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

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


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

    General CommentThis song is about redemption.

    The characters have a long love and have built a life together. The wife valued the relationship but the man didn't like he should of, and they feel trapped. She decides to break free and that makes him realize that he would give everything for just one more moment with her, even though she has moved on.

    To his surprise he gets that moment, and through the strength of their union, they become strangers to the fallen and to him are reborn as a couple. As he holds her tight he knows that for her the strangers may be the dance. He pleads with her to not join the fallen's celebration of failure, as if that's the good life. And he confesses to her that he knows that maybe they're not fallen, maybe they are the fire and and she could join that dance.

    But if she wants his soul she has it. They can be redeemed in their love right then and make their respective lives and all they have built a win for each of them and together.

    In the end the music turns hopeful and the big man says the rest of the lyrics without words, like only he could. There can be no doubt of the outcome, she comes to bed and they make love again!
