Songfacts®:

  • This song seems to be about a man in his dying hour. "There's a darkening sky above me, there's no time to prepare" represents death, and that he could die any second. He also seems to be lamenting that he has stuff he hasn't done and that he would return to do it if he can ("Maybe I'll be back some other day to live again, just who can say", "I'm coming back to try again, some day may I be away till then"). >>
