"The Tell-Tale Heart" lyrics - TOURNIQUET

"The Tell-Tale Heart"

I cut him up this evening
And when they came to check the screams
On the very spot I killed him
I served a spot of tea

I left no evidence
That anything was wrong
But the unnerving sound beneath the floorboards
Reminded me of what I'd done

I thought I'd committed
The perfect fool-proof crime
I never knew how heavy
It would weigh upon my mind

Things done in secret
Under cover of night
Have a funny way
Of being brought into the light

I admit the deed!
Can't you hear the beating
I admit the deed!
I'm being driven mad by the tell-tale heart
