Darling what's your name
And can you hear me?
Tell me why you're out so late alone,
The diamonds sparkle in your face I hold you,
The gravel glistens black and red below

[Chorus:]
Hallow, you drift into the night
Hallow-girl
When I close my eyes I see you
When I close my eyes you're here
In the dead of the night I feel you
When I open my eyes you disappear

The metal wraps itself around your bones
And when it penetrates you it feels cold

As you were born you leave this world alone
A stranger on an unfamiliar road
That roaring engine sings you: Hallelujah
The broken headlamp lights your path to God

[Chorus:]
Hallow, you drift into the night
Hallow-girl
When I close my eyes I see you
When I close my eyes you're here
In the dead of the night I feel you
When I open my eyes you disappear

Hallow, you drift into the light

Hallow go home
But when I close my eyes I see you
When I close my eyes you're here
In the dead of the night I feel you
When I open my eyes you disappear

    My InterpretationThe singer is remembering a girl who has died in a road accident. Perhaps he was the driver who knocked her down, and her ghost ("hallow") is haunting him.
