Lyrics
I told your mother you arrived for the nightmare
and she said, "Welcome child, welcome to the world."

In the eye of a tornado there is stillness
as she moves outside the wind is twisted
and baby she's twisted.
Oh, but the spirits move her
like she knew they would
and somewhere in the night time
they call out her name
and she wakes in blue velvet
blue, blue, blue velvet
Oh sweet blue velvet
Oh, she wakes up in blue velvet

Take this, take that, baby find out where it's at
Go there, come home, don't forget to bring your soul
Oh, and dress her in blue velvet
and did you hear her cry ?
Oh, I think I heard something
Yes, I think I heard something
and baby she's twisted

Something strange was going on
and you been knowing for so long
Time tickin', tickin' time
nowhere left for her to hide
Oh woe, it's almost midnight

Your runes told you something was forsaken
In the calmest waters darkness is awakened
Could it be her own heart she's breakin'
Must be that she's mistaken but
deep inside her eyes she's got secrets, she's got lies
and she hides them well under blue velvet
blue, blue, blue velvet
Oh, sweet blue velvet
Oh, she wakes up in blue velvet

Look up, Look down, Keep your feet upon the ground
Stay strong, stay tuff, ask her if she's cried enough
Oh yes, and dress her in blue velvet
and did you hear her scream ?
oh, I think I heard something, yes, I think I heard something
and baby she's twisted

When the water meets the sky
Something opens up inside
Sunrise, sunset. No way now she can forget
Oh woe, it's almost midnight
Tale your soul, hold on tight
and run for the full moon angel
ooooh, and dress her in blue velvet
