Orpheus in red velvet
Sing that song again
That song of jealousy and pain
Orpheus in red velvet
Sing that tearful tune
The one that's coloured by the moon

Take me through hell
For I deserve it
Take me through hell
It's for my good
Pain is sweet
However hot you serve it
And hell is no hotter
Than my jealous blood

Orpheus in red velvet
Sing your sweet refrain
My tears are falling like the rain
Orpheus in red velvet
Croon your lullaby
It makes me cry
Sing

Take me through hell
For I deserve it
Take me through hell
It's for my good
Pain is sweet
However hot you serve it
And hell is no hotter
Than my jealous blood

Orpheus in red velvet
Sorrow in your words
The sweetest words I've ever heard
Orpheus in red velvet
Sing of one that once was mine
Heartache sublime

Orpheus in red velvet
Like velvet was my valentine
Sing
