"Love, The Hardest Way" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
Love is the devil counting teardrops in the rain
To the sound of a chalkboard symphony played with nails
For what it's worth I don't wanna see you hurt anymore
Than you have to

Dine on glass, wine on blood
Baby, love the hard way
Baudelaire in Braille
Baby, love the harder way
Once you lose yourself entomb
I promise you love the hardest way

Pretty like a flower on a tomb you are kissed
blue by the last arrows of your sun
Olly olly oxen free
Hide and go weep
Oh, no more
Unless you want


Love the hardest way
Love the hardest way
Love the hardest way

    General CommentThis song is about how hard relationships are. Some people have been hurt so much in love, it's what they know. So to me, it's kind of like he's saying ok, this is not going to be easy.. so prepare for the worst. But just know that I've been hurt too, and I love you, and "for what it's worth, I don't wanna' see you hurt anymore than you have to." It's sexy, and sweet...

    General CommentOnly three comments??? First off, I think it's supposed to be "Hide and go weep no more, unless you want to" as a play on "hide and go seek".
    Second: youtube.com/…
    It's an interview with Ville about the song, speaking about the "Illogical part of relationships in general, and if you love someone and things aren't going well you may as well be strong enough to let them go, and if it's written in the stars you may meet up again someday. A few kisses is not just enough you know, there are a lot of logistics involved as well.... (Specifically with him touring and being a musician)"
    I think JPHendrix is right, Ville said it himself. Relationships are hard and sometimes the best thing you can do when you love someone is let them go.
