You're going down
And it feels good
But you ain't wearing
What you should
All the people that you've had?
The Time is over

Count your blessings
Count the times
You forgot their names
Committed the crimes
All the people that you've had?
The time over

Oh ! it's time to make amend's
Cos' you've been
Burning the candle at both ends

Oh! it 's time to make amends
Cos' you've been
Burning the candle at both ends

    General CommentI agree with plumgirl7. All the lines are very sexual.

    But on a more general level i think the song is just about your past finnaly catching up to you. You've wrong people many a times, and gotten away with it, but now your going to pay for it. The key line "You've been burning the candle at both ends". Which is like, you've betrayed all your freinds and hurt your enemies, and now you have nowhere left to run.
