The final church bell now has rung
Another man stands in his place
A million whores lie in his bed
But his heart’s been out of state

Well Heaven only knows why he dressed in chains
Walked over coals and laid down in flames
Maybe, Darling, so you’d remember his name...

'Cause a voice was crying out
Something so depraved
What’s long kept you from your rest?
Who told you to behave?

Well Heaven only knows why he dressed in chains
Walked over coals and laid down in flames
Maybe, Darling, so you’d remember his name...

There’s a man inside your shoes
And you’re leaving him behind
To moan out the lonesome blues
And flounder in the night

Well Heaven only knows why he dressed in chains
Walked over coals and laid down in flames
Well Heaven only knows why he dressed in chains
Walked over coals and he laid down in flames
Maybe, Darling, so you’d remember his name, you’d remember his name, you’d remember his name, you’d remember his name
