They sat thru the night. In an empty apartment. 3 older gentlemen came inside. And they brought wine and cards and chocolate. And Joey smoked on a cigar and came back in. ..So you think he..s something special do you men?..

He stared through hard, cold insolent eyes. Turned his gaze with her. Fear hidden quite secure under blank features. Protruding middle she sat unashamed. She read his judgement on his concerned face. With slight sarcasm He addressed Her case. Is it too much to ask to know about your lover..s name?


He Is no one. He is a stranger I met on the Street. He never touched me. You..re all I need. And Will ever need.

But his eyes won..t be almond like yours nor blue like mine with all the sins of the world in the Iris. There..s no false blood. But you WILL love him. He..s from Gold Gardens. Our help before Atlas was ever born.

He is No one. He is no one.

They sat through the night........

    General Comment"They sat through the night
    In an empty apartment
    Three older gentlemen came inside
    And they brought wine cards and chocolates
    Joey smoked on a cigar and came back in
    So you think he's something special do you, men?"

    The three older men are the three wise men, and the wine cards and chocolates are the gifts the ybrough Mary and Joseph when Jesus was born. By asking if he's something special, Joseph means that what importance does he have to you?

    "He stared through hard, cold insolent eyes
    Turned his gaze with her
    Fear hidden quite secure under blank features Protruding middle she sat unashamed
    She read his judgement on his concerned face
    With slight sarcasm he addressed her case
    Is it too much to ask to know about your lover's name?"
    Joseph doesn't believe that Mary simply got pregnent. But Mary is fully confident in her self.

    "He is no one
    He is a stranger I met on the street
    He never touched me.
    You're all I need.
    And will ever need."
    Is Mary's plea to joseph. When she says he, she is refering to god. So she is saying he isn't real, simply a spirit but you are the one I love.

    "But his eyes won't be almond like yours nor blue like mine
    With all the sins of the world in the Iris
    There's no false blood.
    But you will love him
    He's from Gold Gardens.
    Our help before Atlas was ever born."

    Though he won't be look like neither one of us, and people will blame me for having him without being married, you will love him. By saying but there's no false blood it means that he is ours, even if you had no part of it. I don't know what gold gardens mean. The line Our help before Atlas was ever born.. Atlas was the god of sin and burden so, our son will carry our burdens and be our joy.
