Drunk on Shadows
HIM Lyrics


Hiding underneath
The veil of broken dreams
We find her weeping

On her once white wings
She will be carrying the weight of our deeds
And she bleeds for love
Forever gone

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in life

Finding souls to feed
The night side of Eden
We see the struggling
For her love's
Last breath and walk off

Drunk on shadows and lost in life
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in life

She's blinded by the fear
Of life and death and everything in between
We smile when she cries a river of tears
A mirror where we see nothing but a reflection of heaven too far away

Drunk on shadows and lost in life
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in life
So alive
(Drunk on shadows)
So alive

Unpopular opinion; my favorite song by HIM, hands down. I love all the variety of instrumentals and of course the lyrics. Drunk on shadows & lost in a lie 🖤

Lenny Cash

3:08 really hits for me. 👍

An album to which I always return with the same passion and devotion. Especially this song. Supernatural music just like lyrics. Listening to it as if I’m orbiting the Jupiter. Better said the whole Universe. So encrypted and realistic at the same time.. Adore that “ contradiction”. Sounds so fresh and lovely. Always.

It feels so odd to listen to this after not having heard anything for 10 years.

this sounds corny as hell but this band really kept me going when i was really depressed and when i really didn't see a future for myself, i started using drugs and alcohol as "medication" and after abusing both of those became a problem a really good friend of mine took me on a holiday for a week, no drugs no alcohol, hell not even cigarettes, first 3 days were the hardest days of my life.. 4th day we went to a live performance of HIM, it was in a small bar, maybe 25 people were in that night and at the first note they played, i got shivers, started to get really emotional and after just 2 songs i really felt that i had to change every single thing in my life otherwise i wouldn't make it past 23.. the music hit me so hard that evening and still does to this day this band really changed my life a full 180 degrees around.. i quit the drugs, alcohol and the overall toxic lifestyle i was living, only bad habit im still guilty of is smoking cigarettes but at least i live a normal, happy, healthy life.. and all of that.. thanks to this amazing band
