"The One I Love" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
Haven't slept in a week
My bed has become my coffin
Cannot breath, cannot speak
My head's like a bomb, still waiting
Take my heart and take my soul
I don't need them anymore

[Chorus:]
The one I love
Is striking me down on my knees
The one I love
Drowning me in my dreams
The one I love
Over and over again
Dragging me under

Hypnotized by the night
Silently rising beside me
Emptiness, nothingness
Is burning a hole inside me
Take my faith and take my pride
I don't need them anymore

[Chorus]

This bed has become my chapel of stone
A garden of darkness to where I'm thrown
So take my life, I don't need it anymore

[Chorus]

The one I love
Is striking me down on my knees
Striking me down
Drowning me in my dreams
Down on my knees
Over and over again
Striking me down
Over and over and over and over again

    General Commentgives the vibe that he's in a relationship with a very domineering person.. someone who turns his life into a living hell but he doesnt care because he's so in love.. whenever he wakes up and sees what she does to him she manipulates him back into being her puppy.. he finally gets fed up with it but he cant bring himself to get rid of it???

    General CommentThis song is about being hurt by somebody you love. Whether this person is hurting you on purpose or not is really up to your own interpretation of the song.
    In my opinion this song is about finding out that someone you like loves somebody else. About having your heart completely shattered and suffering everyday. You are reminded of them every second everyday and everynight and it feels like pure torture, "the one of love is striking me down on my knees, the one I love is drowning me in my dreams" The one you love is killing you without he/she knowing.
    This is just my take of the song, so dont flame me.

    General Commentwell I can relate to this song pretty well.I loved this girl ,like a sister,and she went behind my back and started spreading lies about me to cover up her lies.To keep the focus off of what she had done. Now I cant stand to look at her w/o thinking about what we were like.She doesnt know how much she hurt me.
