Your bodies empty now
As I hold you
Now gone I miss you
But I told you
I remember bad times
More than good
There's no coming back
Even if we could
I loved you to deth
If I can't have you
Than no one will
And since I won't
I'll have to kill
My only love, something
I've never felt
Now you've gone to heaven
And you'll burn in hell
I loved you to deth

(Solo-Mustaine)

And now I'm down below
And what do I see
You didn't go to heaven
Your down here with me
And now coming back,
Baby, take me, please!
I really think I would
If you weren't such a sleaze
I loved you once before
You kept me on a string
I'd rather go without
Than take what you would bring
I loved you to deth

    General Commentdude how can u not like mustaine's vocals? especially on this album!!! he sounds so angry and metal!!! i think dave is the best metal vocalist ever...i dont care what anyone says...sure he may not have the dynamics of a GREAT singer, but he is unique and it sounds all growly and metal!

    General CommentHe performed a 'mercy killing' on his girlfriend then commited suicide because of a bad relationship. He meets her in Hell but he knows things will still be the same.

    General CommentI think there's some mistake in the lyrics, how is she supposed to "go to heaven and burn in hell"? The song is nice because it is very ironic. He kills this girl because she didn't love him back, and he thought she'll go to heaven, and he'll go to hell, but why did you know that he killed himself? It's possible but not mentioned, anyway when he dies by whatever means, he finds out she was not that good girl afterall, she's down in hell with him! A very Romantic Song!

    General CommentWTF where is the lyrics to Loved to deth?
    Ill put em here for ya

    Your bodies empty now
    As I hold you
    Now gone I miss you
    But I told you
    I remember bad times
    More than good
    There’s no coming back
    Even if we could
    I loved you to deth
    If I can’t have you
    Than no one will
    And since I won’t
    I’ll have to kill
    My only love, something
    I’ve never felt
    Now you’ve gone to heaven
    And you’ll burn in hell
    I loved you to deth



    And now I’m down below
    And what do I see
    You didn’t go to heaven
    Your down here with me
    And now coming back,
    Baby, take me, please!
    I really think I would
    If you weren’t such a sleaze
    I loved you once before
    You kept me on a string
    I’d rather go without
    Than take what you would bring
    I loved you to deth

    General CommentKickass metal. Pounding guitar riffs. And attitude. Everything necessary to piss off the neighbors and rock out. Doesn't hurt If you have an ex that you hate.

    General CommentThat opening guitar riff is just evil. Ya gotta love it. And then you hear Mustaine's scream... wicked! I just hate Mustaine's actually singing. He sounds high... times infinity. Awesome song either way.
