Songfacts®:

  • This song is about a man who commits suicide by jumping off a building after he and his girlfriend had a huge fight. He is lying on the ground like a cross turned upside down when a woman sees him and screams. A priest starts to read him his last rights and then an ambulance comes and the man dies when the medic states the time of death is half past six. >>
