A man in my shoes runs a light
And all the papers lied tonight
But falling over you
Is the news of the day
Angels fall like rain
And love is all of heaven away
Inside you the time moves

And she don't fade
The ghost in you
She don't fade
Inside you the time moves
And she don't fade

A race is on I'm on your side
And hearing you my engines die
I'm in a mood for you
For running away
Stars come down in you
And love, you can't give it away
Inside you the time moves

And she don't fade
The ghost in you
She don't fade
Inside you the time moves
And she don't fade

Don't you go
It makes no sense
When all your talking supermen
Just take away the time
And get in the way
Ain't it just like rain
And love, is only heaven away
Inside you the time moves

And she don't fade
The ghost in you
She don't fade
Inside you the time moves
And she don't fade

    General CommentThis is a song that can be interpreted many ways it seems. When I first heard it, I thought it was a love song. Admittedly, I did not know all the lyrics, and still question some of them now.


    I love "furrealgirl"'s interpretation too, but it seems from my recent experience, this song means this...


    A man in my shoes runs a light = Guy discovered there was another lover competing for her
    All the papers lied tonight = All the love letters were a lie
    But falling over you is the news of the day = re-iterating the surprise he felt that someone else loved her

    Angels fall like rain = Love from her was "heaven", now it's gone, so angels fall...
    love is all of heaven away = heaven was love, and so now love seems so far away...

    inside you the time moves and she don't fade = we find that he is thinking of the past... time has passed (moved on), but her memory is still there
    the ghost in you she don't fade = once again, the memories don't fade

    the race is on i'm on your side = back then he was competing for her...just like the first line of "runs a light"...competition for her...racing for her...
    hearing you my engines die = he drops everything whenever he hears from her
    i'm in a mood for you = he loves her or...
    (for/or..i think "or") running away = ...or wants to run away from the pain...notice how he says this a little sadly...like he feels sad that a love can hurt so much when it's not returned, so you want to run away....

    stars come down in you = since there is no "heaven", even the stars fall, but she still looked heavenly
    love you can't give it away = but she still won't give him love

    don't you go it makes no sense = pleading : don't leave me

    when all your "talk of supermen" just take away the time = talking about guys better him just takes away time from me trying to win you back
    OR
    when all your "talking supermen" just take away the time = other so called "better" guys competing for her takes away time from him trying to win her back

    and get in the way = notice how he says this...like he's been pleading for her to come back, but then says this line like he just now realizes at that moment that he has no hope no matter what he says...

    ain't it just like rain = so he cries, tears cuz he realizes there is no hope
    love is only heaven away = love for her was heaven, now it's not there and so love is far away....



    So this is a song of a guy reminiscing of a failed love, and the spirit of what he loved in her will not go away....
