"Hush" as written by Angus Stone and Julia Stone....
If you wake to find you're all alone
Call me up on the telephone, and I'll say
"Come on 'round, kick up your feet"
I'll check to see if your heart still beats, you can stay
I heard her laugh but she sounded blue
I said "you know my heart's for you, it likes awake
Dreaming of its promised land
A gentle touch from your gentle hand" I would say.

So hush, little darling, don't you cry
Hush, little darling, gonna make you mine

I know our love did rust away
But through that window came a better day
So don't close the blinds
Cause you're my light, you're my emptiness
The pretty colors on that summer dress, babe
You're all the things that fall from the sky
The sun, the rain, the moon, the light, babe
So come on down to this earthly being
And I'll hold you close when you're in need, babe

So hush, little darling, don't you cry
Hush, little darling, gonna make you mine
Hush, little darling, don't you cry
Hush, little darling, gonna make you mine

    General Commentsounds like an old deep love that is hard to let go of? they're not together anymore...("If you wake to find you're all alone
    Call me up on the telephone, and I'll say
    "Come on 'round, kick up your feet")

    Yet they both mourn for each other and want to work it out in the near future... (So hush, little darling, don't you cry
    Hush, little darling, gonna make you mine)


    maybe they're giving each other time so they can work on being together again.
    Somethings holding them back from not being able to though.
