"Dew in the Grass" as written by and Alex Brown Church....
Here by the river side
I brought my soon-to-be bride
Through the fog and smoke
Watch the geese and the barges float

She's singing the city dawn
Wrap my limbs inside her clear song
Every car passing by slowed to hear my beloved sigh

And the dew in the grass had an electric glow
Yeah, the dew in the grass had an electric glow

And the light cut right through
Through her skin, through her bones
Yeah, the light cut right through where it glows
And it glows

Way up where the lighthouse runs
Heard the crack of the hunters' guns
She held onto my hand
Drew our names in the river sand

And the dew in the grass had an electric glow
Yeah, the dew in the grass had an electric glow

And the light cut right through
Through her skin, through her bones
Yeah, the light cut right through where it glows
And it glows

Coming down in the cold, cold fluorescence
We watched the branches in the water drifting
I said I'd never let it happen to you
I said I'd never let it happen to you

And the hunters coming down won't bother us with their sounds
No, the hunters coming down won't bother us again with their sounds

And the dew in the grass had an electric glow
Yeah, the dew in the grass had an electric glow

And the light cut right through,
Through her skin, through her bones
And the light cut right through where it glows
And it glows

    My InterpretationWell, while listening to this song I had the impression that this is actually a sad history... He was in the woods with his girlfriend (maybe he was going to propose to her there) and some hunters shoot them accidentaly (or not).

    The "I said I'd never let it happen to you" part show us that something bad happened.

    The bullets are "the light" that "cut right through the skin"

    The hunters will not bother them with their sounds anymore because their are together in the afterlife, away from the hunters.

    Maybe the "Coming down in the cold, cold fluorescence" represent their dead bodies sinking in the river at moonlight (the reflexes of the moonlight in the water are the cold fluorescence)
