Not Christian, but I love sufjan, and this song is just the icing on his musical cake. I also think this song is open to much interpretati o n , it could mean anything to anyone in addition to the inferred.
I thought it was about a gay couple, a man singing "you gave up a wife and a family so you could be with me"
What I would give to be alone with you..

being from the "west michigan bible belt" i can tell you for a fact... it's about Jesus.

Yes, what upbeat lyrics.
When I read the lyrics I thought the same thing... it is about Jesus. I am also interested to see what the artist says... let the search begin.
I was really scrutinizing the lyrics, and I think @Gretchen and @rdbabcock7 are right; the song is about Jesus. It's such a soulful and passionate song that the meaning can easily be drowned by the sensuality of the melody and voice. I'd love to hear what the artist has to say about this song.
Beautiful song about Jesus.
This song isn't about a woman. It's about Jesus.

"You went up on a tree..."
"I've never known the man who loved me..."
i've swam across lake michigan, i know how hard it is. he must really like this chick.
A sublimely understated jewel of a song.
