"You May Know Him" as written by and Marshall Cat Power....
Oh Lord heaven is the name that you sent me
Oh Lord heaven is the name that you gave him
And then he came to life and he lived
All others strange because who could of thought
That you meant so much to me

Oh Lord heaven is the name that you gave him
Surprised by the rise in sin you came through over and over again
Lord heaven is the place that you sent him

And you may know him
And you may know him only you
Lord I've never doubted for an instant
If we did what you say
And we do it everyday
If we did what you say
And we do it everyday

Lord if heaven is the place he believed in it's all you can do
Oh Lord heaven is the name that you sent me
Oh Lord surprised by the rise in sin you came through
You came through

    General CommentI think this song is about believing in God when you're young and then when you're young and start having sex and having guilt associated with what you're doing. My friends who have grown up in religious househould have told me about this peculiar feeling.

    My OpinionThe name of who you think this song is talking about is irrelevant. I can see this song talking about Buddha, or pure love, but it doesn't matter. The feeling this song emanates is what matters. The feeling the words are pointing at is what matters. Like finger pointing at the moon, don't look into the finger, look at what it's pointing at. Beautiful this song is, like warmth of the morning sun.
