What about "I Hold your Hand in Mine" by Tom Leher? As in:

I hold your hand in mine, Dear
I press it to my lips,
But now each time I kiss it,
I get blood stains on my lips...

The night you died, I cut it off
I really don't know why,
'cause now each time I hold it,
I get blood stains on my tie... (and so forth)

Also, many of the songs in "Sweeny Todd".
