"Slow It Down"

I feel her filth in my bones
Wash off my hands til it's gone
The walls they're closing in
With velvet curtains

Some love was made for the light
Some kiss your cheek and goodnight
Lift up a red high heel
Lock up your doors with steel

They're makin noise in my street
My blinds are drawn I can't see
Smashed in my car window
Didn't touch the stereo

Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
Rest your arms, and rest your legs

Act like you've been here before
Smile less and dress up some more
Tie up your scarf real tight
These boys are out for blood tonight

Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
Rest your arms, and rest your legs

And when she stood she stood tall
She'll make a fool of you all
Don't ask for cigarettes
She ain't got nothin left for you

I never, she never, we never looked back
That wasn't what we were good at
And when it came to love
We were not good enough

Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
Rest your arms, and rest your legs
Don't you frown when you're feelin like that
Only love can dig you out of this

    He misses her makes me think maybe she did something like cheat and he can't forget it or maybe he is in love with someone he can't have. Some love was made to be enjoyed and shown off and some will leave after they get what they want. Just put down your red high heels and maybe stay a while. I am not sure what the third verse is about maybe they have a strong connection through the radio and it was left behind for him to remember her. Angie, rest your arms and rest your legs. He doesn't want her to leave because she has a spot on his heart and in his bed. She goes out and meets guys to feek good about herself and maybe she does this because she doesn't feel like she deserves this mans love. Be careful because these boys are out for one thing and one thing only. Come back to bed and stay with him maybe it is a last chance. She is lonely and she has nothing left to give to anyone. I never, she never, we never looked back. Maybe he couldn't except the fact that she has a past with other men, but when it came to love it just wouldn't work but she has a spot next to him and when she is done the only way she can feel good again is to find love.

    I don't know that is my meaning. I just picture a lost and confused women who feels she has no self worth but he loves her and wants her to love him and feels good again.
