"Trust Vs. Mistrust" as written by Nicholas Krill and Thomas Hughes....
Baby, get close to me
Read another story
You got golden books for times like these
To stop me from crying

Baby, get close to me
It's time for a feeding
Take your blouse so slowly

I wanna touch, my head to your soft pillow
And if you ever give me the chance
I'm never letting go, if this ain't 'bout pleasing me
Why you releasing me?
Why, why, whoa?

Baby, don't give up on me
Your skin on mine feels lovely
And the trust it comes so naturally
Except when you have gone away

But when you're here I sense you're near
I feel you over don'tcha care [unverified]
Teach me to feel you everywhere
I wanna feel you everywhere

I wanna feel you everywhere
I wanna feel you everywhere
I wanna feel you everywhere

I wanna touch, my head to your soft pillow
And if you ever give me the chance
I'm never letting go
If this ain't 'bout pleasing me
Why you releasing me?

Baby, don't give up on me
Experience comes slowly
How optimistic can you be
To wait for things you cannot see?

    General CommentAt first glance this kind of reads like a love song, but trust versus mistrust is a stage of child development where if a baby's needs aren't consistently met in a caring way they begin to distrust the world around them. So I'm pretty sure it's actually from the point of view of an infant, hence the part about "golden books" (a company that publishes books for small children) and "time for a feeding/ take your blouse off slowly".

    General Commentim just going to throw this out there...but im going to say i think this song is about sex...just saying the child development thing dosnt seem to fit with
    Baby get close to me,
    Its time for a feeding,
    Take your blouse so slowly,

    I wanna touch, my head to your soft pillow
    And if you ever give me the chance,
    I'm never letting go,
    If this ain't bout pleasing me,
    Why you releasing me,
    why why whoa

    Baby don't give up on me,
    Your skin on mine feels lovely,
    And the trust it comes so naturally,
    Except when you have gone away,

    But when your here i sense you're near,
    I feel you over don'tcha care (?)
    teach me to feel you everywhere,
    I wanna feel you everywhere,


    anluss we are talking about child molesters...my guess is its about a guy who wants to have sex with his girlfriend but for some reason or another they arnt and so hes saying just trust me ...etc

    thats what im thinkin

    General Commentin my opinion, this song is undoubtedly linked to childhood development, no question.

    I immediately recognized the song title as Erikson's first stage of Emotional Development, which is explicitly called "Trust vs. Mistrust"
    there are also nuances in the song that allude infancy (read another story/golden books/crying/time for a feeding/how the singer's scream sounds like the wails of a baby).

    however, i am definitely not asserting that the entire song is about infancy...the Spinto Band is using the delicate, clingy emotional state of an infant during its trust-developing stage of life as a metaphor for the vulnerability one feels in a relationship and the separation anxiety that comes with...well, separation. just as an infant cries when his/her mother has gone away because he/she misses her touch, this lover yearns for his beloved.

    General Commentits pretty much indisputable that the Spinto Band had Erikson's Stages of Emotional Development in mind with this song, but all music is up for interpretation.

    I always thought it was:

    I feel your OVERARCHING care.
