Only you alone can quench this Jah thirst.
My night nurse,
Oh the pain is getting worse.
His night nurse (read: booty call) is the only woman capable of quenching a thirst so strong it’s divine.
The pain could be a reference to the common male ill, “blue balls,” as well as any emotional pain he might be in because of past failed relationships.
