01. Vampire Heart

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
You can't escape the wrath of my heart
Beating to your funeral song (You're so alone)
All faith is lust for hell regained
And love dust in the hands of shame (Just be brave)

Let me bleed you this song of my heart deformed
And lead you along this path in the dark
Where I belong until I feel your warmth

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

I'll be the thorns in every rose
You've been sent by hope (You'll grow cold)
I am the nightmare waking you up
From the dream of a dream of love (Just like before)

Let me weep you this poem as Heaven's gates close
And paint you my soul, scarred and alone
Waiting for your kiss to take me back home

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire HEART

Hold me like you held on to life
Like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
My vampire heart

Love me like you loved the sun
Like you love the sun
Scorching the blood in my, my vampire heart


02. Rip Out The Wings Of A Butterfly

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
Heaven ablaze in our eyes
We're standing still in time
The blood on our hands is the wine
We offer as sacrifice

[Chorus]
Come on, and show them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul

This endless mercy mile
We're crawling side by side
With hell freezing over in our eyes
Gods kneel before our crime

[Chorus]
Come on and show, them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
Don't let go
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
For your soul

[Chorus]
Come on and show them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
Don't let go
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
For your soul
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
Don't let go (my love)
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul


03. Behind The Crimson Door

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
Covered the carcass of time with flowers
To send the scent of blame to the grave
Set the darkest thoughts on fire
And watched the ashes climb to Heaven's gates

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
While the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me" (Death of me)
"Your love will be the death of me"

Death served wine for lovers
Brought from the world where devils reign
And intoxicated angels with sorrow
They witnessed in the eyes of their slaves

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
While the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me" (Death of me)
"Your love will be the death of me"

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
while the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me" (Death of me)
"Your love will be the death of me"

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
while the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me" (Death of me)
"Your love will be the death of me"

We hide behind the crimson door
We hide behind the crimson door
We hide behind the crimson door
We hide behind the crimson door


04. Killing Loneliness

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
Memories, sharp as daggers
Pierce into the flesh of today
The suicide of love took away all that matters
And buried the remains in an unmarked grave in your heart

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness (Killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me,
Oh, I'm killing loneliness with you
The killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness

Nailed to a cross, together
As solitude begs us to stay
And we disappear in the lie, forever
And denounce the power of death over our souls and secret words are said to start a war

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness (Killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me
Oh, I'm killing loneliness with you
The killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness (I'm killing loneliness)

I'm killing loneliness

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness (Killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me
Oh, I'm killing loneliness with you
The killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness

I'm killing loneliness with you
I'm killing loneliness with you
Killing loneliness with you
Killing loneliness with you

Killing loneliness
Killing loneliness


05. Dark Light

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
Shivers run through the spine
Of hope as she cries
The poisoned tears of a life denied
In the raven-black night
Holding hands with

Dark light
Come shine in her lost heart tonight
And blind
All fears that haunt her with
Your smile
Dark Light

In oblivions garden
Her body's on fire
Writhing to towards the angel defiled
To learn how to die
In peace with her god

Dark light
Come shine in her lost heart tonight
And blind
All fears that haunt her with
Your smile
Dark Light


06. Drunk On Shadows

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
Hiding underneath
The veil of broken dreams
We find her weeping

On her once white wings
She'll be carrying the weight of our deeds
And she bleeds for love
Forever gone

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie

Finding souls to feed
The nightside of Eden
We see her struggling
For her love's
Last breath and walk off

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie

She's blinded by the fear
Of life and death and everything in between
We smile when she cries a river of tears
A mirror we see nothing but a reflection of heaven so far away

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
So alive
(Drunk on shadows)
So alive


07. Under The Rose

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
I dream of the winter in my heart turning to spring
While the ice gives way under my feet
And so I drown with the sun

I've been burning in water and drowning in flame
To prove you wrong and scare you away
I admit my defeat and want back home
In your heart under the rose

I open my eyes with a sigh of relief
As the warmth of summer sunlight dances around me
And I see you with dead leaves in your hands

I've been burning in water and drowning in flame
To prove you wrong and scare you away
I admit my defeat and want back home
In your heart under the rose (Repeat 3x)

Your heart under the rose
Your heart under the rose
Your heart under the rose
Your heart under the rose


08. Play Dead

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
A moth into a butterfly
And a lie into the sweetest truth
I'm so afraid of life

I try
To call your name but I'm
Silenced by the fear of dying in your heart once again

I see the seasons changing
And in the heart of this autumn I fall
With the leaves from the trees

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away

I cry
Like god cries the rain
And I'm just one step away
From the end of today

I see the reasons changing
And in the warmth of the past I crawl
Scorched by the shame

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away
And I stay dead
Until you veil my scars and say goodbye to fate
Before it's too late
Before it's too late

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away
I stay dead
Until you veil my scars and say goodbye to fate
I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away
Before it's too late


09. Face Of God

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
I'm drained but aching for more
And the devil inside is reading
The words of the saddest poem
To be engraved on the stone of my grave

I'd kill to share your pain
(And carry the shame)
And sell my soul for you just to say

I dream what you're dreaming
And feel what you're feeling
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of god

Nothing will be enough
For the ones who keep on stumbling
In the garden of withering trust
We found the courage to leave

Oh I'd take my life for your kiss
(Grant me my wish)
And lose it all to take you across the abyss

I dream what you're dreaming
And feel what you're feeling
Love's that shadow on the wall
With the face of god

You dream what I'm dreaming
And see what I'm seeing
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the Face of God

Labyrinth in a shape of a heart
Love's secret architecture
I find myself to be lost in the
Arms of your fate

I'd kill to share you pain
(please let me)
And sell my soul for you just to say
Love's name in vain
Again and again

I dream what you're dreaming
And feel what you're feeling
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of god

You dream what I'm dreaming
And see what I'm seeing
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of god
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of
(Face of)
The face of
(Face of)
God

(Face of)
God


10. In The Night Side Of Eden

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
Divided we stand in the light of a frozen sun
Cursing the gods we have become

We steal the fire from a sacred heart
And bleed the wine unholy
We fall in love with the serpent's song
And fear nothing

In the nightside of Eden
We're born again dead
Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever we'll be crucified to a dream
In the nightside of Eden

Deranged, we're tearing away the petals of desire
Learning the mathematics of evil by heart

We deceive ourselves to start a war
Within the realm of senses
And descend to the circle number four
Where we are nothing

In the nightside of Eden
We're born again dead
Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever we'll be crucified to a dream
In the nightside of Eden


11. Venus (In Our Blood)

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
Her heaven's a lie to those who threw away the key
Her god is alive and well when the higher believes
And you can't bend the river of her dreams
Or understand the divine words she speaks

Venus denies your severing tides above dark waters
You can't quench her thirst with the fear hiding away from the day
Venus denies you in your dark waters
The moon kissed the sun and now we hold her in our blood

Her savior was never on a cross pierced with nails
Thirty pieces of silver never retraced her mistake
She'll always be free from the arms of your sins
That made you weak as your world started crumbling

Venus denies your severing tides above dark waters
You can't quench her thirst with the fear hiding away from the day
Venus denies you in your dark waters
The moon kissed the sun and now we hold her in our blood

(She's in our blood)
Venus denies your severing tides above dark waters
You can't quench her thirst with the fear hiding away from the day
The Venus denies you in your dark waters
The moon kissed the sun and now we hold her in our blood
In our blood
In our blood
In our blood
(She's in our blood)


12. The Cage

Music & lyrics by Ville Valo
For years I've seen you fighting
Against your heart
Living like you're dying
So far from the sun

Waiting for a guardian angel
To lead you through the dangers
That lie ahead on your way
Towards tomorrows arms

Tears have turned from sweet to sour
And hours to days
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world's embrace
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage

We all have our fears but yours are
The scariest of them all
Lift your head and let us taste
The horror you adore

And it all starts to makes sense
All the blood wisely shed
Just wait until the truth comes
Knocking on your door

Tears have turned from sweet to sour
And hours to days
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world's embrace
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage you're locked in

Tears have turned from sweet to sour
And hours to days
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world's embrace
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage you've locked yourself in
