This song, like many but not all Cat Stevens' love songs, is really a personification of that ancient desire to discover one's soul. It's a personification of the interplay between God's love and ones spiritual love, recognizing that the two can never meet in this life. Other songs along this line are How Can I Tell You, Where Are You and perhaps parts of Foreigner Suit. This technique is as ancient as the Bhagavad Gita,"The Song of God."
