And we may dress ourselves as wolves
And leave me cold upon your doorstep

Because my ghosts are never gone
Because your baby's heart's still beating

To Kill a King - Letters To My Lover (The Dylan Fan) lyrics meaning

Meaning

To Kill a King's official lyric explanation


Letters To My Lover The Dylan Fan was a song that I wrote to be, specifically, for the end of the album. Within it, it quotes lots of the other songs that have already come before.

It does it by either finishing off the stories - so like for Fictional State there's a line which is "because your baby's heart is still beating" or there's one about "the fires will keep us warm" which is Children Who Start Fires and that sort of stuff.

The song title itself is actually a reference to the first ever acoustic album that I did long before To Kill A King - which was called Letters To My Lover The Dylan Fan which is a song which doesn't feature on the album. But I quite liked it as a title just because it was, I suppose, a song about completing other songs and then it felt nice to reference the first thing that I'd done as a songwriter.
