If it's a love song from everyman to everywoman, couldn't it also be from everywoman to everyman? Or to the same sex, for that matter?
The one thing I always wondered about that song was: why the references to circles? I guess the title means the same as "since the beginning of time", but why circles in particular? A reference possibly to "circle"as in the circle and the square, the traditional symbols of male and female?
Then again,I imagine Bob is chuckling away at us all for reading more into his lyrics than he ever intended
I get the feeling Bob isn't big on explaining specific lyrics, but I've been curious for a while myself about the meaning of the circles references.....not just in this song, but also in I Found You, and another one......can't remember the lyrics now, maybe We Are Children Still.
