"Heart Translation" as written by and Martin Walter Brown Miles Aaron Browne....
Want to hold you like a secret want to hold you like a hand
Want to hold you like a prisoner in the arms of my remand
Caught for good
Because to leave you with those days is never something I could do

There'll always be a part of me that needs to be with you
That's just what's true
There you were black silver dressed in gold
Like every story ever told

A million words in so few sentences
When you spoke to me it rang out like a song
That dared all ears to hear it wrong
To never know to never see to never reach a place to be

To never understand your way has put a limit on my days
So long its too late
So I said heart, translate
'Cause I don't understand a thing that you say

Maybe we'll see it all as its fading away
Different memories will come
Different seasons and days
And as long as it takes

Oh the heart it translates
It can never be wrong
It can only be late

    General CommentTo me this song is about a boy breaking with an abusive mother. He says:

    "there you were black silver dressed in gold
    like every story ever told"

    This is how wicked stepmothers/mothers appear in fairy tales. The rest of the song just spells out the confusing, hurtful, mystifying communication which the mother always used against him, and relates the difficulty of ending that specific relationship. The heart will always translate; always know that her words mean hate, even when she tries to spell out empty evasions and words of love; the blackness must be expelled from his life, even though its effects, some of them will keep going and going.
