I get the impression from the song that it's talking about scenes from the bible. "You saw her bathing on the roof" sounds like david and bathsheba and "She cut your hair" sounds like Sampson and Delila. I could be wrong, just some thoughts. Either way it's a great song. Has anyone noticed that the version on the soundtrack is different from the version in the movie? It's a different singer and everything.
