Lend your love to me tonight
Don't ask me who or what is right
I have no strenght I cannot fight
Just flood my darkness with your light
I need no face I need no name
No martyr's artificial shame
No crucifix I am not lame
And yet I ache to feel the flame
Arrest the sun and shoot the moon
The lamp of laughter dies too soon
To live reflected in a spoon
Makes it too hard to stay in tune
Believe me

Unlock the door and unbar the gate
I'll write I love you on the slate
And while St. Peter's thieves debate
The price of time I will not wait
Or let the star blind road of fate
Confuse me
Abuse me
Misuse me

Release my soul release my eyes
A clock unwinds a flower dies
Dishonesty disqualifies
You win the race but lose the prize
A tattered cloak behind the throne
It is unseen it is not known
Behind this face I am alone
I would give everything I own
To touch you...

Just lend your love to me once more
Don't ask me what I came back for
Just watch the moonlight cross the floor
And as your blood begins to roar
You'll feel your senses spin and soar
You will become my meteor
Divine and universal whore
Complete me

    My InterpretationOne of the most incredible lyrics ever...Gregg & Pete presented a highly consistently, carefully elaborated symphonic poem ...the main sources are Biblical references: Just flood my darkness with your light (prayer to G-d for the needed partner);unlock the gate (of Heaven); don't ask me who or what is right (only G-d knows); Divine and universal whore...complete me (allusion to Eve and the original sin)...lRelease my soul release my eyes, A clock unwinds a flower dies, Dishonesty disqualifies, You win the race but lose the prize (Divine fairness).
    Well, the human need for company, in my case -respectfully- I did discover I loved one outstanding lovely woman.
