"Halloween" as written by and Garneau....
I'm sorry, he brought us there,
Me crying in my underwear
On the morning, of Halloween
Like a story out of people magazine
I drove home, and fell asleep alone

I'm sorry, for crying, don't feel bad
You didn't do that

[Chorus]
Black and blues, and yellows too
Fade the stain
As embers do
Wake up tomorrow, and feel new,

The story, that we won't share
Were all goin' to hide it well away somewhere,
A warning for family
The kind a person give about anatomy

Now, well known,
Lets never sleep alone

I'm sorry, for crying, don't feel bad
You didn't do that

I'm sorry were crying, don't feel bad
Because we didn't do that

[Chorus: x3]

    General Commenti think this is another song referring to how he was molested as a child.

    "I'm sorry, he brought us there,
    me crying in my underwear
    On the morning, of halloween
    like a story out of people magazine"

    this verse is about his youth being ruined because of the molestation

    "i'm sorry, for crying, dont feel bad
    you didnt do that"

    black and blues, and yellows too
    fade the stain
    as embers do
    wake up tommrow, and feel new.

    (fix stain to same) black and blues are bruises, and yellow maybe represents him wetting his bed from the trauma. and maybe the end is about how his memory of it faded and he's trying to move on.


    he obviously cried a lot because of it, and he didn't want his parents to feel bad because it wasn't their fault

    General CommentMaybe his girlfriend tried to sleep with him and he got really scared because he was reminded of his molestation in his childhood. Then after, in the morning of Halloween, he drove away just like a story out of people magazine. Then the gf felt bad and he says 'it's not you' and 'lets never sleep alone again' because he's ready to move on from his past.

    General Commentmost likely about his molestation, i would say its probably about how him and his family wanted to move on from it but it's not that easy. not easy to move on from something like that. i think the black & blue & yellow are all his bruises; yellow bruises are the healing ones. the part with "crying in my underwear" could be when he first came back, or his flashbacks.

    Song MeaningTo me this song is about the sexual dysfunction that comes with being abused. You can have a difficult time engaging in any sort of intimacy, no matter how much you care for your partner. And like the song says, it's not their fault.
