Desdemona is a reference to a character Shakespearean in the play Othello....
Rain falls on a sleepy southern town
The midnight moon burning brightly
Memories rush in like a river forlorn
As you lay sleeping without me

Highway song keeps me rollin' on
Still I long for you

Desdemona, I will be your only one
Oh yeah

And I make my living pouring out my pain
Trying to make it through another day
Arms reach for me on the wind I can feel them
They're a thousand miles away

Your eyes remind me of everything beautiful and blue
And I won't feel myself till I'm with you

Desdemona, I will be your only one
Oh yeah

So hold a candle till the darkness fades
Night time sleeps but not for long
My heart is pounding like the ocean
My soul's empty as the sky
But I know, someday I'll be coming home

Time goes by the twinkling of an eye
Still I pine for you

Desdemona, I will be your only one
I just wanna be, oh, your only one
I just wanna be your only one
Your only one

    Song MeaningI can't believe no one's commented on this! I love this song way too much, but first off, a correction - I'm pretty sure that "nightime sleeps until dawn" should be "nighttime sleeps, but not for long."

    I'm kind of tired so I find it kind of hard to interpret it as what he meant when it was written, but to me, it has a special meaning. It seems like no one I meet in real life compares to the people I meet through weird ways online, and I usually end up falling for them, hard. This song seems to be talking about a large physical distance between two people, which seems to be an awful motif in my life as of late. This song doesn't depress me, but it certainly puts me in a soulful mood.
