Heart beats on the fault line of,
Love and doubt and wasted time,
And I'm not here to show you up,
Break you down or change your mind,
There's nothing we haven't burned,
But still this fire makes no light and no heat,
I have been around the world and riding on the edge of something,
Til the dawn was weak,

Come in darling, stay a while,
Stay away from God and thieves,
There is consolation in the human failure of our dreams,
Come around on the far side of hate and hurt and misery,
With my arms empty,
They wait for you like soldiers in a war,
Like the cross waited for Constantine,

Come and let her hear,
The werewolves if she wants to,
Howling at the moon,
Waiting for the sweet embraceable you,
Come and let her steer,
Against the tide with sad, slow tunes,
She might have a way out of here,

You've been standing here a while,
Down among the city lights,
Shuffle through the bright streets of St. Petersburg,
Summer white nights,
And I just want to hold you up,
Face pressed to the velvet sky,
So you can hear heaven answer,
Every question you've ever had save the ones you wanted me to ask,

Chorus

She might have enough to fear,

She is running away,
With the dust and bones of the last crusade,
Reaching across these oceans and fields,
With a silent sway,
She is coming home on the last train,
From this fallen kingdom,

Chorus

    General CommentReally, no comments on this song? It's one of their best. I have no idea what it's about, except that its about someone that is genuinely loved and there've been a few mistakes made by both parties. There is devotion and purity there.

    It's a lovely song.

    My InterpretationI have no idea if this is on the right track or not, but here's what I think:

    I see him talking to a girl who's been sort of trapped in her overbearing parents' world. In the first verse, he talks to the parents, telling him how he likes/loves their daughter and he's not going to stop. They've been through this before though. In the second verse, he asks her to come with him and get away from the "hate and hurt and misery." In the chorus, he is speaking again to the parents and tells them to "let her hear the werewolves if she wants to." Let her go out in the world if that's what she wants.
