13 Gothic Lovesongs For Valentine's Day

Goth is characterised by its dark romantic sensuality, so it's not surprising that in its musical form it offers no shortage of lovesongs - however tragic some of them may be. It's not all lost love, bleeding hearts and lovers torn apart, though. Here are 13 of the best tracks for a deep, dark and passionate Valentine's Day.

"However far away
I will always love you"

12.  Clan of Xymox - A Day

"I think you're the most important
To me, to me"

"No one but you could ever fill my night
Be the sunlight in my every day"

10. Type O Negative - Love You To Death

"I beg to serve, your wish is my law,
Now close those eyes and let me love you to death."

9. For My Pain... - Dancer In The Dark

"This loneliness is killing me
Is there a place we both can live?"

8. My Dying Bride - For You

"Cover me with you, over me, under you
Pull me in to you as one we lay entwined"

7. Ikon - Black Roses

"And in my dying hour
She gives me black roses"

6. London After Midnight - Sacrifice

"I could never put in to words,
What it is you mean to me..."

5. Fields of the Nephilim - Love Under Will

Lay down lay down lay down with me"

Some kind of angel come inside"

So wide a sea, may I overcome"

Take my hands, 'til the sun begins to shine"

For my taste for my lust"
