Hudson Taylor – Off The Hook lyrics

[Verse 1]
Are you taking me for a ride?
If so, I won't be by your side
Maybe once I looked up to you
Thought I loved you but
Now it's time to confess

[Pre-Chorus]
Take one, you gotta take us all
Try to break us, we won't fall
Can't believe I looked up to you
Thought I loved you but
Now it's time to confess

[Chorus]
What were you thinking
You'd get off the hook with no pain?
You won't defeat us so treat us
Like children again

[Verse 2]
True blood is wearing thin
We all know what hides within
Told you once, no means never
And that's forever
You don't have our respect

[Pre-Chorus]
Take one, you gotta take us all
Try to break us, we won't fall
Can't you tell no means never
That's forever and no, you can't buy respect

[Chorus]
What were you thinking
You'd get off the hook with no pain?
You won't defeat us so treat us
Like children again

[Bridge]
The truth is our!
(What were you thinking you'd get off the hook)
Oh, shout it out!
(What were you thinking you'd get off the hook)
Oh, the truth is out, the jury's in
You should notice by now, don't you know what she means to me?

[Chorus]
What were you thinking
You'd get off the hook with no pain?
You won't defeat us so treat us
Like children again
The truth is out!
Shout it out!
Oh, the truth is out
Oh, oh-oh-oh oh
Shout it out!

    This song is about the potato famine. The "she" that is referred to is Ireland. Hudson Taylor are Irish and therefore feel very strongly about the potato famine. They exclaim that "you" (the potato famine) won't defeat us because Ireland United and came out strong. Very powerful song, with important political message.

    This song is about a Father who ran off (hooked off) when his children were little. No their mother has been gone and the Father tries to get in touch with his children again. But they don't have respect for him. He tries to get them against each other by only take one kid with him, but they don't let that happen and can finally say the truth about their feelings for him.
