"Drive Away My Heart" as written by and Ida Sivertsen....
Fear is no longer hanging around
You should capture my view
Cause I don't want nothing else but you

You can treat me like you please
Baby, it's OK with me
Leave me bleeding on the floor
From my heart, from my heart's core

Oh, drive away my heart tonight
Cause it is no loner mine
Drive away my heart tonight
Cause it's no longer mine

I wanna give you love
I wanna show you love
And so love will be my grave
Love will be my grave

Oh, drive away my heart tonight
Cause it is no longer mine
Drive away my heart tonight
Cause it's no longer mine

    General Commentthis is one of the most heart-felt songs that i've heard in a while.

    the girl is venting frustrations about her liking the guy and all he does is take advantage of her and kill her emotions time and time again.

    General Commenti havent posted on any song for about a year or two...but this song was randomly on my itunes, i listened to it... and oh my god its so awesome.

    "I wanna give you love
    I wanna show you love
    And so love will be my grave
    Love will be my grave"

    one of the best few lyrics i've heard in so long... so little words, but so much meaning.

    i think the song is of someone, can either be a guy or a girl, who's gotten to really feel for another person. They let their emotions get the better of their reason, and want to completely give themself to this person, this person who doesn't necessarily want to give themselves back. Now they've gone too far to stop. They're so infatuated with this person, that even that they have a sick notion that it won't turn out the way they want it, they have such strong feelings that they keep hoping the other person will feel the same way, and thus, are giving complete control to the other person. They know this is a mistake, with that line, "love will be my grave", its like, they know this is going to break them, but they want it so bad it doesnt matter, even the chance of having such a love, such a connection, could be worth the pain and suffering of a failure.

    i hate bein depressed and knowing exactly what these songs are about...lol
