Song Meaning
Verse 1
Been so long since a strange woman has slept in my bed
Look how sweet she sleeps, how free must be her dreams
In another lifetime she must have owned the world, or been faithfully wed
To some righteous king who wrote psalms beside moonlit streams
Verse 2
I and I
In creation where one's nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One say to the other, no man sees my face and lives
Verse 3
Think I'll go out and go for a walk
Not much happening here, nothing ever does
Besides, if she wakes up now, she'll just want me to talk
I got nothing to say, 'specially about whatever it was
Verse 4
I and I
In creation where one's nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One say to the other, no man see my face and lives
Verse 5
Took an untrodden path once, where the swift don't win the race
It goes to the worthy, who can divide the word of truth
Took a stranger to teach me, to look into justice's beautiful face
And see an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
Verse 6
I and I
In creation where one's nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One say to the other, no man sees my face and lives
Verse 7
Outside of two men on a train platform there's nobody in sight
They're waiting for spring to come, smoking down the truck
The world could come to an end tonight, but that's all right
She could still be there sleeping when I get back
Verse 8
I and I
In creation where one's nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One say to the other, no man sees my face and lives
Verse 9
Noontime, and I'm still pushing myself along the road, the darkest part
Into the narrow lanes, I can't stumble or stay put
Someone else is speaking with my mouth, but I'm listening with my heart
I've made shoes for everyone, even you, while I still go barefoot
Verse 10
I and I
In creation where one's nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One say to the other, no man sees my face and lives
