Love Like Winter
by AFI

Album: Decemberunderground (2006)
Charted: 68

Songfacts®:

  • Like a screenplay for a movie, this song seems to be a script for the music video, which outstanding cinematography and features model Christina Petrovic. Set in a cold, mystical land, the mysterious Petrovic lures lead singer Davey Havok to his death, where she joins him under the ice he falls through. The song and video explore the concept of eternity, and the theme of winter as the end of life.
  • The lyrics "Por Siempre" are Spanish for "For Always." >>
