"Blood & Fire" is a song by Type O Negative, included on the third album Bloody Kisses, released in 1993. This song deals with trying to rekindle the love with her while ending the threat of being set on fire by them.
It is strange that three out of four Type O members hated this song and were cringed when they played this song. Sal Abruscato said it sounded "too Eighties." Regarding romantic theme of this song, Josh Silver said acquiring romance doesn't really have a place in music. Peter Steele, who liked this song, gave him something special as he had sexual desire for smoke and fire.
No more nights Of blood & fire No more nights Of blood & fire Yeah I always thought we'd be together And that our love could not be better Well with no warning you were gone I still don't know what went wrong You don't know what I've been through Just want to put my love in you No more nights Of blood & fire No more nights Of blood & fire All those special memories Now I bleed for you - burn for me Perhaps I was just dreaming When I think these things had real meaning You don't know what I've been through Just want to put my love in you Love eternal Lust infernal Bleeding, burning Needing, yearning Moi cherie You remain A mystery to me I see your face in every flame With no answers I have only myself to blame Of all the women I have known - they're not you I'd rather be alone No more nights Of blood & fire No more nights Of blood & fire No more nights Of blood & fire No more nights Of blood & fire
