"She'll Never Be Your Man" as written by and Chris Cornell....
The AM finds me home alone, awake and dead
Morning blinds me had that dream of you again
Fog is lifting I realize that you're not here
How you left me, life disappeared

Life is rejection, I know you've had your share
But this one's special, I can't compete with her
And did she tell you only she could know your mind
And did she sell you what I said one time

[Chorus]
She can be your lover
She can be your friend
She can be your vision of a mother, like the one you never had
She will know your troubles better than I can
But she'll never be your man
She'll never be your man
She'll never be your man

She's got you thinking of a world where you might fit in
A whole lot better than the one you've been living in
And did she tell you only she could understand
And did she sell you only time will tell

[Chorus]

She can be your lover
She can be your friend
She can be your vision of a mother, like the one you never had
She will know your troubles better than I can
Yeah, but one thing's for sure
She'll never be your man
She can be your lover
She can be your friend
She can be your vision of a mother, like the one you never had
She will know your troubles better than I can
Yeah, but one thing's for sure
She'll never be your man
She'll never be your man (Never be your man)
She'll never be your man (Never be your man)
Never be
She'll never be your man

    General CommentWell, this is a funny one. To me, it's about one of two possibilities: Either a heterosexual male has lost his girlfriend to another WOMAN, or a homosexual male has lost his male partner to a woman (i.e. his partner is going straight).

    I suspect the latter, if only because the song is sung by a male, but more because of the first line of the second verse: "She's got you thinking/Of a world where you might fit in/A whole lot better than the one you've been living in." This refers, I would suspect, to the fact that homosexuals are often cast as misfits in society and face constant discrimination, so his male partner sees this chance to live a "normal" life by being with "her."

    What do you all think?

    p.s. I saw CC on Memorial Day this year, just a few days ago, and he did this song as the first part of his second encore. The show was GREAT

    General CommentI saw CC on LV on 05/05 and he said this song was dedicated to one of the guitar players of the band who had some crush on a stripper that was dating another woman. Actually, the song refers to a man losing his wife to another woman.

    General CommentWhen you think about it, CCR, you were on the right track with that line, but it makes more sense the opposite way -- She'll "fit in" more with a homosexual community, rather than hiding her tendencies and pretend to be heterosexual.
