The Green Fairy
2006 Bonnie McKannon (lyrics) BMI, Jerry Fielden (music) SOCAN

Enshrined in darkness are these eyes
That pain me to look into
And yet I cannot look away
As their sweet seduction lures me in

The absinthe kisses burn me so,
But bring a pleasure new
Causing me to writhe beneath
This perfect stranger of shadow

The Green Fairy
With sugared breath, sweet-scented
From the Green Fairy
Comes beautiful death, demented

Voiceless words are spoken through
Screams of lustful fear
Caught between Hell and Heaven,
Inducing madness and elation

I bleed, I seethe, not a breath do I breathe
As this familiar fiend moves on
And with his leaving, I realize then
All along, I was alone
