I don't know if she ever identified as a lesbian, just that she never explicitly said it was about a gay couple or a straight couple. I believe she is dating a woman now which suggests she was thinking of a lesbian couple but i would say t's more of an implied and/or lesbian subtext song.

i think people forget that we used to live in the margins of society and that we had to use subtext to make media more consumable. Anyways i know that song made a lot of people straight and gay connect to her music, so i think anyone can see it as their love song.

it's annoying how music we connect to is somehow political. i wish people both straight and gay would stop equating our sexuality as our politics.

All Tracy Chapman’s friends in Boston knew she was a lesbian when she was busking there. She also had a love affair with Alice Walker in the 1990s. They weren’t out about it though.
