This is my new favourite thing:
Dracula’s Lament (Jason Segel)

From the not-bad movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

The best cover I’ve heard so far is here.

It’s so sad and lovely, and I’d like to encourage further appearances of this song, so consider this a litle way-station for people who are taking a serious interest in it.

Here are the lyrics:

Jason Segel – Dracula’s Lament

It’s getting kind of hard to believe things are going to better.
I’ve been drowning too long to believe that the tide’s going to turn.
And I’ve been living too hard to believe things are going to get easier now.
I’m still trying to shake off the pain from the lessons I’ve learned.
And if I see Van Helsing I swear to the Lord I will slay him. AH-HAH-HAH-HAH!
He’d take it from me, but I swear I won’t let it be so. AH-HAH-HAH-HAH!
Blood will run down his face when he is decapitated. AH!
His head on my mantle is how I will let this one know: how much I love you.

Die.

Die.

Die.

I can’t.

*sniff*

I just need a moment…

(grimaces)
(cracks)
(bawls)

UPDATE – OK, some passable tabs can be found here (hidden under ‘more info’), complete with a handy video. Fine and selfless work from enigma515, who has also done this same job on Peter, You Suck).

Do shout out if you find a better/tidier version or if you think you can better/tidy any of this.

    Funny, my housemate just yesterday rented Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I watched it with her despite having seen it at the cinema, mostly cause I wanted to hear Dracula's Lament again.

    Oh, and isn't it "how much I will let this *world* know?"

    Opinion differs. I think the word 'one' works better with the rest of the line.

    It's definitely "world."
