Stoned

Album: Hitchhike to Rhome (1994)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about a man who is too afraid to get into a relationship with a woman he loves because he fears another rejection. His fear is crippling and he is tired of having his heart broken. It is a song unlike most other Old 97's/Rhett Miller songs because the man is the reason the relationship won't work rather than the woman having broken the heart of the singer. >>
