H.I.M: Funeral of Hearts Meaning

Funeral of Hearts Lyrics

Love's the funeral of hearts
And an ode for cruelty
When angels cry blood
On flowers of evil in bloom

The funeral of hearts
And a plea for mercy
When love is a gun
Separating me from you

She was the sun
Shining upon
The tomb of your...

    The song is about the relationship between a man and and a woman and how it changes as the two fall in love with one another. The verse talks about how the two were drawn to one another despite their pasts. As they fall in love, love their feelings threaten who they are as a single entity. The love between them is a gun that kills who they are separately. In their death they are reborn as a couple, or one heart.

    It's about getting hurt and a love triangle or something like that
    And that sometimes love can separate people.

    "she was the sun
    Shining upon
    The tomb of your hopes and dreams so frail
    He was the moon
    Painting you
    With its glow so vulnerable and pale "

    "she was the wind, carrying in
    All the troubles and fears you for years tried to forget
    he was the fire, restless and wild
    And you was like a moth to that flame"

    He= Ville
    She= The bad girlfriend of "you"
    You= A person who's in love with Ville


    or easier:

    Jenn was the sun
    Shining upon
    The tomb of Bam's hopes and dreams so frail
    Ville was the moon
    Painting Bam
    With its glow so vulnerable and pale

    Jenn was the wind, carrying in
    All the troubles and fears Bam for years tried to forget
    Ville was the fire, restless and wild
    And Bam was like a moth to that flame

    yeah I have vivid imagination.. but it makes sense!(in my head)

    It's about being in love with someone but knowing it will never to become more. She's hurting him because he really love her- it reminds me of a friend I fell in love with but we never be a couple and hurts because I'm complete in love with him. So every time I play this it reminds me of him.

    I personally feel that this song represents two friends who are very close having to make a difficult choice

    I always thought this song meant that falling in love can sometimes make your heart die... or it can make our heart dark sometimes. If you get burned by someone you truely love.

    this song has a very complex portrayal ... the heart is a theoretic web of contradicting emotions ... thus the writer here is trying to explain the condition he is currently in .. that exact contradictory state where we all have been... strangled between love and loss (hate and seperation).. even the melody of this song bleeds its own tragic symphony, he loves her and doesnt want to give up on her but at the same time there is something obligating him to do so... in a retreat to a constant dark corner where his true sentiment reflects before an introspective valo ...

    The song could mean many different things to many different minds, but the song writer himself said In the interview in the Love Metal Archives, that the Funeral of Hearts meaning is that people should cherish the good times they had in life, not weep about the bad times.

    This song is about a man and a woman in love, and the balance of good and evil within that love.

    "The funeral of hearts
    And a plea for mercy
    When love is a gun
    Separating me from you"
    Is saying that falling in love with someone can destroy a strong relationship, and that love often ends up disastrous.

    Anytime it talks about "he" or "she", Ville is referring to the lovers.

    Is about a man who is in love with a woman and with a man at the same time... and the pain that it brings along.
    "She was the wind, carrying in
    All the troubles and fears you’ve for years tried to forget
    He was the fire, restless and wild
    And you were like a moth to that flame"

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
