What could you do with those hands, my love?
What could you do with those hands, my love?
Could you make me something I never seen before?
Oh god, I need to see something I never seen before.

What could you do with those lips, my love?
What could you do with those lips, my love?
There's so many things I could think of.
So many wonderful things I could think of.

Breathe life into this corpse
Drive him down to the bay.
Dip his hand into the water.
And walk away.

Let him stand there for awhile.
Think about what to do.
Don't ask any questions.
It comes back to you.

What could you do with that heart, my love?
What could you do with that heart, my love?
Could you find some room for both of us?
Please find some room for both of us.

Please find some room for both of us.
Oh, please find some room for both of us.

    My InterpretationThis song came to me at a time in my life where I did not know what love was anymore. I didnt believe. But it says something about how much potential a couple can have in love, and this guy does not have the person that he wants, yet. But he knows that she is the one, and that she could "breathe life into t(his) corpse". The bridge is so powerful and he explains how this person has basically saved his life by showing him love and showing his hand to the water. If you find the right person it can save your life.
