She got it all
The boys they would crawl
Away from her door then they come back again
But don't let 'em in
Smoking their gin
Leaving their best foot out in the cold
I'm a waste of a momma's boy
It's a shame they say
There's so much you know he'll never enjoy
All the love you come to destroy
There's a moment lost in time
When she says hush
I'm on your side
It's just the two of us
You know that I
You know I'll never say goodbye

She smiles for me
It don't mean a thing
It don't take away the way it was before
I'm foolish and grown
I should've known
Her's was a world made for just one throne
I'm a waste of a momma's boy
It's a shame they say
There's so much you know he'll never enjoy
All the love you come to destroy

How many days can you waste it boy
It's a shame they say
There's so much you know he'll never enjoy
All the love we come to destroy

There's a moment lost in time
When she says hush
I'm on your side
It's just the two of us
Though they might try

    I absolutely adore this song. This is the song that we listen to on quiet nights when we drive really fast on really long, straight roads with all the windows rolled down. You should try it sometime.

    This is my favorite song. I ordered Angie Aparo's CD recently because of this song. It reminds me of my boyfriend, some of the things he says to me sometimes. The lyrics and music are just amazing! It's a fun one to blast really loud on cool summer nights.

    this is a great song that talks about that moment with ur girl when its just the quietness and ur just loving being there with her ......i've met this guy before and he is as good live as he is on cd and u would think him to be a boy-band looking type but he kinda resembles dave draiman in person the bald head and all and his live performance was what got me to buy his cd ....and yes it is good for us guys to listen to when we are with are girls cause it just fits at those times

    This song is about a girl who played him..."I should have known her's was a world made for just one throne" Think about it, he's saying that he should have realized how selfish she was...it was good at the time but he was young and foolish. My ex boyfriend got me turned onto Angie through this song and I have never turned back...he is by far my favorite ever...and I'm from Georgia and he calls atlanta home...which means I am lucky to get to see him a lot!

    The first time I heard this song I thought, "Aww, it's so sweet. Just the two of them..." Then, after listening to it for two days straight, I really started listening to the lyrics and holy cow, this isn't a romantic song!

    Hush is all a guy falling for the wrong type of girl. She lied, destroyed his love, used him to get what she wanted, etc.

    I've seen this song on a few fan videos on youtube, and now I'm curious as to whether the people using thought the song was sweet or if they were being ironic.

    Great song, though. Love the music.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
