Did I ever say, how I feel about you
A thing I never found that easy to do
The things that you do, don't need to be heard
You know your actions, baby, speak louder than words

(chorus)

Ive got the bottle, bring me your cup
Pop the cork, and try a sup
And when you're empty, I'll fill you up
Well drink it down till the sun comes up

Im heading home, like a steaming train
Foot to the floor, in the driving rain
My head is aching and my mouth is dry
Ive got a thirst only you can satisfy

(chorus)

Ive got the bottle, bring me your cup
Pop the cork and try a sup
And when you're empty, I'll fill you up
Well drink it down till the sun comes up

    The meaning of the song is the that mysterious glorious time when a man is consumed yes, by that visceral physical attraction to a woman but when the spirtual, the purity of love is so high - you aren't thinking about sex - it's her face, her smile that melts your heart like butter sitting before a thousand degrees of heat. You aren't sure if she is yours yet and you can't bear to live your life without her, this creation of God. That friends is what love is about. I have been married to that woman now for 23 years. I can still remember that time. God had to create woman...there is no other way.

    The obvious meaning to this song is two people drinking a bottle of wine together, she pops the cork, he fills her glass, they sit and drink until the sunrises.

    It seems relevant enough that these two people are lovers from the lyrics abouts his feelings towards her.

    The Bottle and cup is a metaphor for sex, he has the bottle, she has the cup (create the image in your head) and he intends to make love to her.

    "When you are empty i will fill you up" Meaning that at the climax of their sexual enconter there will be sexual juices.

    "I have a thirst only you can satisfy" His sexual desire for her.
    "I'm heading home, like a steaming train" He is well on his way to climax.
