I think about a lonely real world
But where my thoughts are bound
Oh I just can't tell
And oh, there's nothin' I wouldn't do to have ya now
For only one more night spent into your magic dust

Don't you know that this is real love
Baby I'm waitin' to go
Don't you know that this thing's real
Baby I'm achin' to know
And oh, as far as I can see love
Baby I ain't ready to tow
Your heavy charms from broken deals

Chorus:
To steal those arms from the carousel
We hear those drums and we're setting sail
If the fear comes down, then you better start makin' it right
'Cause things might be carrying over
We hear those chimes from the wedding bell
And see that sign from the old hotel
The DJ's sayin' on your radio player tonight
Things might be carrying over

Now to settle down, well that takes some real work
If you drown in the tides, oh will you wish from the well
We're holdin' out in a fortress of mirrors, ya know
For only one more night spent into your magic lust

Don't you know that I still feel love
Baby I'm comin' to you
Don't you know that I still can feel
Baby are we startin' anew
And as long as I can breathe love
Baby will you carry me through
Oh it was never a question of your frozen heels

    General CommentThis is such a good song. There is a live clean version on the Family Values Tour 2006 CD. I think I like that one better. And, I also heard that Elijah did it acoustic on the Howard Stern show. Anyway, as for the meaning, I don't really know how to put it into words at this time. It's just a feeling. My wife and I were jamming to it the other night and she just started balling and she didn't even know why. Take care all you Legions out there.

    General Commenti think this song is about the lady in the relationship towing doubt and emotional baggage from past relationships, and he's reassuring her that though there are many reminders of her past, he wants her to look foward, not back.
