'a more universal interpretation" of "Come Talk To Me"

As you hear St. Daniel Lanois explaining  in the first video below, Peter Gabriel's "Come Talk To Me," was originally Peter talking to his daughter, but  like all good art, leaves room for "more universal interpretation"..including the whole song as a prayer (Note the switch in one verse from "Come on and talk to me" to "Come DOWN and talk to me...) and lament.
