Why?  Are you reading it as "give up my moral life for an immoral one?"

The mind wanders...Hooker skirt and stilettos?  I think you meant TJ Hooker.

"I know there's a place you walk
where love falls from the trees
My heart is like a broken cup
I only feel right on my knees
I spill out like a sewer hole, yet still receive your kiss
How can I measure up to anyone now, after such a love as this"

I'd say that part's about god.
