"Gone With The Sin" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
I love your skin oh so white
I love your touch cold as ice
And I love every single tear you cry
I just love the way you're losing your life

My Baby, how beautiful you are
My Darling, completely torn apart
You're gone with the sin my Baby and beautiful you are
You're gone with the sin my Darling

I adore the despair in your eyes
I worship your lips once red as wine
I crave for your scent sending shivers down my spine
I just love the way you're running out of life

    General Commentinterview with valo

    TOTP: Is "Gone With The Sin" your favourite song?

    VILLE: Favourite song is the wrong expression. It's a special song. We haven't composed a ballad like this yet. There aren't these hard guitar riffs, it is really soft. It's interesting to deal with such things, but faster songs suit us better.


    TOTP: Must love songs always be ballads?

    VILLE: No, but ballads base on stories. This song deals about a dead love. That’s why we weren't surprised that it became a ballad. Ballads are breakable, like love.


    TOTP: What does "sin" mean in this song?

    VILLE: "Sin" symbolizes the irresolution, the bad behaviour towards himself – not the sin in the religious sense. I deal with people who don’t know what to do with their lives. Who die because of their self-pity and who complain about everything but never have the idea to take charge of their lives themselves. There are too many of them! I'm angry about that!

    General Commentthis song is pretty easy to figure out, but i think hes saying how the girl in this song is so beautiful that she sinful and that he loves everything about her... including the sin...

    General Commentactually, i think this song is mocking a girl who is killing herself. Get it? Gone with the sin... killing yourself is a sin, you'll go to hell... If you've seen this live video, he turns around and his jacket says "Your pretty face is going to hell"
    Also in the live version, he sings:

    I adore the despair in your eyes
    I worship your lips once red as wine
    and i wait for your arms to hold me so tight (Rigomortis)
    and i love the way you're running out of life

    anyways, yea great song, Ville Valo is the sexiest man alive

    General CommentThe jacket that ville valo wears when he is singing gone with the sin live which says *your pretty face is going to hell* doesnt have anything to do with the song, its is a lyric from a differant song by another artsit
    this song is by far one of the best songs they have ever done, valos singing this from personal experiance and it is shown when ever they perform it

    General Comment'Your pretty face is going to hell' is an Iggy Pop reference, Valo's a huge Iggy Pop fan and often wears iggy tshirts on stage

    General Commentlisten quiffporn, i wouldnt openly admit that you want ville to die, especially since there's a whole army of girls (and more than a few lads) that love Ville, and HIM, who would easily rip you to pieces. anyway, i just think that you're jealous of ville....

    General CommentOk dude, just for the record, I'm not trying to start a fight either, it's just that my sister and a bunch of my friends are into HIM, so I am forced to listen to them a lot, which has resulted in me hating them even more.

    The whole concept of this web page is about what a song means to us (good or bad), for me, all but one of HIMs songs for me, represent feelings of wanting to take the toaster into the bathroom with me...

    General Commentok this is a perfect oppurtunity for me to say if you dont like him simply dont come on this to leave messages everyone to their own but keep your opinions of him out of this if you are gonna slag him of . how dare quiffporn say i hope ville dies of lung cancer because im telling you that man has more talent for writing beautiful songs with meaning that help people in similar situations than quiffporn will ever have , hasnt he ever heard of karma what goes around comes around and by god he will fill the wrath from many others like myself...
