Song Description

In relationships, a potential disagreement -- by the response of the message recipient -- can result in bad or good. Sometimes it's best to use a little expression discretion and "push" the right "button." It might just take you somewhere you'd really like to go.

Story Behind the Song

No back story. Just pure craft.


There's two sides to the story, so I'll tell 'em both
Each one should result in attitudinal growth
They spent a long time almost looking for a fight
But now they may be learning how, mmm, to get it right

When one would say something that struck the other one wrong
Without much thought, the comeback was really strong
Then before they knew it, oh, the fight was on
After too much of that, mmm, the love is gone

There's two kinds of buttons you can push
One will take you places, mmm, you surely want to go
The other? More like falling in a rosebush
One's a go-go, one's a no-no
They've been around long enough to know


The one needs to understand what not to say
And the other needs to comprehend when to let it pass
It can be the difference in a bad or a truly great day
When it finally sinks in, someone moves to the head of the class

So why push that bad button when there's another choice?
Like using what we might call your bedroom voice
This lesson seems to come with age when it comes at all
The choice is clear: making love or having a verbal brawl


Hey, babe, you're looking really hot tonight...
