"Love You to Death" is a track of the Type O Negative album October Rust, released in 1996. Although it is the album's third track, it is the first song of the album. The song contains a mixture of Cocteau Twins and The Beatles on top with gothic sounds, haunted piano and atmospheric sound effects that make them ooze the loss and lounge. It is about psychotic love.
"Love You to Death" is the first of four singles released from October Rust. The single was released eight days before the release of the album. There is an official music video for this song.
In her place one hundred candles burning As salty sweat drips from her breast Her hips move and I can feel what they're saying, swaying They say the beast inside of me's gonna get ya, get ya, get... yeah Yeah Black lipstick stains her glass of red wine I am your servant, may I light your cigarette? Those lips smooth, yeah I can feel what you're saying, praying They say the beast inside of me's gonna get ya, get ya, get... yeah Yeah I beg to serve, your wish is my law Now close those eyes and let me love you to death Shall I prove I mean what I'm saying? Begging I say the beast inside of me's gonna get ya, get ya, get.. yeah Let me love you to... Let me love you to death To death Let me love you to... Let me love you to death To death Am I good enough for you? Am I good enough for you? Am I? For you? Am I? For you? Am I good enough For you?
