"In Joy and Sorrow" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
Oh girl we are the same
We are young and lost and so afraid
There's no cure for the pain
No shelter from the rain
All our prayers seem to fail

In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms
In a world so hollow
It is breaking my heart
In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms
In a world so hollow
It is breaking my heart

Oh girl we are the same
We are strong and blessed and so brave
With souls to be saved
And faith regained
All our tears wiped away

In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms
In a world so hollow
It is breaking my heart
In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms
In a world so hollow
It is breaking my heart

In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms
In a world so hollow
It is breaking my heart
In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms
In a world so hollow
It is breaking my heart

And my home's in your arms
And it is breaking my heart
My home's in your arms
And it is breaking my heart

    General Comment"god oh my god

    I don't mean to be a spelling nazi, i'm sure i've made a couple of mistakes, but really is it that hard, it's 'wouldn't you'. Don't worry, keep trying, you'll get it.

    And proposing? What the fuck? Sure it's a good song, and the blokes good looking, but really, that's is one of the lamest things I've ever heard. If you actually knew the guy, that statement would decrease in lameness slightly, but I highly doubt that you do. Anyway, i'm going to do something productive now. it's you people who give me a bad name. The statement "I like HIM, yes the band" is now followed by mocking and vomit, from anyone in earshot, thanks.

    General CommentAnd again we are the same
    We are young and lost and so afraid
    There's no cure for the pain
    No shelter from the rain
    Oh and we're so into fame

    does anybody else notice these lyrics are a little off?
