"Little Hands" as written by and Henry Onorati Katherine K. Davis....
My baby's gone like a flame
Put out by the rain
Water down the drain

Little face, little feet
Little hands in my mind
Where I'm crying all the time
Where I'm crying all the time

Little face, little feet
Little hands in my brain
Driving me insane
Driving me insane

Little face, little feet
Little hands not around
No more little sounds
No more little sound

My baby's gone like a flame
Put out by the rain
Water down the drain

    General CommentThis song is sad. To me, the song is maybe about a girl who got pregnant by someone she loved, very much, but she knew he didn't love her? So then the decision of what to do drove her insane, and she got an abortion, and now her baby is gone. "Little face little feet little hands not around, no more little sounds."

    General CommentThis IS a sad song. Most of their songs are pretty dark in my opinion.
    To me this song is about a woman (or a couple) that had a baby, and the baby died very young. Now they have to deal with the constant bombardment grief, only left with few memories from it's brief little life.
    The sounds they make at the end of the song sound like they are saying "Ow-Owww-Ow-Ow-Ow-Owwww".
    Painful.

    General CommentI've always seen this song as being about child abduction, especially with all the sounds in the background. It's very dark and it's about the immense loss that parents would have to go through. I can also totally see it as being about abortion or miscarriage though, but when the child at the end starts yelling what sounds like "help me, help me." it gets truly haunting. Great song.

    My Interpretationi most definitely see this song as through the mind of a child molester. the breathiness of it rendering their dark thoughts. i see it as theyve gone through with abducting a child and have grown attached to this particular child but find themselves killing the child (whether because the child begged to be released and in anger over the emotional cliff beat/strangled them (though strangle seems more the pick with the repeating lyric "no more little sounds") or they actually hadnt abducted this child but simply molested them and realized they might tell someone, and acted in desperation). the whole "driving me insane" seems like they know how bad their actions are, theyre not doing it despite but because they cant help themselves - and evidently feel great remorse when reality hits and they realize how far theyve gone.

    General CommentThe song could be about empty nest syndrome. When my own 3 go away I tend to lie on their beds and cry. It's genetic, I have learned:)
