"Love You to Death" as written by and Glenn Raymond/halford Tipton....
When they met she was fifteen
Like a black rose blooming wild
And she already knew she was gonna die

"What's tomorrow without you?
This is our last goodbye"

She got weaker every day
As the autumn leaves flew by
Until one day, she told him, "This is when I die"

"What was summer like for you?"
She asked him with a smile
"What's tomorrow without you?"
He silently replied

She said,

"I will always be with you
I'm the anchor of your sorrow
There's no end to what I'll do
Cause I love you, I love you to death"

But the sorrow went too deep
The mountain fell too steep
And the wounds would never heal
Cause the pain of the loss was more than he could feel

He said,

"I will always be with you
By the anchor of my sorrow
All I know, or ever knew,
Is I love you, I love you to death"

"What's tomorrow without you?
Is this our last goodbye?"

[Solo]

"I will always be with you
I'm the anchor of your sorrow
There's no end to what I'll do
Cause I love you"

    General CommentThis song also means a lot to me. It really relates to the way we feel sometimes, so it also sends chills down my spine and puts a lump in my throat. It's probably the only song I know that does that except for Walnut Tree by Keane. And it's incredible that Kamelot is the only artist I have that has 5 stars for every song. That's saying something. Keep up the good work, symphonic metal rocks.

    General CommentWow... this is a beautiful song, very touching.

    If it wasn't obvious, young lovers, the girl only has limited time to live (don't know if it's cancer or what), but she asks him how his summer was and he tells her he will always love her.

    General CommentTom said in an interview that this song is based on an old Japanese tale about two young lovers. The girl dies at 15 and tells him that she will meet him again is 18 years. And as 18 years pass by, the guy meets a girl and she says "I'm your girlfrind from 18 years ago."

    General Comment.. I agree with the limited time left but..
    I also think it might be a suicidal girl. Like, her will to live on grew weaker and her thoughts grew darker..and that the one she loved had to watch her get to the point where she gave in....and that he had to hear her tell him that she was going through with it....and then his devistation of her death
