Pull my coat around me
Feel the cold wind haunt me
Streets are empty just like me
The murmur of an echo
Seems to come from every window
Is loneliness the same as being free

I guess I must have been dreaming
To think that I believed in you at all
Now I just can't fight it
As the shadow of the night begins to fall

Love's got a lot to answer for
Oh I just can't sleep with this feeling anymore
Let the cold night air cool the heat
Of two hearts gone to war
For no matter who wins, in the end
Love's got a lot to answer for

All I need is darkness
The best of all protection
Freedom's like the stars in the sky
Alone and cold and burning
Each one keeps it's distance
If only we were stars, you and I

    I feel that love is another word for god and darkness refers to the devil. If that is true then the song refers to the fight between good and evil and in some way god has a lot of explaining to do or to answer for. "all i need is darkness" & "to think that i believed in you at all" those two lines sound like they agree with the topic of good vs evil.
