If I stay too long
Would you ask me not to go?
When I squeeze to hard
Would you stop and tell me so; I never seem to know
If I push to far, babe
It just don't make things right tonight
If just tonight, everything's all right

I hope I die tonight
Everything's too perfect now, my breath away
Going in one direction: you
Hope I die tonight

A bitter fruit to swallow
Are you afraid to take it whole?
A simple truth to follow
A simple truth we'll never know
The simple things we just let go
I bite my tongue to speak now
Afraid that this will go too fast
These perfect moments never last

And if I die tonight
That would be all right with me, my breath away
Going in one direction: you
Hope I die tonight
Everything is easy here
Hope I die tonight
Better that than without you
Hope I die tonight, yeah

Why is my heart always angry?
My heart is always filled with rain
Your kisses seem to warm the rain

Don't believe in morning
Never see it anyway
There is no tomorrow
And there never was today
Let's burn tonight, not fade away

I hope I die tonight
Everything's too perfect now, my breath away
Going in one direction: you
Hope I die tonight
Everything is easy here
I hope I die tonight
Better that than without you
I hope I die tonight, yeah
Everything's too perfect now

Oh, never fade away, no

    General CommentI read something from Hennessey where he said this song was about a night he spent at home with his wife (or girlfriend, can't remember), last night at home before he had to go on the road, and they had a nice meal and a great evening and he thought things could never be more perfect than that night.
