But I tried and I sighed
He didn't listen to me, I felt that way

Still I tried and I sighed
He wouldn't understand me, I felt that way

But you're so young and you don't get me now
I feel so guilty and you are chocolate brown

Chocolate brown, I can't play
Not too long, I will make it up to you
Chocolate brown

Still I learn and I learn
There's so much to think about you
So much to lose

But it's just fine and you don't see it now
Don't make me guilty
Please don't chocolate brown

Chocolate brown, I can't play
Not too long, I will make it up to you
Chocolate brown

    My InterpretationThis song is about an adult beats his pulsion for a child, an chocolate Brown one.

    He must resist and cannot play with this child. He don't want made some bad thing with him. Dolores was agress when was child by this father.

    Nothing to see with his son, sorry!

    Otherwise, its a very dark and powerful song and a very serious one.

    Song MeaningThis woman is talking to her baby kid, who she called chocolate brown. she is telling the baby that she has already tried too much to communicate with her man, but she can tell that he wasn't really paying attention to her at all.
    She found that they are two types of person, that he would never be able to understand her.

    She is going to give up this family, to start a new one without him and the baby. She supposes that her baby would be able to understand her, although whom is still too young at the moment. She feels so guilty for leaving her baby. She is about to leave, can't play with him already, just staying a little longer to say goodbye.
    She is telling the baby that it won't be too long that she will make it up to him. Now she is still learning. There's so much to lose when she think about the kid. But she believes it will be just fine, although her baby is not going to understand right now. She hopes that her baby is not going to hate her, because that will make she feels so guilty. Say goodbye once more, then she leaves.
