GIVE ME GOTHIC
Give me Gothic, give me darkness,
Give me ghosts that wail for love.
Give me spooky rustic dungeons
And screams with silence from above.
Give me secrets from mad history
And families haunted by the blood
Spilled by murderous ancestors,
Unexpected corpses who then thud;
Wailing winds and tempests’ fury
Sudden gasps at graveside digs
Secret heirs, consumptive daughters
Sombre priests in fancy rigs
And buried in the churchyard
Something never to be told
Demons, ghosts and witches
Thrills that never will grow old.
