Her love rains down on me easy as the breeze
I listen to her breathing it sounds like the waves on the sea
I was thinking all about her, burning with rage and desire
We were spinning into darkness; the earth was on fire

She could take it back, she might take it back someday

So I spy on her, I lie to her, I make promises I cannot keep
Then I hear her laughter rising, rising from the deep
And I make her prove her love for me, I take all that I can take
And I push her to the limit to see if she will break

She might take it back, she could take it back some day

Now I have seen the warnings, screaming from all sides
It's easy to ignore them and G-d knows I've tried
All this temptation, it turned my faith to lies
Until I couldn't see the danger or hear the rising tide

She can take it back, she will take it back some day
She can take it back, she will take it back some day
She can take it back, she will take it back some day

    Burning love... He tests her love and trust in him... He keeps taking more and more... He sees the signs of a failing relationship... Until its too late... She leaves him

    What is really wonderful about this song is more than it being about a relationship to a woman, it is actually a song about a man's relationship with Mother Earth. If we keep going as we are, She is going to take it all back and we are going to be left wishing we'd paid attention. When viewed in this light, the song's meaning is pretty clear.
