"Drunk On Shadows" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
Hiding underneath
The veil of broken dreams
We find her weeping

On her once white wings
She will be carrying the weight of our deeds
And she bleeds for love
Forever gone

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in life

Finding souls to feed
The night side of Eden
We see the struggling
For her love's
Last breath and walk off

Drunk on shadows and lost in life
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in life

She's blinded by the fear
Of life and death and everything in between
We smile when she cries a river of tears
A mirror where we see nothing but a reflection of heaven too far away

Drunk on shadows and lost in life
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in life
So alive
(Drunk on shadows)
So alive

    General CommentI could be wrong, but I think it's about a girl who thought she was perfect and someone came along and made her realize she's not, and hurt her in the process (the line "we smile when she cries"). Maybe she lost her 'perfect' boyfriend as well (the line about her lovers last breathe)... not sure if he died or just left her.

    General CommentHiding underneath
    The veil of broken dreams
    We find her weeping

    On her once white wings
    She will be carrying the weight of our deeds
    And she bleeds for love
    Forever gone

    Drunk on shadows and lost in life
    Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
    Devils dance while angels smile
    Drunk on shadows and lost in life

    Finding souls to feed
    The nightside of Eden
    We see her struggling
    For her loves last breath
    And walk on

    Drunk on shadows and lost in life
    Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
    Devils dance while angels smile
    Drunk on shadows and lost in life

    She's blinded by the fear
    Of life and death and everything in between
    We smile when she cries a river of tears
    A mirror where we see
    Nothing but a reflection
    Of heaven so far away

    Drunk on shadows and lost in life
    Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
    Devils dance while angels smile
    Drunk on shadows and lost in life

    So alive
    (Drunk on shadows)
    So alive
    (Drunk on shadows)
    So alive
    (Drunk on shadows)
    (Drunk on shadows)
    So alive
    (Drunk on shadows)
    Drunk on shadows

    I believe those are the correct lyrics.
