Buried Alive By Love
by HIM

Album: Love Metal (2003)
Charted: 30
  • Again the burden of losing rest
    Upon my shoulders
    And its weight seems unbearable
    Your tomb is where your heart is,
    I should have told her
    But within Me a secret so terrible

    To cry is to know that you're alive
    But my river of tears has run dry
    I never wanted to fool you, no
    But a cold heart is a dead heart
    And it feels like I've been buried alive by love

    If I should die before I wake
    Pray no one my soul to take
    If I wake before I die,
    Rescue me with your smile

    If I should die before I wake
    Pray no one my soul to take
    If I wake before I die,
    Rescue me with your smile

    The kiss of vanity you blessed me with a spiritual murder
    Fed the gods of war
    Your home is there in the darkness, I should have told her
    Embrace the fire indestructible

    To die is to know that you're alive
    And my river of blood won't run dry
    I never wanted to lose you, no
    But a cold heart is a dead heart
    And it feels like I've been buried alive by love

    If I should die before I wake
    Bring no one my soul to take
    If I wake before I die,
    Rescue me with your smile

    If I should die before I wake
    Pray no one my soul to take
    If I wake before I die,
    Rescue me with your smile

    Oh, it seems to cry is to know that you're alive
    And my river of tears has run dry
    I never wanted to fool you, no
    But a cold heart is a dead heart
    And a desert soul is gone
    A cold heart is a dead heart
    And it feels like I've been buried alive by love

    If I should die before I wake
    Pray no one my soul to take
    If I wake before I die,
    Rescue me with your smile,

    If I should die before I wake
    Pray no one my soul to take
    If I wake before I die,
    Rescue me with your smile

    I've been buried alive by love
    I've been buried alive by love
    Buried alive by love
    I've been buried alive by love
    I've been buried alive by love
    I've been buried alive by love
