Finally, Paula performed a beautiful solo version of her song "Hush Hush Hush," from This Fire. The song tells the story of a young man dying of AIDS who finds comfort -- and finally acceptance -- from his father but lately I can't help think of it as a lullaby of sorts for the recent LGBT victims of suicide, especially with these lyrics from the bridge: "Oh maybe next time / You'll be Henry the 8th / Wake up tomorrow, Alexander the Great / Open your eyes in a new life again / Oh maybe next time /You'll be given a chance."
