Songfacts®:

  • This short ballad is about two partners who meet at a young age and stay together for all their lives. Sonata Arctica's lead singer, Tony Kakko, explained: "I've been at times asked how all Sonata love songs are just cruel and sad and something is, or goes, always wrong. Well: Happiness is boring. That's why all the TV series are full of drama. 25 seasons of f--king sunshine and ice cream does not sell."

    "Anyway, this is my attempt to navigate the uncharted waters of Happy. Sometimes you see these really old couples, who walk hand in hand, like they've done since they were mere kids. 'Love' is a song about that lifelong love we all would deserve. It's just beautiful. And rare."
