Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Seeking emotional rather than physical intimacy, a man asks a woman to share her background, secrets and dreams ("Take Me There"). "Every Day" thanks a partner for faithful, unconditional support, while "Secret Smile" marvels at her ability to brighten an ordinary day and turn rain into waterfalls. Sorting through fragments of his broken heart, the singer accepts responsibility for his pain on "Better Now" ("Next time [I'll] own my mistakes/Not just pass off all the blame ... Guess it's up to me"). "It's Not Supposed to Go Like That" is a sad morality tale in which a boy dies playing with Daddy's gun, and the decision to drink and drive costs teens their lives. Putting years of romantic frustrations in perspective, a man thanks God for the bumpy roads that led him to his true love ("Here"). A lady liberates herself from a constricting relationship on "No Reins" ("She said, 'Oh, I gotta go and find me'/Oh, she found the strength to break free"), however ...

Objectionable Content

It's unclear whether she's fleeing a boyfriend or a marriage (the latter would be unjustified). Resigned to the fact that his lover is leaving, a guy pleads for one more night of sex on "Help Me Remember." A girl's greatest virtue is that "She Goes All the Way" ("No limits/No lines are drawn ... She takes my hand and the dance begins").
