"Don't Close Your Heart" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
I know how it feels to be on your own
In this cruel world where hearts are bound to turn to stone
Where you are alone and tired of breathing
It's all going wrong and you just can't stand the pain anymore
You're too numb to believe in anything

Baby just don't close your heart
Baby just don't close your heart
Baby just don't close your heart
Darling don't let me down

I know how easy it is to let go
Surrender to despair lurking at your door
To lose your soul and all your feelings
Strength all gone
And so many things left unsaid and deeds undone
You've stopped caring
Cause it's all in vain

Baby just don't close your heart
Baby just don't close your heart
Baby just don't close your heart
Darling don't let me down

You're so alone and tired of breathing
It's all gone wrong and you just can't stand the pain

Baby just don't close your heart
Baby just don't close your heart
Baby just don't close your heart
Darling don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Just don't let me down

    General CommentWait

    THIS is the song that I don't like..

    it's a don't thing.

    The lyrics seem like something Valo threw together in a span of five minutes and it just didn't work out! *cries* WHERE'S MY HIM? WHY'D IT TURN INTO CHEESE?

    General CommentI think HIM (His Infernal Majesty) is one of the best bands around, there music is meaningful, its so true, its pure this song is about him not wanting anything to give up just like us in some relationships, this song touched me!

    General Commentgotta be careful, HIM fans get touchy if u say his infernal majesty lol, the band just say HIM stands for something else and make up lies because they think its funny . . .

    I love this song! it was like the second song i heard from them, HIM are a great band to listen to when you're dysfunctional teen (like me)

    General CommentThis song was actually kind of a disapointment. It's way too pop for my personally tastes. I mean here they are just venturing WAAAY too far into pussy-dom. In my opinion this one is more "filler" than "killer". Oh well i guess they can't all be good.

    General CommentAll you dudes who ar elike 'this is too cheerful and pop like' your not seeing the deeper meaning! Ville is saying that no matter how bad life gets don't let go! don't give in and end it all, if you keep alive oneday you will find true happiness! so next time think about the words befor eyou jump in with your ' o it's so cheery' well maybe Ville wanted to send the message that deaht isn't the answere!

    General CommentHi, Clocks is a great song, I like it. What about the meaning of this song.. I don’t think there is only one meaning. I’ve read some meanings of the site and I can understand them all. If I hear this song, I think that Chris is a bit depressed, he wants that it all stops. He wants to go home, to the save place in his life.
