my mother and I had a really rough history she moved me to Arkansas from ohio got hooked on Crystal meth and left me to fend for myself at 16 I hated her for years but one day years later I heard this song and thought about how before that she was the only one who cared about me and told myself that it's time to reconnect with her she did give me life to find out she clean up and found Jesus so it was a whole new mom it was great

Anybody listening in 2018?
William Brender
this is a super hard song to sing. she is freaky talented
Donna Kiestler
That's what us old farts call good music 🎶 🎶 🎶

I'm a guy and I'm not ashamed at all to say I dig Etheridge and her powerful voice and music. this is coming from someone who also likes death metal and other extreme music. it just goes to show there are many different styles that speak to me in a musical sense.
Scott Bowles
the lyrics could easily be unisex. a man could relate to the theme of broken promises and destroyed feelings just as easily as woman. one of the best singers ever.
Hot Rod Kirk
still a kick ass tune years later
Lorenzo Herbert
my mother was obsessed with this song and album

I can only say one thing. Thank you. Today, I decided to listen to all of the sings my mother sang the day before she died, and this song brought tears to eyes, both from happiness and despair... Thank you. As messed up as that sounds, thank you.
T Hughes

"Go on believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong" At your own peril.
david bowman
Lol I think all mothers loved this song. I love this song it's awesome and fits.
Clay Cooper
one of the best mix of lyrics, voice, and emotion . "I've been here before, I'm locking the door, and ain't going back again"
Ruth Ann Kimble
I wish that person would understand this
morghannadelacroix
I dare my man to find another woman who could walk across fire for him, unburnt. It's not going to happen. But he's a man that doesn't understand...... I love him, but I'm really beginning to feel sorry for him, he won't understand what he's losing until it's too late. And yes, I love this song. I wish more people understood what true love is..... I don't reply to comments. Think for yourself.

i heard this song on cleveland show low rider episode and i love this song now !!!!
Joseph Toscano
To me it sounds like the other girl does not want to get into a serious lesbian relationship. She wants to jump from sexual relationship to sexual relationship, avoiding whatever "demons she is hiding from," likely her fear of being in a true romantic relationship which would require her to come out of the closet. Instead, she wants to have secret lesbian lovers, "hold them until the screaming is gone," and then move on with no commitment. The other girl tells her "nothing's wrong," as though she is also satisfied with such a shallow relationship. Amazing song regardless of how you interpret it!

A classic, even back in the day. A favorite of mine that has yet to go away. Memories of  .  .  . way hardcore slamm'N cruiz'N & booz'N on the amped 4-way Zapco sound sys. .  .  .  that makes you run .  .  .  that you're hiding from Oh yea, baby.  You're the rock star.  Thanks for the memories. And thank you, Gator Girl.  Excellent job.  Way nice job. P.S.  Melissa, I still think you should have dropped that guy. And no, Tina Turner could not sing this song;  Melissa had / has it down pat  -it's hers.

OMG!!! My Jennifer does Melissa well no disrespect. Better than Our beautiful Melissa. Melissa I wish and pray you could hear our Jennifer Carter... The Queen of Kariokie on the Crystal Coast of N.C. I so crave your music. I met Jennifer and was her 6 year old son. They are my heart although I moved to Alaska. Please never stop that passion. Thanks. Sophia Weeks

Ethridge if it wasn't for Jennifer the "Queen of Kariok" on the Crystal Coaster of N.C. I was her son Chris' nanny. One night she invited me to this Kariok thing. No disrespect but I have told her since that night she can do Melissa Ethridge....better than Melissa Ethridge. I truly mean no disrespect but she has that passion you protray when you throw it down. I've been blessed with you on my phone here in Alaska missing my N C. family. Your music keeps me grabbing onto my day as our Janice Joplin did . Thank you,. Sophia W
