"Big Distraction" as written by and Thomas Dumont Gwen Stefani....
You're my concentration
Everything else is a bore
I've got myself snagged on you
No self-control now

All that I want to do
Sleep in the shadow of you
For the rest of my life

Now we can chisel
Chisel off built up walls
Of pain deposited from past lovers
Memories they can sleep
And we can live comfortably
For the rest of our lives

Wrong or right
Shipwrecked into you
Situation is foolish
Put up a fight
You're my big distraction
Obvious companion
I'm falling fast
Like an avalanche

Indentured servant
A slave to a slave
Thank god for my hopeful heart
And for mutual feelings
Look how it's balanced now
Maybe we'll just settle down
For the rest of our lives

Wrong or right
Shipwrecked into you
Situation is foolish
Put up a fight
You're my big distraction
Obvious companion
I'm falling fast
Like an avalanche

Look how it's balanced now
Maybe we'll just settle down
For the rest of our lives

    General CommentI think some of the words may be wrong. I THINK. I just always thought it was a little different and it sounds like it when you listen to it but I may be wrong.

    "Or biggest companion" = "Obvious companion"


    "But I will fight" = "Put up a fight"


    Anyway.. this song is simply about having a crush on someone. And how when you have a crush it seems like they're the only person you want to see, talk to and be with. And sometimes it can be a "big distraction" to everything else in your life.

    General CommentI think this song is finding comfort with a new companion
    and not worrying over past losses.
    How new things to think about burt the past in an avalanche
