"O Death" is the theme song featured in Until Dawn. It is a rendition of the traditional American folk song by the same name, originally recorded by old-time singer, Dock Boggs. This version is performed by Amy Van Roekel, and is featured in the game's opening and ending credits. It is a soulful song with several religious references in its lyrics.


O Death, O Death.
Won't you spare me over 'til another year?

Well what is this, that I can't see?
With ice cold hands taking hold of me.
When God is gone and the Devil takes hold.
Who'll have mercy on my soul?
O Death, O Death, consider my age.
Please don't take me at this stage.

O, Death. O Death.
Won't you spare me over 'til another year?

O, I am death, and none can tell.
If I open the door to heaven or hell.
No wealth, no land, no silver, not gold.
Nothing satisfies me but your soul.
I'm Death, I come to take the soul.
Leave the body and leave it cold.

O, Death. O, Death.
Won't you spare me over 'til another year?


  • The original title of the song is "Conversations with Death''.
    • The song uses its secondary title instead in Until Dawn, hence the name "O Death". Despite having the same chorus, the other parts are very different from the original one.
