Blood red sky on a desert road
Gotta make my way down to Mexico
For what I did, I know that it was wrong
The fire in my heart it will never die
Everything I love will be left behind
No turning back, forever gone tonight


All my love Anastasia, Anastasia
This may be our last goodbye
You can't save me
I am fading
Blood is on my hands tonight

All I need is a miracle
Lawmen got me running now forevermore
They'll hunt me down until the end of time
Oh my mama, now I've got to go
Never love another how I loved you so
I'm so afraid to leave this all behind

All my love Anastasia, Anastasia
This may be our last goodbye
You can't save me
I am fading
Blood is on my hands tonight

(Solo)

All my love Anastasia, Anastasia
This may be our last goodbye
You can't save me
I am fading
Blood is on my hands tonight

Anastasia, Anastasia
For your honor took a life
You can't save me
I am fading
Blood is on my hands tonight

(Solo)

    I think it means he killed someone to protect the honour of the woman he loved, anastasia. So now he has to run away from her and escape the law so he doesnt go to prison for murder, and he is finding it hard to cope with having to leave the love of his life.

    I always thought the last stanza said "for your heart/honor i took your life" instead of "for your honor took a life". So I always thought it was kind of about a guy killing his love so nobody else could have her because he was afraid of losing her. Hence "blood is on my hands tonight" and "forever gone"
