"Hush" as written by Jodi Marr, David Thomson, Tommy Simms and Juliet Simms....
This is as quiet as it gets
Hush down now, go to sleep
We were once perfect, me and you
Will never leave this room

Hush, you color my eyes red
Your love's not live it's dead
This letter's written itself
Inside out again

When rivers turn to roads
And lovers become trends
Hush, this is where it ends
This is where it ends

This is the calming before the storm
This absolution is always incomplete
It's always bittersweet

Hush, you color my eyes red
Your love's not live it's dead
This letter's written itself
Inside out again

When rivers turn to roads
And lovers become trends
Hush, this is where it ends

I won't make a sound so you don't wake
You don't wake, you don't wake
You don't wake

Hush, you color my eyes red
Your love's not live it's dead
This letter's written itself
Inside out again

When rivers turn to roads
And lovers become trends
Hush, this is where it ends
Hush, hush, hush, hush
This is where it ends

    General CommentI think you guys have a point, but I interpretted it a bit differently. I don't think its as much that she's leaving and he thinks the relationship is fine and is upset that she's leaving, I think its more that she's finally realised that he doesn't actually love her anymore and the only reason he's staying in the relationship is because its become what he's used to.

    So, I interpretted these parts as meaning this...

    "You color my eyes red"
    >He's making her cry
    "Your love's not live
    It's dead"
    >His love is gone
    "And lovers become trends"
    >Being together for them has become like the latest fashion, so they keep it going even though its not really what they want.

    Its the "calming before the storm" because its the peacful time in which she's realised what she has to do but hasn't done it yet, and when she does, its going to be huge.
    She doesn't want to wake him up because she doesn't want to deal with the "storm" that would be coming if he were to know she was leaving.
    Idk, I may be wrong, and this may be what you were saying and I was just reading it differently. Idk.

    And might I add, the guy in the movie is very hot and his snake bites make him even more so. mmmhmmm

    General Commentthe song about a relationship that dead.
    the guy think it fine but the girl knows that there love for each other is dead now for being in the relationship for so long and nothing really changed that much.

    the music video i saw on youtube is good though.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song. I adore her voice.

    The meaning is rather blunt. It's basically about a relationship that was once "alive", but now the love has gone & it's dead. So, she's ending the whole thing.

    General Commentbreakingbenjaminfan
    basically got it

    i think though that the guy would prolly be pree upset that shes leaving "you color my eyes red" and is in denial that it is any different.
    and how things change and how everything dulls over time.

    General Commenti had this song in my itunes archive for the longest time and it came up when i was making a new playlist. everything that she's singing is what i'm going through at the moment.
    what breakingbenjaminfan said, pegged the song exactly.

    General Commenti think she doesn't want to wake him because she doesn't want to hurt him..
    but she knows he's going to wake up eventually..
