    Yes. Kinda like that song, and kinda short too!! I heard from somewhere that it portrays the attitude of young americans nowadays
    All good things come to an end.

    Silent All These Years, Tori Amos.

    excuse me but
    can i be you for a while
    my DOG won't bite
    if you sit real still
    i got the anti-christ
    in the kitchen
    yellin' at me again
    yeah i can hear that

    been saved again
    by the garbage truck
    i got something to say
    you know but NOTHING comes
    yes i know what you think of me
    you never shut up
    yeah i can hear that

    but what if i'm a mermaid
    in these jeans of his
    with her name still on it
    hey but i don't care
    cause sometimes i said
    sometimes i hear my voice
    and it's been
    HERE silent all these years

    so you found a girl
    who thinks really deep thoughts
    what's so amazing
    about really deep thoughts
    boy you best pray
    that i bleed real soon
    how's that thought for you

    my scream got lost in a paper cup
    you think there's a heaven
    where some screams have gone
    i got 25 bucks and a cracker
    do you think it's enough
    to get us there

    but what if i'm a mermaid
    in these jeans of his
    with her name still on it
    hey but i don't care
    cause sometimes i said
    sometimes i hear my voice and it's been
    HERE silent all these

    years go by will i still be waiting
    for somebody else to understand
    years go by if i'm stripped of my beauty
    and the orange clouds raining in my head
    years go by will i choke on my tears
    till finally there is nothing left
    one more casualty
    you know we're to EASY easy easy

    well i love the way we communicate
    your eyes focus on my funny lip shape
    let's hear what you think of me now
    but baby don't look up
    the sky is falling

    your MOTHER shows up in a nasty dress
    it's your turn now to stand where i stand
    everybody lookin' at you
    here take hold of my hand
    yeah i can hear them

    but what if i'm a mermaid
    in these jeans of his with her name still on it
    hey but i don't care
    cause sometimes i said
    sometimes i hear my voice
    i hear my voice
    i hear my voice
    and it's been HERE silent all these years
    i've been here silent all these years
    silent all these
    silent all these years

    Sunny came home by shawn colvin
    I really like this song, but i'm not too sure what the lyrics means. I comes across as a little disturbing despite the light guitar beats.

    Sunny came home to her favorite room
    Sunny sat down in the kitchen
    She opened a book and a box of tools
    Sunny came home with a mission

    She says days go by I'm hypnotized
    I'm walking on a wire
    I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
    Into the fire

    Sunny came home with a list of names
    She didn't believe in transcendence
    It's time for a few small repairs she said
    Sunny came home with a vengeance

    She says days go by I don't know why
    I'm walking on a wire
    I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
    Into the fire

    Get the kids and bring a sweater
    Dry is good and wind is better
    Count the years, you always knew it
    Strike a match, go on and do it

    Days go by I'm hypnotized
    I'm walking on a wire
    I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
    Into the fire
    Light the sky and hold on tight
    The world is burning down
    She's out there on her own and she's alright
    Sunny came home
    Sunny came home...

    just found this for you. i always thought this song was about some psycho burning down her house, but i wanted to make sure before i posted anything. apparently, colvin talked about this in storytellers on vh1... here it is:

    "The song "Sunny Came Home" is about arson, about deciding "not to take it anymore"... the lyrics that say "it's time for a few small repairs"...Sunny is going to burn her house down, and begin a new life, leave it all behind. When the song says "dry is good and wind is better" it's talking about the conditions for setting a fire."
    "I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control, and at times hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best .. "

    B-p, thank you!

    I always though 'dry is good and wind is better' refering to the kids.
    It's quite disturbing... to burn down a house must mena pretty bad memories of the past.
    You found this on the VH1 website?

    no, i was searching around google, and someone had a bit of a shawn colvin site and had this listed. yeah, this song has always kind of disturbed me. i always get this image in my head of some psycho pyromaniac being released from jail and coming home and taking revenge or something (with a "list of names")... i don't know. anyway, i wanted to check it out before i posted it so that i wasn't way off. and, that's all that i could find. apparently vh1 did an episode of storytellers with her and she talked about the meaning behind this song, and that's what i posted above. kinda creepy, eh?

    the part that really scared me what the part where it goes

    She opened a book and a box of tools
    Sunny came home with a mission

    and

    Sunny came home with a list of names
    She didn't believe in transcendence
    It's time for a few small repairs she said
    Sunny came home with a vengeance.

    it isn't like normal lyrics which spell out the exact event that is happening but insinuates what will happen. And I also got that part about the psycho being released from prison perhaps it's because 'sunny CAME HOME', like being released from prison or something.
