"Let the Little Lady Talk" as written by and Bryson Phillips Brett Admire....
Let down when you're on top, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, you don't stop
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home, midnight till dawn
Light the battle fields, we'll tear the walls down
The girl pulls her own, head-start to fall
See the shock of a citywide blackout

She takes the cake to the podium top
I got nothing left now but to carry on, I'll carry on
Well, welcome home, midnight till dawn
Light the battle fields and let her carry you on

Hey, so make your best wishes
I like to watch them all circle around

Let down when you're on top, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, the last call
On the house where the lover's hanging on

Back down, get on the wall, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, you don't stop
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home, another late night show
Inviting, with a knock out
The girl takes the talk, cheats you out of the walk
Paralyzing from the waist down

I've caught the wind from the fits you throw
I've got nothing left now but to let it go, I'll let it go
Well, welcome home, another late night show
We're fighting for the knockout

Hey, so make your best wishes
I like to watch them all circle around
Hey, the lottery you wasted
I watch you burn your sweepstakes to the ground

Let down when you're on top, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, the last call
On the house where the lovers hanging on

Back down, get on the wall, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, you don't stop
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

I wanna throw in the towel, yeah
I wanna throw in the towel, oh, oh, yeah
I wanna throw in the towel

So this is how it feels to be down
So this is what it feels like
Yeah, I watch them circle around

Let down when you're on top, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, the last call
On the house where the lovers hanging on

Back down, get on the wall, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, you don't stop
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home
Well, welcome home, hey, hey
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home
Well, welcome home, hey, hey
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home
Well, welcome home, hey, hey
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home
Well, welcome home, hey, hey
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

    General CommentFirst, in response to cheeseninja3, while I agree that most of the songs are focused more on horizontal relationships, I submit that they aren't all (Return, Frank Morris) and some of those that are still have positive things to say (Mile Away, LTLLT, Counterfeit). Love is an important part of life as well; that can't be understated. Nevertheless, I wouldn't mind a little more God in the lyrics either.

    Now to the song at hand. There are a few incorrect lines in these lyrics, mainly in the first verse, but the point is still there. It seems to me - and I'm still not fully satisfied with this interpretation - that it's talking about the struggles of romantic, particularly marriage, relationships. It takes the perspective of a man who's wife is a nag or perhaps just a "talker" with lots of opinions. They're fighting and she's "throwing fits" (light the battle fields; we'll tear the walls down...another late night show; we're fighting for the knockout) and he's tired of it (I wanna throw in the towel; so this is how it feels to be down). But he's not giving up. He chooses to let her talk instead of walking away, thus saving the relationship (you don't stop; you gotta let the little lady talk. One round says you both drop; the last call on the house where the lover's hanging on). Later in the chorus, it ends with the same line, except with one small change: lover's to lovers. It's no longer a single person, but two people - lovers hanging on. In the end this song is about a couple fighting with each other, then fighting through the struggles to stay together. And while it talks only about the guy hanging on, I think it's safe to say the same can be said of women.

    There are still some parts of the song that don't quite sit well with this interpretation in mind, but it's the best I can get at this point - and I've heard this song a lot. It's very very cryptic. Love the band, love the writing - brilliant.

    My InterpretationMy first thought on this song was that it was about a girl who is the product of divorce, and she's watching her parents fight. Maybe I'm putting too much personal experience into that interpretation though.

    Another look at it suggests that it's about a dysfunctional couple; someone looking in on them (maybe God, who knows), and saying Hey wait a second, you have to let your wife get a word in, mister. And while you're at it, back out of the fight before you let it escalate to the point of no return, where no one ends up winning, you're both just emotionally exhausted (too much to properly fix this).

    General CommentI thought this was about a couple who were in a struggle of some kind, but then something larger made them sort of...fight together.
    In my head it's some kind of hostile alien takeover or supernatural demons being raised from hell or something insane like that, but that could just be me...xD

    Lyric CorrectionI thought that it sounded more like "Caught the wind from the pitch you threw" than "Caught the wind from the fits you threw." Seems to make a little more sense, but I have no idea what he could be talking about.

    General CommentI think that the song is about meeting someone and thinking that you are going to get a little more than a goodnight kiss.
    the first part of the song indicates that she invited you to her house and you intend to really get wild and that you're surprised that you could even pull this girl.
    "she takes the cake to the podium top" i think indicates that she has insenuated that what she has to give is a cut above the rest, so not only do you think that you are lucky to have her but you put her ..."cake" on a pedistool (which is why she later backs down and doesn't want to go through with it.)
    the chorus tells us to backdown and except no as our final answer.
    "hey, hey, so make your best wishes..."tells us that there goes your hope of getting her in bed, they are flushed down the toilet.

    the second verse shows what happens when instead of letting it go, you get mad for being led on.
    and the "one round say you both drop.." says that it's big deal, it wouldn't have lasted that long or been that great anway, so let it go and keep it moving.

    all in all, i think the singer is looking in on a rather ridiculous situation and is saying " yeah, i know that you're disapointed, but just chill out and let it go man".

    My OpinionI always thought that it was a guy admiring a girl from a far
    kinda like, he had a crush on this girl who was really popular and maybe a little tougher and she was always trying to prove that she was good enough to be treated equally to the guys.

    But this guy is one of her best friends and he sees how tough she is and reasons with the guys to let her talk.

    and the midnight to dawn line was symbolizing her getting home late and he's her neighbour or something, but basically she's having sex with her boyfriend (or maybe prostitute *I like to see them all circle around) then the lottery you wasted *your virginity, yourself and he's like I see what you are doing,

    and then somehow their is a group of guys and her and their is something they can't do and the girl takes the talk, and cheats you out of the walk (Like she does better than you)
    Which makes him really impressed (Paralyzing from the waste down)

    and through all of this her friend is saying love is still holding on, But at the end he is saying to her if you don't stop where my love is handing on, we will both go down, when I walk away sad, and then you'll miss me when I'm gone
