Close your eyes, it's easier that way
A golden cup and a toast to kings
Lost and decayed we are cut beyond our saving
But we home now, the room is still warm

Fell in love with an angel, a heart that isn't cold
Say goodnight, we are dying, just hold on
I've blessed these shadows and tasted every one
They can't steal our love tonight

A century of open arms that shield the light
This battle scar is healing
Cast all the pain to the tourniquet that binds me
We are home now, The sun won't hurt you anymore

Fell in love with an angel, a heart that isn't cold
Say goodnight, we are dying, just hold on
I've blessed these shadows and tasted every one
They can't steal our love tonight

Love has given me a reason to live
Love has given me a reason to die

Fell in love with an angel, a heart that isn't cold
Say goodnight, we are dying, just hold on
I've blessed these shadows and tasted every one
They can't steal our love tonight
Fell in love with an angel, a heart that isn't cold...
I can feel the pain of the sun as it lights up the air
I can taste the hope, it's everywhere...

Love has given me reason to live
and Love has given me a reason to say goodbye

    General Commentyeah the last two lines are awesome.
    this song is beautiful, and for me, the easiest to derive meaning from.
    it's the end of the battle, and they're saying their goodbyes, because he's been like, severely wounded or something.

    Fell in love with an angel, a heart that isn't cold
    Say goodnight, we are dying, just hold on
    I've blessed these shadows and tasted every one
    They can't steal our love tonight

    Going over how they fell in love even though they could never really be together, being an angel & vampire.
    One [or both of them, i guess] is/are dying, and in their last moments together they're really free, because they've been half-heartedly fighting the love the whole time, and now they can kind of embrace it?

    I dunno. ^_^ I'm bad at explaining things. but this song is awesome.

    General CommentThere are no words that can describe the love that these two are feeling. The lyrics are amazing and very meaningful.

    General CommentThis is the most beautiful song in the whole entire world. It's pretty damn obvious what it means. I could listen to this & only this for the rest of my life haha.

    General CommentI always thought this song was about a double suicide. The angel and the vampire could (obviously) never be together in life, so they did the next best thing and died together.
