In Annie Lennox' 1995 song, No More I Love You's, a young sounding voice (maybe Annie herself voicing a childlike voice?) says

They were being really crazy. We were all in the car, and you know what Mummy, everyone was being really crazy.

I'd love to know if this is "lyrics to make you wonder" or has an actual story behind it.


The below answers are from the two links provided below.

(The Lover Speaks about the monsters) I used to have demons in my room at night Desire, despair, desire, so many monsters Oh! But now... (I don't catch myself bouncing home Whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

[Spoken Interlude] (And people are being real crazy But we will only come And you know what mommy? Everybody was being real crazy

The monsters are crazy There are monsters outside)

    It's interesting - if you search around, you find other interpretations of what those words are ("We will only come/we were overcome/They were on the come/...). But, the question remains: is there a story behind this, or is it just words to make you think? – GreenAsJade Nov 25 '18 at 1:04
