I can't belive this now
This isn't what I planned
I lived and died and now
I just can't understand
With all the love I feel
I could never leave her
No matter what the cost
My soulds the price to see her

Chorus
Oh how I love you
The pain won't go away
Oh when I need you
You're always so far away
I cry for you
Leaving myself to blame
I died for you
I gave up everything

The pain was just to much
When I finally saw her
She's happy and in love
In love with my best friend
What makes it hurt so bad
Is that I love them both
And they will never know
For love I sold my soul

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentThis is about Al Simmons, a comic-book character Todd McFarlane created, otherwise known as Spawn. Spawn is killed by his own employer, and makes a deal with the devil (Malbolgia) to serve as the general of his armies if he is able to go back to his wife. "For love i sold my soul", "My souls the price to see her."

    He looses his memory, but knows what he's there to do. He wants to see his wife, Wanda. He does find her, but finds out that she's in love, and has a child, with his former best friend, Terry. "She's happy and in love, in love with my best friend."

    This song is from the album called "Dark Saga", check it out at icedearth.com It has lyrics there also, as well as information on the album, which is made about Spawn.

    Hope that helped.

    General Commentthis is one of the best songs iced earth made.. and, it's really a good one.. it's about how the girl he loves soo bad is in love with his best friend.. and he can't do anything coz he loves them both.. and, well, it's an obvious song, but a beautiful one...

    General CommentVindicator, though I believe your Spawn connection, I think the song can be taken literally about life and love. It's just an awesome song either way you look at it.

    General CommentThis song is about spawn. the entire Dark Saga CD was dedicated to Spawn. But though everyone takes songs in their own way.. just because a song was intended to mean something else, doesn't mean it wasnt made to not relate to anyone else out there.

    General Commentmay i just add, dont follow I_LIKE_BEANS advise, if you dont want spawn and such ruined then dont watch the film, it's the embodiment of shit, simple enough but important, watch the animated series or get the comics, both are fantastic

    General CommentIt dosn't matter what the song/album is about.
