What do these lyrics mean or how do you interpret them?

My friend Mel is getting a divorce. Her husband cheated on her, and they had a very abusive relationship on both ends, then decided he wanted a divorce. He posted these as his facebook status..what does this mean??

Night falls and I'm alone

Skin yeah chilled me to the bone

You turned and you ran

Oh yeah oh slipped, right from my hand

Hey, blue on black, tears on a river

Push on a shove it don't mean much

Joker on jack, match on a fire

Cold on ice a dead man's touch

Whisper on a scream doesn't change a thing

Don't bring you back

Blue on black oh yeah, blue on black

Blind oh, now I see

Truth, lies and in between

Wrong, can't be undone

Oh slipped, from the tip of your tongue

Hey, blue on black, tears on a river

Push on a shove it don't mean much

Joker on jack, match on a fire

Cold on ice a dead man's touch

Whisper on a scream doesn't change a thing

Doesn't bring you back, yeah

Blue on black, oh blue on black, oh yeah

Blue on black, tears on a river

Push on a shove it don't mean much

Joker on jack, match on a fire

Cold on ice is a dead man's touch

Whisper on a scream doesn't change a thing

Don't bring you back, blue on black, oh yeah

Blue on black

Hey, blue on black, tears on a river

Push on a shove it don't mean much

Joker on jack, match on a fire

And cold on ice is a dead man's touch

Whisper on a scream doesn't change a thing

Doesn't bring you back

Blue on black, oh blue on black

Oh blue on black, oh blue on black

Update:

He posted this part specifically..

    One thing I can tell you is the first day in the studio was June 4 1968 and Robert Kennedy was killed June 6th 1968 and the song was written before July 4th. So what did they mean when they sing I shouted out "Who killed the Kennedys?" When after all It was you and me since Robert was still alive when they wrote the song, this has always been a mystery to me. I think they say it all in one line...Just call me Lucifer. take care dave

    This song was written about his friend's death. People interpret things differently. My take is that somethings don't change even if we want them to. You can't undo damage. Maybe he is referring to the death of the relationship? Just a guess.

    PART 1:

    Night falls and I'm alone

    Skin yeah chilled me to the bone

    You turned and you ran

    Oh yeah oh slipped, right from my hand

    this means that he misses her and the way things used to be before everything turned abusive most probably refering to the honeymoon stage all relationships start with before everything turns plain or in their case abusive.

    PART2:

    Hey, blue on black, tears on a river

    Push on a shove it don't mean much

    Joker on jack, match on a fire

    Cold on ice a dead man's touch

    Whisper on a scream doesn't change a thing

    Don't bring you back

    Blue on black oh yeah, blue on black

    that part means that no matter what he does things will always be the same, its like he's explaining that he gave up on trying to get back the honeymoon stage previously mentioned.. u can see it clearly when he says "match on a fire" its like itll only make it worse but never make it better, same with "whisper on a scream" if u whisper while someone is screaming u cant be heared so cant change anything, thats why it ends with "dont bring you back" and umm "blue on black" is for emphasis since when someone is sad theyre are "blue" and when someone is dead or gone theyre we see "blackness"

    PART 3

    Blind oh, now I see

    Truth, lies and in between

    Wrong, can't be undone

    Oh slipped, from the tip of your tongue

    this is another emphasis that he has given up on trying to win her back and that neither one of them can see the other part of the story that the other person is seeing "wrong cant be undone" can be explained as his regret for what he did and guilt, "oh slipped from the tip of your tongue" is that his regret was shattered when he realized it was inevitable judging by how the relationship was going on either parties side

    I think he's feeling a lot of negative emotions, hurt, betrayal, and he may even be angry at himself.
