Careful of words
They are so meaningful
You discover
Like the blues from her breath
His genius is dead
Happy and willing to die
For your love
Happy and willing to die

Back in the bedroom
It's four a.m.
Hear the clatter
From the neighbors upstairs
Happy and willing to die
For your love
Happy and willing to die

Laid off for weeks now
And feel the sore
Still I'm tireless
From the smell of you
Happy and willing to die
For your love
Happy and willing, still am
So come

I won't make a sound
I sleep on the floor
Lay on the couch
Put yourself out
I sleep on the floor
Lay on the couch
Put yourself out
Put yourself out

Sounds so absurd
Just to be lying here
One more hour
And I'm gone
Happy and willing to die
For your love
Happy and willing to die

I won't make a sound
I sleep on the floor
Lay on the couch
Put yourself out
I sleep on the floor
Lay on the couch
Put yourself out
Put yourself out

Say it's okay
Say it's alright
Tonight
Say it's okay
Say it's alright
Tonight

    General CommentI'm fairly sure the line is -
    Still in tatters from the smell of you

    He sounds anything but tireless from the lyrics of the song!

    My InterpretationIt's about breaking up but not being able to let go of the other person (can't work, obsessing over the end). He's looking for just one more night before leaving, its not even sexual, he just can't think about being without.
