Don’t cry, darling
Let’s try to make up
Please don’t push me
I’m over the top

Drown my sorrows
You’ve just got to stop
I’ll say sorry
If you let it drop

Can’t understand
Why you won’t take my hand
Out of control
And you hurt me so much

Reeling I’m falling
No hope and no warning
Out of control
But I love you so much

Don’t say sorry
It’s not what you mean
I can’t help you
If that’s how you feel

I see the storm gathering ‘round
Dark clouds that block out the light

Cries in the wind
As the night break begins
Out of control cuz
You hurt me so much

Tears from the rain
And the storm cannot wane
Out of control
But I love you so much

Words are still stinging
My eardrums are ringing
All that I want
Is the joy of your touch

Breaking our hearts
As our worlds fall apart
Out of control
And I love you so much

Hold me, darling
I don’t want to fight
Too far, too close
I can’t get it right

I won’t ask you to reign it in now
Change has already begun

I’m reeling I’m falling
The future is calling
Out of control cuz
You’re in such a rush

Swinging to face her
It’s all an adventure
Out of control
And I love you so much

Seasons are changing
The world’s rearranging
All that I want is
The joy of your touch

Twisting together
Our blood is forever
Out of control
And I love you so much

    General CommentReleased February 19, 2016, this is the latest ethereal waltz-pop song by Lush, after a 20-year hiatus.

    Now in their 40s, their lives have considerably changed, as has their lyrics. Before, Miki sang of love and the life of a just barely adult. Now, the lyrics have matured to describe the heartache and frustration and wonder and love a mother feels as her child approaches adulthood and invariably separates from her hold.

    The songs spoke to me when I was in my 20s, before the idea of a husband, let alone children, were even a concept in my head. When I discovered my freedom, my power over men, my voice.

    And this song speaks to me now, as my oldest son pulls back from embraces, his voice cracking and his bedroom door as closed as his feelings.

    And I cried a little. and smiled a lot, because someone still gets me.
