Although it is a short song, it has a very unique sound due to the particular string arrangement which gives it a certain implicit drama, in addition to the lyrics. Like other songs from the group, it is a solid declaration of unconditional love and gratitude, because in essence it speaks indirectly about the maturity to which women lead men, metaphorizing it in the dark; while the couple's relationship is visualized as sin, achieving a certain critical air to the 'closed'-attitude of the church, being in this way the most peculiar lyrics about the main concept of this album, religion, because in conclusion its theme is the feminine domain, sin according to the Catholic Church, over man.
