Make it so anyone can relate. That's not easy to do either. Sufjan is a remarkably gifted and annointed artist. But greatly human too.

Absolutely no one like Sufjan. I don't know if he even has an equal when it comes to his musical and lyrical genius. His voice is also very captivating. Leaves quite the impression on you, with such subtlety. As well as a great vessel for our Creator, God. Communicates the Gospel, without preaching religion, or forcing to make a point. Just speaks from his own personal experience and relationship . And how can anyone not connect with that. I love Confessional songwriters. Especially those who mak

This is a Christian song? I love Sufjan 10x more now, whoa
Report as inappropriate
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"

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..."

A sublimely understated jewel of a song.
