    General CommentI'm not sure if Stevie Wonder was born to a mother addicted to crack, but this song seems to come from a new born child's perspective:

    Cold, too cold, you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
    But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world

    I think maybe Stevie just reflected on the hardships he had to face being blind. I think he may have been on the brink of death when he was born, almost to heaven, and they revived him. In this song, he's talking to his mother. (IMO)

    General CommentConsidering that this song is from "Hotter Than July", I think this song is about the same lady in "Lately" (IMO)

    General CommentThis song is about the wonderful feeling of falling in love only to discover the feeling is no longer mutual. Crack had not been invented when Stevie Wonder was born.
