"The Funeral Of Hearts" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
love's the funeral of hearts
an ode for cruelty
when angels cry blood
on flowers of evil in bloom

The funeral of hearts
And a plea for mercy
When love is a gun
Separating me from you

She was the sun
Shining upon
The tomb of your hopes and dreams so frail
He was the moon
Painting you
With it's glow so vulnerable and pale

Love's the funeral of hearts
And an ode for cruelty
When angels cry blood
On flowers of evil in bloom

The funeral of hearts
And a plea for mercy
When love is a gun
Separating me from you

She was the wind, carrying in
All the troubles and fears you've for years tried to forget
He was the fire, restless and wild
And you were like a moth to that flame

The heretic seal beyond divine
A prayer to a god who's deaf and blind
The last rites for souls on fire
Three little words and a question, why?

Love's the funeral of hearts
And an ode for cruelty
When angels cry blood
On flowers of evil in bloom

The funeral of hearts
And a plea for mercy
When love is a gun
Separating me from you

    General CommentTo me this song means, if your going to love, your going to get hurt. If you want to love, you might as well be asking for cruelty, and begging for mercy, like the lines in the song. That's just what it means to me... Anywho, once again another great HIM song.

    General CommentThis is one of the songs that have been a part of me so long. It opened my eyes for HIM; and metal. Maybe I was 10 when I saw the vid for the first time, and for years after that I searched after them, but I did not know what the song or band was called. But manny years later, I saw the vid at TV, and days after I bought my first HIM cd. I fell in love with a band.

    The lyrics, vocal and music is just perfect. It will always be my favorite song...

    General Commentwell on 'Love Metal Archives' (really amazing dvd) Ville says that FOH is about that all things come to and end - but that their ending should be celebrated, not mourned. he also stated that he wasn't sad at his grandma's funeral cos he remembered all the good things about her. that's what this songs about:) yay i absolutely love it. the video is so awesome too.

    *bows down and worships HIM*
