Songs What I Does Like: Valentines edition

Oki, so I made a last minute decision to share some love songs after meri_sielu shared Top Ten Heavy Metal Love Songs on FB. :) But because this wasn't planned, I've basically just picked my favourites out of all the songs in my collection that have love in the title. I'm good.

Note: not all these are happy love songs...

"Love Today", Hannah Fury (listen here)
Dark cabaret / ethereal
USA

Rest assured
I do think it's sad
And I do miss what we had
But I just try to love today
I try to love today

"Love Today", Mika (listen here)
Pop
UK

I've been crying for so long,
Fighting tears just to carry on,
But now, but now, it's gone away.

"You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)", Josh Groban (listen here)
Operatic pop
USA

Don't give up
Because you want to burn bright
If darkness blinds you
I will shine to guide you.

"For Amelie", Leaves' Eyes (listen here)
Symphonic metal
Norway

I held you close
When you fell to the ground
And now you've torn all my hope apart
You could have said goodbye

"Leaves' Eyes", Leaves' Eyes (listen here)
Symphonic metal
Norway

True love lasts forever
I imagine you in a thousand glimpses
Moonlight keeps me safe at night
And I know you're here if I fall

"Beauty of the Beast", Nightwish (listen here)
Symphonic metal
Finland

I fear I will never, never find anyone
I know my greatest pain is yet to come
Will we find each other in the dark
My long lost love?

"Ghost Love Score", Nightwish (listen here)
Symphonic metal
Finland

We used to swim the same moonlit waters
Oceans away from the wakeful day
My fall will be for you
My love will be in you
If you be the one to cut me
I will bleed forever

"Undying Love", Two Steps From Hell (listen here)
Instrumental / trailer music
USA


"Shards Of Love", Woods of Ypres (listen here)
Black metal / doom metal
Canada

Still I'm pouring my heart out to you, trying to get you to stay
And I said, "What about this? What about that? Don't you remember the good times?
What about this? What about that? Don't you remember our life?"
She said, "What about this? And what about that? Don't you remember the hard times?
What about this? And what about that? Don't you remember our lives?"

And this one, because it is the best music video. <3

"King And Lionheart", Of Monsters And Men
Indie-pop
Iceland

And as the world comes to an end
I'll be here to hold your hand
'Cause you're my king and I'm your lionheart.

You're my lionheart
There are times I get distracted girl
By the ways and workings of this world
I think of you as my life line
And I'm glad that I'm yours and you're mine.

I love For Amelie! And Ghost Love Score, I like the live versions better than the studio version, I hadn't seen this version with that singer ^_^
