"Faded" as written by and Greg Dulli....
(dulli)
You can believe in me, baby
Can I believe in you?
What you don't know
Can hurt you, child
All the things a mind can
Do to you

If I go bad
From time to time
Love to love but love is not
My only crime
Bathe the path, shine the light
Better get your ass up on
The mountain, baby
I'll take you up tonight

Faded
This I feel
Behind the blue clouds
I remain concealed
Lord, lift me out of the night
Come on, look down
And see the mess I'm in tonight

You can believe in me, baby
Can I believe in you?
I wish I could remember what
You said, when I said
Enough

You said
Good boy... bad boy... killjoy...
Get your ass over here, boy
And since I know
Myself so well
Don't breathe a word
Don't you ever tell

You can believe in me, baby
Can I believe in you?
That secret's gonna kill you
In the end
It's gonna kill
You

    My InterpretationI think this song is explained in the final stanza *(You can believe in me, baby
    Can I believe in you?
    That secret's gonna kill you
    In the end
    It's gonna kill
    You)*
    I think it's about a guy who is having an affair with a married woman and he is also married as well so it's beyond complicated. (That secret's gonna kill you in the end)
    *(You can believe in me, baby
    Can I believe in you?
    I wish I could remember what
    You said, when I said
    Enough)*
    Here he's trying to convince her to go along with the affair and that she can believe in him, at the same time he also wrestles with the idea and is considering whether it's gone to far (when I said enough)
    *(
    You said
    Good boy... bad boy... killjoy...
    Get your ass over here, boy
    And since I know
    Myself so well
    Don't breathe a word
    Don't you ever tell)*
    In this stanza she's now the one who is pushing the affair to continue and he's the one unsure but she convinces him to continue on with it and to keep it secret (Don't breath a word, Don't ever tell)

    General CommentI saw the Twilight Singers back in October and Greg Dulli came out of nowhere with this one to close the night out. Quite the pleasant surprise, this sexy, sexy song.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely stunning! It's not just a Whigs' classic... it should be a classic fullstop! It's the most uplifting song of redemption I've ever heard. It's obvious he's been through some very tough times. Whenever I'm going through tough times, I listen to this. The perfect end to a perfect album about going down... then back up again. The song is so good, it doesn't feel like 8 minutes....
