Shock rocker Marilyn Manson's forthcoming marriage to Dita Von Teese has transformed his music from dark Satanic tracks to heartfelt outpourings of love.

Manson proposed to the burlesque dancer last year (04) and confesses the romance has had a huge effect on the theme of his untitled upcoming disc.

He says, "The lyrics have the most romantic feel to them. This is a desperate and crippling desire for romance - not in the romance sense of a Reese Witherspoon movie, but in the sense of living your life like a film and enjoying it that way.

"I've found a woman I can relate to. That's something - and I don't even feel sappy saying it - that, if anyone has that, don't lose it, because it's probably the only thing that you can ever really find any satisfaction from."
