Love of mine,
Someday you will die,
But I'll be close behind,
I'll follow you into the dark.

No blinding light
Or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight,
Waiting for the hint of a spark.

If heaven and hell decide,
That they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the "no's" on their vacancy signs,
If there's no-one beside you when your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

In Catholic school,
As vicious as roman rule,
I got my knuckles bruised,
By a lady in black
And I held my tongue, as she told me "son,
Fear is the heart of love",
So I never went back.

If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the "no's" on their vacancy signs,
If there's no-one beside you when your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

You and me, have seen everything to see,
From Bangkok to Calgary,
And the soles of your shoes
Are all worn down, the time for sleep is now, it's nothing to cry about,
Cause we'll hold each other soon,

In the blackest of rooms,

If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the "no's" on their vacancy signs,
If there's no-one beside you when your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark.
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

    it means that if you were to die, the one that loves you would follow you into death, because they would rather be dead then have to go through life without the one that they held closest to their heart.

    He's been with her for a long time and he loves her so much that he will die when she dies because he would be too lonely, and the part about vicousness is a way of expressing how cruel life would be for taking her from him

    the nun, it's about how everything else that is meant to help us, doesn't always. it manifests it'self in cruel actions. Never again.
