"Hockey Teeth" as written by and Afie Salomon Jurvanen....
Though there were men before me
That held you in their arms
With a love so hot and getting hotter
They're setting off fire alarms

Though their were girls before you
I remember their names
Ain't it a beautiful thing to watch our love, or season change

Every night when I lay you down, lay you down to sleep
You know, I'm thanking the lord for blessing you with hockey teeth

Though you might have a plan
Those plans are all in the past

Who among us could know
That our love would come and grow so very fast

Seems like we got in your car
And drove that car to the beach
And ever since that day,
Never very far away, or out of reach

Every night when I lay you down, lay you down to sleep
You know I'm thanking the lord for blessing you with hockey teeth

Every morning when we wake up and our lips meet
You know I'm thanking the lord for blessing you with hockey teeth

    My InterpretationI'm gonna keep this short and sweet because Afie does that himself very well in this song. It's a love song to his current love, saying that their love wipes away any others than came before. The "hockey teeth" metaphor is kind of self-evident; hockey players' teeth are all over the place thanks to fights and injuries - basically, they have anything but perfect teeth. And in this he is acknowledging her faults and saying that he's actually glad for them.

    General CommentI was at a concert of his in Calgary last night, and he said this song is about when you go in to kiss your significant other, and your teeth hit! hah

    General CommentAlso, here's my interpretation of the lyrics:

    Though there were men before me
    That held you in their arms
    With a love so hot and getting hotter
    They're setting off fire alarms

    Though there were girls before you
    I don't remember their names
    Ain't it a beautiful thing
    To watch our love or a season change

    Every night when I lay you down
    Lay you down to sleep
    You now Im thanking the lord for blessing you with hockey teeth

    Though you might have had a plan
    Those plans are all in the past
    Cause who among us could know
    That our love would come and grow so very fast

    Seems like we got in your car
    And drove that car to the beach
    And ever since that day
    Never very far away, or out of reach

    Every night when I lay you down
    Lay you down to sleep
    You now Im thanking the lord for blessing you with hockey teeth

    General CommentI totally agree with imtryingtowakeup. I just saw Robert Plant last night at Jazzfest, and Bahamas was the opening act.
    Seriously infectious music. They've been stuck in my head since last night!
