An Amazing Song You’ve Never Heard That’s Now Stuck In My Head: “HIDEAWAY” by ERASURE

One Day The Boy Decided

To Let Them Know The Way He Felt Inside

He Could Not Stand To Hide It

His Mother, She Broke Down And Cried

Oh, My Father

Why Don’t You Talk To Me Now

Oh, My Mother

Do You Still Cry Yourself To Sleep

Are You Still Proud Of Your Little Boy

Don’t Be Afraid

You Don’t Have To Hideaway

The Boy He Was Rejected

By The People That He Cared For

It’s Not What They Expected

But He Could Not Keep It Secret Anymore

Far From Home Now

Waiting By The Telephone

There’s A New World

You Can make It On Your Own

Are You Still Proud Of Your Little Boy

Don’t Be Afraid

You Don’t Have To Hideaway. …

I Wish I Had More To Say About This Song, My Peeps.

It’s Very New To Me.

In Fact…

…TODAY Is The First Time I’ve Ever Listened To It.


I Love It Love It LOVE IT!

The Beat It Pumps Is Wonderful.

The Lyrics Are Masterful.

It’s An All-Around Crowd-Pleaser!

To ME…

…This Song Is About “Coming-Out” And The Trials And Tribulations Of Doing So.

I Didn’t Know That My Family Already Knew.

They’d Known For A Long While.

I’d Talked To My BFF About It…

…And I Even Asked Him To Tell My Mother, As I Was A Chicken-Shit-MO-FO, Fo SHO.

But She Already Knew.

As Did Some Of My Other Friends.

My Father Was The Last To Know, And It Shocked Him.

He Had No Clue.

Thing Is…

…I Didn’t Have A Clue, Either.

I Didn’t Figure It Out Until I was 20-Years-Old.

Most Guys Figure Things Out Much MUCH Sooner Than That.

But Not I.

I Was Oblivious.

I Knew I Had “Tendencies” But Nothing More.

A Phase.

That’s What I Was Convinced It Was.

Just A Phase.

I Played It Off As Long As I Could.



…I Gave In To Said Tendencies…

…And Finally Admitted What I Was…

…What I Am.

Talk About A Wildly-Weird Situation.

Coming-Out At 16 Or 17 Would Have Likely Been Much Easier On The Fam…

…On Me.

But, At That Point, It Was Just A Phase…

…Or So I Kept Telling Myself.


This Song…



…Really Sums It All Up.

I Can Easily Suggest It To Anyone AND Everyone.

It’s An Exceptional Little Ditty.

Y’all Should Give It A Go, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

I Know The Band…


…Isn’t Everyone’s Cup-O-Tea, But They Sure As Shit Are Mine.

As I Said…

…This Song Is New To Me.

I’ve Been Listening To It All Morning…

…On Repeat…

…Trying To Make Sure The Lyrics Say What I Think They Say.

And They Do.

So Why Not Blog About It…

…About Them!

Exactly, My Peeps!

Why Not, Indeed!

I’m Gonna End This Here.

Mainly Because I Need To Lay Back Down.

I’ve Used-Up Every Ounce Of Strength I Had Just To Write-Up This Little Number.

I’m Exhausted.

I Need A Rest.

That’s Sad, As I Slept The Bulk Of Yesterday.

But Whatever, Russ, Whatever!

Time To Rest.

Or, Do So As Much As Is Possible.

I Shall Try Try TRY!

Much Love, My Peeps!

Until The Next Time…!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-
