Sonny signed his name up for tomorrow and laughed with all his friends
At all the little men who borrows tunes they heard just yesterday
Davey got us down but we got away and drank to all the days
That we had whiled away just playing Robin Hood a little out of phase

And then the nightmares come and you get blown away
And up in your room, your walls are cold
You find your head is holding out for the welcome of a better day

And then the nightmares come and you get blown away
And up in your room, your walls are getting colder
Like you're getting on a roller coaster, you can't find the breaks

Stevie burned the sky when he flew away and left us things to say
When all the world was falling down around our shoulders, cold and gray
Harry carried on in his usual way and Minnie went inside
And came out once and we both cried and Minnie blew my head away

When you're giving everything away, everybody lets you pay
You're saving up for a better day, seeing things in a better way
When you know you've got to live, there's nothing you won't give
To hear the phone and not let it ring every Monday morning

Shughie found love and he almost cried, we laughed and wondered why
We love the sky and found the space and gazed out over Stevie's plane

    I'm not sure, but I think this song is about coping with the death of someone close to you. I'm probably wrong though.
