"Salt in Our Wounds" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
Here we are
In the maelstrom of love
Waiting for the call
To sooth our hearts
Here we are
And don't know how to stop
Waiting for the war
To end it all

Love is insane and baby
We are too
It's our hearts little grave
And the salt in our wounds
Love is insane and baby
So we too, yeah
It's our hearts little grave
And the salt in our wounds

Here we are
Right back where we began
Waiting for sweet love
With open arms
Here we are
Just like before
Waiting for the wounds
Of that tender storm

Love is insane and baby
We are too
It's our hearts little grave
And the salt in our wounds
Love is insane and baby
So we too, yeah
It's our hearts little grave
And the salt in our wounds

Love is insane and baby
We are too
It's our hearts little grave
And the salt in our wounds
Love is insane and baby
So we too, yeah
It's our hearts little grave
And the salt in our wounds

Love is insane and baby
We are too
It's our hearts little grave
And the salt in our wounds
Love is insane and baby
So we too, yeah
It's our hearts little grave
And the salt in our wounds

The salt in our wounds
The salt in our wounds

    General Commenti got to know H.I.M. through a quirky guy in 01' summer.
    This type of music is so not what i listen to...
    they're so dark so painful, but i don't know why
    i started to like their music beacuse of this quirky guy.
    Come to think about it, i owe this guy an apology, cause i said something really bad to him...anywayz...and he'd probably never understand why.

    General Commentman this song really reminds me of a past relationship, it was like we wanted to get into a fight just to get things out ,but at the same time ever so wanting to feel love for each other. yet another song on the duality of love

    General CommentVille Valo's explaining for this song in the book called "Synnin Viemää" (In English that "Synnin Viemää" means Gone with the sin) is pretty funny.. :)

    General CommentThis song litteraly means love is like putting salt in your wounds. Doing this is extreamly painful!

    "Love is insane and Baby
    We are too
    It's our hearts little grave
    And the salt in our wounds"

    Love is crazy and unpredictable. Loves blinds us and makes us do foolish things and because of this sometimes we set ourselves up for heartache. Or things just go wrong. When this happens we are putting the salt in our wounds.

    General Comment"Here we are
    In the maelstrom of Love
    Waiting for the calm
    To soothe our hearts..."

    One of my all time favorite HIM lyrics. Not only does his voice sound like butter when he sings this part, but its so deliberately perfect. Ville is such a poet.
