"Let the Little Lady Talk" as written by and Bryson Phillips Brett Admire....
Let down when you're on top, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, you don't stop
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home, midnight till dawn
Light the battle fields, we'll tear the walls down
The girl pulls her own, head-start to fall
See the shock of a citywide blackout

She takes the cake to the podium top
I got nothing left now but to carry on, I'll carry on
Well, welcome home, midnight till dawn
Light the battle fields and let her carry you on

Hey, so make your best wishes
I like to watch them all circle around

Let down when you're on top, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, the last call
On the house where the lover's hanging on

Back down, get on the wall, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, you don't stop
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home, another late night show
Inviting, with a knock out
The girl takes the talk, cheats you out of the walk
Paralyzing from the waist down

I've caught the wind from the fits you throw
I've got nothing left now but to let it go, I'll let it go
Well, welcome home, another late night show
We're fighting for the knockout

Hey, so make your best wishes
I like to watch them all circle around
Hey, the lottery you wasted
I watch you burn your sweepstakes to the ground

Let down when you're on top, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, the last call
On the house where the lovers hanging on

Back down, get on the wall, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, you don't stop
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

I wanna throw in the towel, yeah
I wanna throw in the towel, oh, oh, yeah
I wanna throw in the towel

So this is how it feels to be down
So this is what it feels like
Yeah, I watch them circle around

Let down when you're on top, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, the last call
On the house where the lovers hanging on

Back down, get on the wall, you don't stop
You gotta let the little lady talk
One round says you both drop, you don't stop
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home
Well, welcome home, hey, hey
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home
Well, welcome home, hey, hey
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home
Well, welcome home, hey, hey
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

Well, welcome home
Well, welcome home, hey, hey
You don't stop the lovers hanging on

    General CommentFirst, in response to cheeseninja3, while I agree that most of the songs are focused more on horizontal relationships, I submit that they aren't all (Return, Frank Morris) and some of those that are still have positive things to say (Mile Away, LTLLT, Counterfeit). Love is an important part of life as well; that can't be understated. Nevertheless, I wouldn't mind a little more God in the lyrics either.

    Now to the song at hand. There are a few incorrect lines in these lyrics, mainly in the first verse, but the point is still there. It seems to me - and I'm still not fully satisfied with this interpretation - that it's talking about the struggles of romantic, particularly marriage, relationships. It takes the perspective of a man who's wife is a nag or perhaps just a "talker" with lots of opinions. They're fighting and she's "throwing fits" (light the battle fields; we'll tear the walls down...another late night show; we're fighting for the knockout) and he's tired of it (I wanna throw in the towel; so this is how it feels to be down). But he's not giving up. He chooses to let her talk instead of walking away, thus saving the relationship (you don't stop; you gotta let the little lady talk. One round says you both drop; the last call on the house where the lover's hanging on). Later in the chorus, it ends with the same line, except with one small change: lover's to lovers. It's no longer a single person, but two people - lovers hanging on. In the end this song is about a couple fighting with each other, then fighting through the struggles to stay together. And while it talks only about the guy hanging on, I think it's safe to say the same can be said of women.

    There are still some parts of the song that don't quite sit well with this interpretation in mind, but it's the best I can get at this point - and I've heard this song a lot. It's very very cryptic. Love the band, love the writing - brilliant.
