Any ideas on the meaning behind this one? It might shed some light on some of the unknown or seemingly cryptic lyrics.
I haven't the foggiest about the missing line (in the first verse, it should be "like a spark" though).
The whole song has strong Christian undertones IMHO: The falling dove might represent the Holy Spirit descending on Jesus, also there's shades of Noah's Arc (more doves). The song might be comparing a lover's trust with God's trust in mankind, with the narrator waiting for his lover and only feeling saved (resurrected) once they arrive. How do the first two verses fit in there? No idea. But then Neil probably hasn't either..
And that's about as deep as I'll get.
