A Long Day's Night album at
Blue Oyster Cult's, "Don't Fear The Reaper"
The Lyrics:
Came the last night of sadness.
And it was clear that she couldn't go on.
Then the door was open and the wind appeared.
The candles blew then disappeared.
The curtains flew and then he appeared. (Saying don't be afraid.)
Come on, baby. (And she had no fear.)
And she ran to him. (Then they started to fly.)
They looked backward and said goodbye. (She had become like they are.)
She had taken his hand. (She had become like they are.)
Sounds like this female protagonist chose death.
