Steve Vai feat. Devin Townsend – “Still My Bleeding Heart” live in 1993

“Still My Bleeding Heart” is taken from Steve Vai’s album “Sex & Religion” (1993).

This album features Devin Townsend on vocal, T.M. Stevens on bass and Terry Bozzio on drums. The singing of young Devin Townsend is absolutely impressive. Once hearing his voice, we can realise his innate ability.

I love this album and 4 talented musicians performances so much. Devin is the genius.

Lyrics

A child to a boy
From a boy to a man
Pride growing stronger
Reaching his victories

He speaks no lies
He fights his cause
He judges not the scavengers
That persecute humanity

Fate does call
And the sickness falls
Lights of life dim down
Fear like an alien comes to view
But with words like the mountains

I’ll die like a soldier in your arms
My will enduring till the pain is gone
Then he looked into his lover’s eyes and he cried
In the name of love
Still my bleeding heart
For the love of God
Still my bleeding heart

His chin he held high
And the courage in his voice
Was like the burning of the sun
But like the breath of an angel

How could this be
I had to scream
Why this innocent young boy
Must suffer so helplessly

But who am I
To challenge God
In the ways of the world
Remain divine mystery

I crumble down
On my hands and knees
While his words fill the air
As he looks into his destiny

I’ll die like a soldier in your arms
I will be brave so you can be strong
And then he looked into his lover’s eyes and he cried
In the name of love
Still my bleeding heart
For the love of God
Still my bleeding heart

And he died like a soldier in his lover’s arms
Brave as a hero in a blood red war
And his final words as he reached for the stars

In the name of love
Still my bleeding heart
Be well my love
Still my bleeding heart
