Love Like Winter Lyrics
Here it's December,
Everyday. [small girlish echo:] I like that
Press your lips to the sculptures,
And surely you'll stay. [distant:] love like winter
For of sugar and ice,
I am made. I am made

I agree with most of the posts.
*The cold and harsh reality of love,
*You're one love is set out for you,
*He has lost his one love,
*This one love made him feel so amazing "she bit my lip and drank my war from years before", she made him forget about all of the bad things in his past.
*Now that she has left him, there is nothing but the harsh and cold of winter everyday.
*Now that he has no one all he feels is hopelessness (hence the symbolism of the girl in the video)
I just grouped most of the other posts and added a few ideas of my own. These are just my ideas, AFI's lyrics do not have one fixed theme, so you can think of the lyrics as YOU see fit.

i think it is a positive thing! when davey sings she bit my lip and drank my wars from years before... He means that this girl took the pain away from him! but I don't get the whole he she thing!

the use of him and her is used for AFI's fans who may be female of male.

The winter is generally cold. In the winter you wish for warmth. You search for warmth. If this love is like winter it's cold, but it wants warmth. Maybe it's clinging to any wartmth it can find. Who knows for sure? That's just my take.

I think this song is just saying that love isn't what movies and the media actually portray it to be, it can be much more painful hence the 'winter'.
Movies say its all good and everything and its nice and lovey dovey, sure this is the case sometimes but there's also the harsh bits like fighting and all that just like in winter there's heaps of dull moments.
not sure if I'm right or not its just what I think

the song is abviously about harsh love..hence the title Love Like Winter. Davey Havok said in interview however that the girl in the video represents hopelessness. So the song is probably less about cold love and more about a complete and total lack of love.
