"Shh" as written by Imogen Jennifer Heap and Guy Sigsworth....
Sunbeam, stop tugging me
Pull that door shut quietly
Darling, what are you doing?
We don't have time for this

Mmm dey mmm da mmm daaeeoo
Mmm dey mmm da mmm daaeeoo

Crazy what are you then?
Give me an hour and I'll give you your dreams

Don't make a sound
Shh and listen
Keep your head down
We're not safe yet
Don't make a sound
And be good for me
Cause I know the way to somewhere out here

Leave it I won't go back
We have to do it 'cause it's not been left here
Don't care what do they know
I've seen them, baby, and I know it's real
Sure, in time, I knew they'd come
Oh, are we having fun or what?

Yeah

Don't make a sound
Shh and listen
Keep your head down
We're not safe yet
Don't make a sound
And be good for me
Cause I know they're waiting somewhere out here

I feel good all over
I feel good all over
I feel good all over

Even inside out

    General CommentI love this song so much, especially the music after she says "wear your inside out"
    However, I don't think this song is about sex, and if it is, it definitely shows the beauty in it, which Imogen Heap is amazing at doing.
    I thought it said "I've seen their baby and I know it's real"
    Moreover; to me this song is about being surrounded by fake people in a worn-out place, and running away with the person you love.

    General Commenthmm - i usually hate these 'alian abduction' theories, seems like every is so determined to turn any slightly ambiguous song into an abduction! drives me wild. but i think that it might actually work with this song, especially if that is what frou frou says it is about! surely if anyone knows, they do? But its evidently a positive event to the singer. maybe its not so much about alien abduction per say, but about the notion of there being 'something other' than what is, something that can believed in, a better way of life, contrary to popular opinion - everyone calls her crazy. and its certainly been made to sound like its about a secret sexual affair, frou frou must have been aware that they were putting a sexual spin on it. so i propose that it is using an alien narrative to talk about general faith and escape, the courage to believe in the reality of 'crazy' dreams - and more specifically in the context of a secret sexual affair. Is that too subtle and complicated and clever to be true?

    Song MeaningThe only way to understand this song, is to understand her "Let Go" track. What the average person does not know, is that most of what is described as "angels" or "star children" in religious books and native cultures writing are in fact visitors. You find them in books from Bible to Sumerian texts. They were the angels who conveyed knowledge and instruction from "God" a long time ago.

    This song basically the voice of her, Frou Frou, and them, the visitors. She, Frou is enlightened. She probably studied these things or stumbled across it out of curiousity. Having an obvious knowledge of meditation and from what I can only assume to be chakra aligning, she well, "burst the bubble". She better describes this in her track "Let Go." She literally sees a large portion of the light specturm that we cannot see, which adds up to about 99% of all light visible and "non-visible". It's normally referred to "The Kingdom of God". Rather beautiful to say the least. "Give me an hour and I'll give you your dreams" is bout the time it takes to activate specific, but will remain nameless, key points in the body and brain, and then let nature do the rest. That line is "them" talking to YOU, that is, if you understand.

    Chances are, Frou Frou is now communicating a message to whoever is blessed enough to understand. Chances are, she has her 3rd eye open and is probably overwhelmed. When she is saying "I've seen them baby and I know it's real", she is really just refering to UFOs which anyone can do research on. Chances are she saw one in real life, so that probably changed her as a human being. It is entirely possible that these visitors revealed themselves to her while she was in deep meditation, sort of like the prophets of old. She is not the only artist who is like this, 90 percent of all music you listen to refers to this in some way. Coldplay, RHCP, U2, Moby, Jack Johnson, The Verve, I could go on and on.

    Then God said,
    "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness."

    I guarantee if you read your Bible again, you will see some things you will surely notice now.
