"In Praise of The Vulnerable Man" as written by Alanis Morissette and Guy Sigsworth....
You are the bravest man I've ever met
You un-reluctant at treacherous ledge

You are the sexiest man I've ever been with
You, never hotter than with armor spent

When you do what you do to provide
How you land in the soft as you fortify

[Chorus]
This is in praise of the vulnerable man
Why won't you lead the rest of your cavalry home

You, with your eyes mix strength with abandon
You with your new kind of heroism

And I bow and I bow down to you
To the grace that it takes to melt on through

[Chorus]

This is a thank you for letting me in
Indeed in praise of the vulnerable man

You are the greatest man I've ever met
You the stealth setter of new precedents

And I vow and I vow to be true
And I vow and I vow to not take advantage

[Chorus]

This is a thank you for letting me in
Indeed in praise of the vulnerable man

    General CommentI love this song off her latest album! For me, the song is precisely what she says she does in the title- praising the vulnerable man.

    By calling males calvary, and therefore equating them to a species I think she is referencing the notion of "vulnerable species", where, according to wikipedia is: a species which is likely to become endangered unless the circumstances threatening its survival and reproduction improve.

    She is saying how few vulnerable men there are left and how she wishes this one vulnerable man would set the example for all men to follow.
