I've been losing sleep,
I've been keeping myself awake,
I've been wandering the streets,
For days and days and days,

Oh if I'm row to row,
Back to back,
Lover to lover,
And black to red,

But I believe,
I believe...

There's no salvation for me now,
No space among the clouds,
And I've seen that I'm heading down,
But that's alright

And I've been taking chances,
I've been setting myself up for the fall,
I've been keeping secrets,
From my heart and from and from my soul.

Going from row to row,
Back to back,
Lover to lover,
Black to red,

But I believe,
I believe...

There's no salvation for me now,
No space among the clouds,
And I've seen that I'm heading down,
But that's alright,
That's alright,
That's alright!
That's alright!

Row to row,
Back to back,
And lover to lover,
And black to red,
And row to row,
Back to back,
And lover to lover!

No space among the clouds...
And I feel I'm heading down...
But that's alright,
That's alright,
That's alright!
That's alright!
That's alright!
That's alright!

Row to row!
Back to back!
And lover to lover!
And black to red!
And row to row!
Back to back!
Lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover...

No salvation for me now...
No salvation for me now...
No salvation for me now...
No salvation for me now...

    The fight i have just had with the universe in my soul. Florance and i could take on the world with this feeling just by standing where we are. This is my hearts prayer

    I think it's an allusion to the scarlet letter, "black to red," with the same emotional feeling of damnation, judgement, and finally the realization that salvation is hers. It's like her song "what the water gave me" which was an allusion to virginia wolfe.

    For those of you who don't know what 'lover' means, i'll tell you now it doesn't mean somebody you are in love with.

    Anyways, this song is about florence and her parade of 'lovers'. Naughty!

    ''i've been keeping secrets,
    from my heart and from and from my soul... ''
    she lost her love and she try hard to convince hershelf that she forgot him.. But she can't make it!
