I got superstition
Ruling my decision
You are my religion
Haven't got a prayer

So just give me the sign and I'll follow you
When every angel's guarding you
You are my religion
Haven't got a prayer

I don't want to wait
To save your life
I think I know a way
To make things right

Just give me the sign and I'll come for you
Give me the sign and I'll be your rescue, baby
I'll run your way when I hear you calling me

Give me the sign and I'll come for you
Give me the sign and I'll be your rescue, baby
I'll run your way when I hear you calling out for me

Walking under ladders
Nothing really matters
There could be disaster
I don't really care

So just give me the sign and I'll follow you
When every angel's guarding you
There could be disaster
I don't really care

I don't want to wait
To save your life
I think I know a way
To make things right

Just give me the sign and I'll come for you
Give me the sign and I'll be your rescue, baby
I'll run your way when I hear you calling me

Give me the sign and I'll come for you
Give me the sign and I'll be your rescue, baby
I'll run your way when I hear you calling out

For me
For me

I don't want to wait
To save your life
I think I know a way
To make things right

Just give me the sign
Give me the sign
Give me the sign
Just give me the sign

Just give me the sign and I'll come for you
Give me the sign and I'll be your rescue, baby
I'll run your way when I hear you calling me

Give me the sign and I'll come for you
Give me the sign and I'll be your rescue, baby
I'll run your way when I hear you calling out for me
Give me the sign

Give me the sign
Give me the sign
Give me the sign

    General Comment:A nice and simple meaning here, i think.
    It's most likely about some chick he loves and is really devoted to (although it could fit to anybody who is a loved one i guess, relative, friend, yeah).

    I think something's wrong in whatever relationship it is, and the person he's singing to has been in some kind of trouble. However, because of the fault in the relationship he can't just up and go and help her (perhaps they just broke up and put a distance between each other?). Instead, he has to wait for him/her to "give me the sign" so that he can go and help her. But it sucks for him, because he "doesnt wanna wait to save your life" even though he kinda has to, and thinks he knows "a way to make things right".

    That's my opinion :)

    General Comment:I think songs have different meanings for different people....In my humble opinion, I think that this is about loving someone too much. Kind of nagging them, if u get me. I think he is trying to say, give me the sign and I will leave, or stay with you.....just my opinion....Surprised nobody said it about kurt yet....

    General Comment:I agree that it's about love, just he's saying that he'll do whatever she wants, she just has to say when.

    This song is ace, hell it would probably be a great single.

    General Comment:well i kinda agree with all you guys...
    but when i first listened to this amazing song, i instantly struck me that it must have been about me.
    i think it might describe s.o. desperately in love with s.o. else without him/her knowing, you see?!
    you just don't know what she/he feels in return and somehow wait for "a sign" :)
    and if signs are positive the "i" just believes that it's gonna be legen...wait for it...daaaaary XD
    or in the words of meat loaf: "i would do anything for love" ;)
