"I've Crossed Oceans Of Wine To Find You" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
There was a time when I
Could breath my life into you
One by one your pale fingers
Started to move

And I touched your face
And all death was erased
And you smiled like an angel
Falling from heaven
Just to be lift up again

And you kissed my lips
With those once cold fingertips
You run me back to life
And all things come to an end

We don't have to pretend
Slowly we fall asleep
And never wake up again

We're so Christ like
We're so lifelike
Vampire Christ

We're so alive
We're so lifelike
Vampire Christ

In the grace
Of this love
We rise in pain

And death is not far away
And soon we'll sleep
And never wake up again

There was a time when I
Could breath my life
Into you

And all's been come to an end
We don't have to pretend
Slowly we fall asleep

We're Christ like
So lifelike
Vampire Christ

We're so lifelike
So Christ like
A Vampire Christ

    General CommentThe name is a play on the line "I've crossed oceans of time to find you" from Bram Stoker's Dracular, but then, you already knew that, im sure.

    General CommentAmazing track, Definately one of my fave HIM tracks. As for the smilliarity to "Resurrection", I think that "I've Crossed Oceans Of Wine..." is actually just a demo that ended up turning into "Resurrection" over time.

    General CommentCodfather is correct, "Oceans Of Wine" was the origional version of "Resurrection". I love both versions. In the end of this song, one of the last lines Ville sings (We're Christ like, So lifelike, Vampire Christ) just rips your heart out... Anyways, great HIM song!
