"All 'cause of You" as written by and Candice Night Ritchie Blackmore....
I've been sinking through the drain of love,
Lift my eyes to skies of up above,
Listen to me this is how I feel,
Since I knew you all my thoughts are real,
You're the only one I wanna do,
Everything's new,
And it's all 'cause of you.

I've been moving cause my heart is true,
Telling everyone I know bout you,
Tell your mama that you won't be home,
Let your daddy know you're not alone,

All I wanna do is make you mine,
I said I'd love you honey anytime,
Don't believe the things they say about me,
And all those things you know I'd never be,
You're the only one I wanna do,
Everything's new,
And it's all 'cause of you.

Now honey, honey, honey I can walk, walk, walk,
I caught you kneeling in the alley with the baby talk,
Now listen to me baby if you can't sit still,
I know your sister will.

There ain't no blood on my hands, love,
There ain't no blood on my hands, love,
There ain't no blood on my hands, love,
The sun is up and I understand it's me.

I've been moving 'cause my heart is true,
Telling everyone I know 'bout you,
Tell your mama that you won't be home,
Let your daddy know you're not alone,

All I wanna do is make you mine,
I said I'd love you honey anytime,
Don't believe the things they say about me,
And all those things you know I'd never be,
You're the only one I wanna do,
Everything's new,
And it's all 'cause of you.

Now honey, honey, honey I can walk, walk, walk,
I caught you kneeling in the alley with the baby talk,
Now listen to me baby if you can't sit still,
I know your sister will.

There ain't no blood on my hands, love,
There ain't no blood on my hands, love,
There ain't no blood on my hands, love,
The sun is up and I understand it's me.

And its all 'cause of you.

    General CommentI heard this song in You, Me and Dupree, and not knowing the artist or title, I quickly took out my cell phone and text messaged myself the line "drain of love". ANYWAYS, after finding the song's information, I LOVE IT. (Off topic? YESSUM.)

    The meaning of this song is pretty much clear: The guy (singer) found a girl he thinks he loves, but he's never been one to settle down or he's been a bit of a "bad boy", so others are warning the girl against him. Either way, he thinks he's been changed (for the better) by this girl, and he's telling her.

    General CommentI understand where you guys are coming from, but what about the last verse?

    "I caught you kneeling in the alley with the baby talk,
    now listen to me baby if you can't sit still,
    I know your sister will.

    there ain't no blood on my hands, love,"

    I think that means he was a 'bad' guy, but now he's so in love, then when he finds out his girlfriend is cheating, he's not terribly hurt because he's done that to someone before, and being with her sister would be something he'd do (hence the bad boy streak).
    and "there ain't no blood on my hands love" means that he's not the guilty one here--she is.

    General CommentI think he's saying that he met someone new that he can really fall for, and is in love with and because of that he's leaving his past behind for her. Unfortunately, though, he caught her cheating and he's saying in the line:
    "now listen to me baby if you can't sit still,
    I know your sister will.'"

    "Sit still", to me, means stay committed to the relationship and he's threatening go for her sister, which probably means she has her eye on him as well. And the last part:
    "There ain't no blood on my hands, love,"
    She probably got bad about that last remark, and he's reminding her that she's the guilty one here, not him.

    Just a few thoughts. :)
