Underoath – It's Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door lyrics

I've been up at this all night long
I've been drowning in my sleep
I've prayed for your safe place
And it's time for us to leave

Time is running, is running on empty and the gas is running out
I've decided that tonight is the night
That I let love aside
Full speed ahead this seems to be the place
I've seen this once before
Planned perfection sought in my dreams
Hoping this would take you home

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
Kiss me one last time

Around this turn where the, the cross will cast your shadow
The people will all gather
To remember such a day where the flames grew as high
As trees
And the world stopped just for you and me

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
Kiss me one last time
Shut your eyes x2

I will now bring new meaning to the word alone
Endless nights of dreaming of life
And the days we should have spent here

(Drowning in my sleep I'm drowning in my sleep)

Glass shatters and comes to a halt
I thought we'd be there by now
I thought it would be so much quicker than this

Pain has never been so brilliant
I made sure you were buckled in
Now you can walk hand in hand with him

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
Kiss me one last time
Shut your eyes x2

    It's about how you should love your wife as god loves, but no one can love like he does. So the guy decides to go 'home', to heaven since he can't love her the way he should. "around this turn where the cross will cast your shadow" he plans to drive off the road, and that's where they would put up a cross to remember the person who passed there. His knuckles turn to white because he was gripping the steering wheel tightly. "i will now give new meaning to the word alone" and "i thought we'd be there by now. I thought it would be so much quicker than this". He survives, and she does not.
