"Bittersweet" as written by Sameer Bhattacharya, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Lacey Nicole Sturm and Kirkpatrick Seals....
I'm giving up the ghost of love
And a shadow is cast on devotion
She's the one that I adore
Queen of my silent suffocation

Break this bittersweet spell on me
Lost in the arms of destiny
Bittersweet

I won't give up, I'm possessed by her
I'm bearing a cross, she's turned into my curse

Break this bittersweet spell on me
Lost in the arms of destiny
Bittersweet, I want you (how I wanted you)
And I need you (how I needed you)

Oh, break this bittersweet spell on me
Lost in the arms of destiny
Break this bittersweet spell on me
Lost in the arms of destiny

Bittersweet

    General Comment"Basically it's a song about two guys who are involved with the same girl. So, the one guy is in a relationship with this girl, and then the other guy wants to get in to this relationship."

    General Commenti agree with titania098, the voices do give a sounding board between the different kinds of voices Ville and Lauri have, other Rock/Alternative duets that should happen...
    Ville Valo (HIM) & Amy Lee (Evanescence)
    Ville Valo (HIM) & Free Dominguez (Lead Vocalist from Kidney Thieves)
    Johnathan Davis (Korn) & Lauri (Rasmus)
    Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) & Ville Valo (HIM)
    Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) and Amy Lee (Evanescence)

    Any more that you guys can think of would be a good help

    General CommentIt is an amazing song, i think that one day ville valo (HIM) and Tarja (Nightwish) should do a duet. It wud be cool, coz ville a deep voice and Tarja a high-ish voice, it wud go great together

    General CommentNice but I prefer Valo's voice over Lauri's, anyway it's nice since Apocalyptica plays it!

    General Commentthis song is great!! i love it. i do think it sounds wierd but in a good way. the video is strange and i don't think the woman in it is very atractive. but its good, valo's very low voice, with lauri's high scratchy voice sounds different. and valo should never do a duet with the chick from evanescence, they suck, even if valo helped them they'd still suck...PERIOD!!

    General CommentI adore this song.
    But I too prefer Ville's deep croon over Lauri's.

    But man, this is awesome. Especially with all the cello music. Ah, so wonderful. The video to it is just as great.
