    The song is really a wish that one partner either dead or alive is singing to their deceased loved one they miss them and want to be with them again "I've hungered for your touch a long lonely time" they hope they haven't moved on or forgot that the partner still loved them.
    "Are you still mine?" they long to be reunited "I need your love, I really need your love" this is the partner pleading to be reunited and finally them wishing a swift and untimely death so they may once again be reunited with their loved one in heaven "godspeed your love to me" by this he means bring me to you sooner than I would have. I however do not believe in god so this part of the song is dumb to me but it is still a beautiful song and any person who misses a deceased or living partner whose away could interpret the meaning to their feelings =).

    You have it all wrong God doubter! The singer is in prison reminiscing about his lover. The song or melody has freedom hence unchained whereas the singer is so to speak in chains in jail. Now you can thank God that you know the truth for it will set you free.
