When I lost you honey sometimes I think I lost my guts too
And I wish God would send me a word
Send me something I'm afraid to lose
Lying in the heat of the night like prisoners all our lives
I get shivers down my spine and all I want to do is hold you tight

[Chorus]
I swear I'll drive all night just to buy you some shoes
And to taste your tender charms
And I just want to sleep tonight again in your arms

Tonight there's fallen angels and they're waiting for us down in the street
Tonight there's calling strangers,
Hear them crying in defeat.
Let them go, let them go, let them go,
Do their dances of the dead (let'em go right ahead)
You just dry your eyes girl, and c'mon c'mon
C'mon let's go to bed, baby, baby, baby

[Chorus]

There's machines and there's fire waiting on the edge of town
They're out there for hire but baby they can't hurt us now
'Cause you've got, you've got, you've got,
You've got my love, you've got my love
Through the wind, through the rain, the snow, the wind, the rain
You've got, you've got my, my love
Heart and soul

    My Interpretationspeaking of losing someone, wants god to send someone he's afraid to lose, a baby, possibly speaking of a miscarriage or a pregnancy that didn't go as planned? a reach???

    like prisoners all our lives? him and his significant other are prisoners to the fact that they should reproduce..but can't or have failed at the moment. and he wants to put that aside, just sleep in her arms for the moment…thats all he cares about..nothing else..lets go to bed.

    just wants to buy shoes for the baby/sleep in its arms( things normal parents cherish and look forward to). (songs goes back and forth from wanting to be with unforeseen child and significant other he's still with)

    to the both of them..they got his love, heart and soul through everything, especially the one he is still with.
