night air
One time begat twice, then third time's the charm
Disregarded all obvious signs of alarm
Skin milky white as you lie repose
Tattered dress stained, from the blood I suppose
So hollow and vacant, devoid of all light
Your epitaph written on our wedding night
As your muscles were twitching in their final plea
Hope you were thinking of me....
