This is about a woman carrying on through the pain with persistence. Bad things happen, but she remains strong. (thanks, victoria - gaithersburg, MD)

The title plays off of a song title from Lerner & Loewe's "My Fair Lady," "A Hymn to Him," which asks "Why can't a woman be more like a man?"

Yes indeed, this song is about the Goddess. Ms Hynde is said to be a Pagan. It's a beautiful song.

I fully agree Ceci it's a beautiful song dedicated to her as well.
- Christina, Staten Island, NY
This is a song for the Goddess, hence the maiden, mother and crone reference. Also, "I dress as your daughter, when the moon becomes round" referring to full moon ritual. It is pagan, Thank Goddess.
