"Vampire Heart" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
You can't escape the wrath of my heart
Beating to your funeral song (You're so alone)
All faith is lost for hell regained
And love dust in the hands of shame (Just be brave)

Let me bleed you this song of my heart deformed
And lead you along this path in the dark
Where I belong 'till I feel your warmth

Hold me
Like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me
Like you love the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

I'll be the thorns on every rose
You've been sent by hope (You'll grow cold)
I am the nightmare waking you up
From the dream of a dream of love (Just like before)

Let me weep you this poem as Heaven's gates close
Paint you my soul, scarred and alone
Waiting for your kiss to take me back home

Hold me
Like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me
Like you love the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

Hold me
Like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me
Like you love the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

Hold me (Like you held on to life)
Like you held on to life
(When all fears came alive and entombed me)
My vampire heart

Love me (Like you love the sun)
Like you love the sun
(Scorching the blood in my)
My vampire heart

    General Comment"Dream of a dream"

    Perhaps a reference/borrowing from the book (The Chronicles Of Narnia) The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe written by the great C.S. Lewis.

    General CommentThese are the correct lyrics, my Dark Light CD came on the 22 of September for some reason, and this is what it says in the booklet...

    Vampire Heart: HIM

    You can't escape the wrath of my heart,
    beating to your funeral song(just sing it),
    All faith is lost for Hell regain.
    In the dust in the hands of shame(just be brave),

    Let me bleed you this song of my heart deformed,
    bleed you along this path in the dark,
    where I belong till I feel your warmth

    Hold me like you held onto life,
    when all fears come alive and entombed me.
    Love me like you loved the sun,
    scorching the blood in my Vampire Heart.

    I'll be the thorns in every rose,
    you've been sent by hope.
    I am the nightmare waking you up,
    from the dream of a dream of love(just let me go).

    Let me weep you this poem as heavens gates close.
    Paint you my soul scarred and alone,
    waiting for your kiss to take me back home.

    Hold me like you held onto life,
    when all fears come alive and entombed me.
    Love me like you loved the sun,
    scorching the blood in my Vampire Heart.

    Hold me like you held onto life,
    when all fears come alive and entombed me.
    Love me like you loved the sun,
    scorching the blood in my Vampire Heart.

    Hold me (like you held onto life)
    like you held onto life
    (when all fears came alive and entombed me)
    My Vampire Heart

    (Love me) Love Me
    (like you loved the sun) like you loved the sun
    (scorching the blood in my)
    My Vampire Heart

    General CommentI was told valo is really into the whole romeo and juliet story, and that would make sense...b/c it is a very dark and lovely shakespear poem that deals with death...something valo really seems to have on his mind. so in light of that knowledge i feel as if this song (and some of thier others) is about the dark story of love. the lyrics "let me bleed you this song of my heart deformed, lead you along this path in the dark, where i belong till i feel your warmth." reminds me of what juliet's position to romeo was, where she would have taken the poison and fallen asleep till romeo came and woke her to start thier new life together in bliss. Also the lyrics, "I am the nightmare waking you up, from the dream of a dream of love." would'nt you think romeo being dead when juliet awoke would be a "nightmare" for her as she THOUGHT she was awaking from her dreams...to THIER dream of having a life of love together...and instead finding a lifeless romeo laying there?! if you read the lyrics you can see a poetic view from valo of his understanding and reinactment of the most popular love story in history!! my favorite him song!! any thoughts on my opinion???

    General CommentEven the lyrics and title draw you to this song, they're beautiful :) The keyboard at the start kind of reminds you of Buried Alive By Love, or The Sacrament. Cannot wait for Dark Light on the 26th :D

    General CommentI totally love him, and vampires so what better song for Ville to make. To me the meaning seems to deal with how no matter who or what you are you can still love and lust after something, clearly it is set in the POV of a vampire talking to the person he loves/lusts after and as such he turned them into a vampire to be with him, and now he wants them to love him like they loved being alive....Well that's what I think
