Hush Hush - Avril Lavigne



The Experience: Still believing, we were always meant to be - but you didn't mean to fall in love. I wanted to keep you forever - but you go on and live your life. I don't understand, I won't even try. Telling my heart to quiet those thoughts about you - hush, hush  

The Music Video: Still waiting. 

My Take: Time heals all wounds. A desperate, urgent demand for solutions just hurts more. It's like opening your wounds to look inside them. At times it's better just to wait for the healing to kick in, someday, but not tonight. We just have to learn to hush hush our pain until the peace finally comes. 

Ask Yourself: When I'm hurting, do I want my solutions right now, immediately? Or can I wait for my wounds to heal someday, but not tonight?


LYRICS:

Hush, Hush (hush)
Hush, Hush
I didn't mean to kiss you
You didn't mean to fall in love
I never meant to hurt you
We never meant for it to mean this much
Hush hush now

I wanted to keep you
Forever next to me
You know that I still do
And all I wanted was to believe
Hush hush now

So go on, live your life
So go on, say goodbye
So many questions but I don't ask why
So this time I won't even try
Hush hush now

When I try to forget you
I just keep on remembering
What we had was so true
But somewhere we lost everything
Hush hush now

So go on, live your life
So go on, say goodbye
So many questions but I don't ask why
No

So go on, live your life
So go on and say goodbye
So many questions but I don't ask why
Maybe someday but not tonight
Hush hush now

Don't, don't, don't you ever say a word, word
Of what you ever thought you heard, heard
Don't you ever tell a soul
That you know

I tried to hide but I still believe
We, that we were always meant to be, be
But I could never let you go, no
Hush hush now

So go on, live your life
So go on and say goodbye
So many questions but I don't ask why
No

So go on, live your life
So go on and say goodbye
So many questions but I don't ask why
Maybe someday but not tonight
Hush hush now

Hush hush now
