Strange imaginations, children hide your secrets well
Is it not temptation, makes you kiss and makes you tell?
There's a traveler on the airwaves, and he's pleading for my heart
Light up all the candles, I'm still in the dark

Hurry operator, get redemption on the line
Pull back the curtains, I think I recognize those eyes
If love is so criminal, then my penance due
'Cause I'm still holding onto letters written straight to you

[Chorus]
Oh, won't you save me, father sun, father sun
I need to tell you that my life is on the run
And now you know that you're the only one
Oh, please forgive me, father sun, father sun

I swore I needed you in the back of my mind
Laid the beads upon the table, right beside the wine
It seems that we say forever, but forever's just a word
"And I will be coming back for you" is all I heard [Chorus]
Please don't forget me, father sun, father sun

I think I hear him whispering
"Put your hand in my hand and you won't feel a thing"

[Chorus]

Oh won't you save me, father sun, father sun
I need to tell you that my life is on the run
And now you know that you're the only one
Oh won't you save me, father sun, father sun
Oh won't you save me, father sun, father sun

Oh won't you save me, save me, save me
save me, save me, father sun

    General CommentThis is a good song, very mystical. Does anyone have any thoughts on what it means? It sounds like it means different things,just random, confused thoughts written thoughts starting out with a one lover talking of their love for another. But it brings to mind some kind of satanic or spirit ritual, ("Light up all the candles".....table, right beside the wine-like a sacrificial table). But then it sounds like its a play on words talking abotu salvation Father "Son"...won't you "save "me Father sun. it's very new age like it's talking about sun worship, also. There's a version by Wynonna, too. Good song, but a bit confusing.
