"One True Vine" as written by and Jeffrey Scot Tweedy....
I was last in line
For the one true vine
Endless winding prayer
I was dead at first
I had done my worst
And you came to me

Life had ceased
I was lost and tired
You set me free
From this mighty, mighty fire
Just in time to be
My one true vine

You still come to me
And you comfort me
The only one that I believe
I trust you
I hope that someday you will
Trust me too
I wanna be what you are to me

Life had ceased
I was lost and tired
You set me free from
This mighty, mighty fire
Just in time to be
My one true vine

    General CommentYou could look at this as being a song to either a supportive lover, or a song to God. Obviously Tweedy has some interest in God and the Christian faith, and I would love to hear him expound upon those ideas some day, or (even better) to sit and have a conversation with him about that stuff. :)

    Those who know a thing or two about the Bible know that Jesus referred to himself as the True Vine, and those who follow him are the branches. I know people who go through rehab often come away with a faith in God, and I'm wondering how much Jeff's experiences there affected his writing.
