Everytime I Die
Children of Bodom Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ow
Oh

The faint blaze of the candle of my life
Slowly dying like a fire in a pouring rain
No sparks of hope inside
No shooting stars on my sky
On broken wings, no flying high

Another night, another demise
Cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice
You'll let the wind blow out the light
'Cause it gets more painful everytime I die

Out of strength to fight
I cannot take another night
I cannot take it no more
Lust of light slips through my fingers
Like blood on my arms
Black candle wax has buried me

Another night, another demise
Cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice




You'll let the wind blow out the light
'Cause it gets more painful everytime I die

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Children of Bodom's song Everytime I Die depict the feelings of someone who is slowly losing the will to live. The metaphor of a candle slowly dying in a pouring rain illustrates the person's diminishing life force, and the lack of hope or shooting stars on the sky further indicates the bleakness of their situation. The image of broken wings and the inability to fly high portray a sense of helplessness and defeat.


The second verse of the song portrays the singer as having given up all strength to fight, and the repetition of the phrase "another night, another demise" emphasizes the cyclical nature of their pain. The cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice serves as a contrast to the warmth and comfort of a lit candle, and the singer feels that every time they "die," it gets more painful. The lust of light slipping through their fingers is further evidence of a desperate need for something to hold onto, but like blood on their arms, it is just out of reach. The image of being buried by black candle wax symbolizes the singer's acceptance of the inevitability of their death.


The overall message of this song is a powerful one, and the lyrics speak to anyone who has ever felt overwhelmed by the struggles of life. The hopelessness of the situation is palpable throughout, and the stark language and vivid imagery make for a haunting listening experience.

The faint blaze of the candle of my life,
slowly dying like a fire in a pouring rain.
No sparks of hope inside,
no shooting stars on my sky.
On broken wings, no flying high...

Another night, another demise,
Cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice...
I'll let the wind blow out the light
cause its gets more painful every time I die.

Out of strength to fight.
I cannot take another night.
I cannot take it no more.
Lust of light slips through my fingers
like blood on my arms.
Black candle wax has buried me...

Another night, another demise,
Cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice...
I'll let the wind blow out the light
cause its gets more painful every time I die.
