Love Like Winter
by AFI

Album: Decemberunderground (2006)
Charted: 68
  • Warn your warmth to turn away
    Here, it's December

    Press your lips to the sculptures
    And surely you'll stay
    Love like winter

    For of sugar and ice
    I am made
    I am made

    It's in the blood
    It's in the blood
    I met my love before I was born
    He wanted love
    I taste of blood
    He bit my lip, and drank my warmth
    From years before
    From years before

    She exhales vanilla lace
    I barely dreamt her yesterday (yesterday)
    Read the lines in the mirror through
    The lipstick trace
    Por siempre

    She said, "It seems you're somewhere, far away," to his face


    Love like winter, oh, oh
    Love like winter
    Three, four
