"When Love And Death Embrace" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
I'm in love with you
And it's crushing my heart
All I want is you
To take me into your arms

When love and death embrace
I love you
And you're crushing my heart
I need you
Please take me into your arms

When love and death embrace
When love and death embrace
When love and death embrace
When love and death embrace

    General CommentOk here i go..

    I believe its all about him missing someone he cared about that died.. when love and death embrace.. the caring resembling love and death as death obviously. and he wants to have him or her back in his arms and wants them to come back but he knows they cant.. so its crushing his heart.. well yeah.. thats what i think..

    General CommentThis song really gets to me. I think the song is about loving someone whos sadly passed on and then being together yet again in death. Hence, when love and death embrace. I want a tattoo on my collar bones that says R.I.P. Papa, then on the other collar bone i want his birthdate and the day he died. and under both of those i want it to say "please take into your arms, when love and death embrace" kinda cheesey, yes. however, very meaningful.

    General CommentI love HIM. This is the song that always makes me cry. It's about the loss of love. And hopelessness. Feeling so alone, like there's no love left for you in this world. Just wanting to die. Wanting an angel to take you in his arms and love you... to fall asleep, and never wake up.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. I think the vocals are fantastic. I think that the song really speaks for itself. But this song makes me feel sort of... sad but in a weird way. Like at the end of a sad movie. The movie was sad... but ultimately... it's happy now and it's over and you're wiping the tears from you cheeks as you walk out of the theatre.

    General CommentIt´s really amazing. It gathers all the feelings many songs try to describe just in one piece.The words are not the important part.Valo´s tone sets the mood for this song, making it ...unforgettable.
