"Dark Light" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
Shivers run through the spine
Of hope as she cries
The poisoned tears of a life denied
In the raven-black night
Holding hands with

Dark light
Come shine in her lost heart tonight
And blind
All fears that haunt her with your smile
Dark light

In oblivion's garden
Her body's on fire
Writhing towards the angel defiled
To learn how to die
In peace with her God

Dark light
Come shine in her lost heart tonight
And blind
All fears that haunt her with your smile
Dark light

    General CommentAll you bitches dissing HIM...GO HOME! HIM is an amazing band, with amazing lyrics, amazing songs, and Ville has an amazing voice. If you don't like it, don't listen to it, but don't diss!

    General CommentI like this song, it's a nice, dark, fairly typical HIM song thanks to Ville Valo's spectacular ability to write a song so wonderfully.
    I believe each HIM album just keeps getting better and better with each release, and this is no exception.
    I wish HIM would come to Australia so badly, however, just so I could listen to Ville sing Heartache Every Moment live (my fave HIM song).
    I heart HIM.

    General Commentthis is a song about a young girl who is cast from society, and her ability to cope with it. she wants to feel love from something IE: parents rejecting her for who she is, or society for that matter
    she recedes into a "dark light" for it tells her to remain who she is, and washes away her fears of a world so cold to her. and to be strong, for it will make her a better person

    General CommentThat is the absolute worst intro HIM or any band have ever performed. More crap lyrics.

    General Commenti agree with surfryder about the meaning of this song. i also think it could be a negative thing that she turns to, hence the "dark" but it is also a "light" because for her it is a positive thing as she is able to be herself and be free from her troubles.
    ..that might not make sense.. but i know what im trying to explain =P

    and tapsatdawn ..shuldnt u enjoy music becuz it simply is good music.. not becuz of wat the singer looks like? you say you liked it.. but once you saw ville vallo you cant take it seriously? thats rather sad.. you dont have to like what he or HIM as a whole look like.. but it shouldnt alter your thoughts on the music.

    General CommentWell actually, I think that this song is about the guy, he loves this girl but she refuses him, so everytime she is in pain, it gives him hope of her breaking down and accepting him. But this is deffinately the worst song HIM has come out with, deffinately not one of the best!
