It’s a big mistake
50 days, 3 months away
I’d be laughing today
But your voice on the phone gives me no reason
Don’t take from me
My heart is barely beating
Don’t take from me
I’m falling down

All I want to do is lie in bed with you
All I really ever need is you
All I got to do is give up all I have to be with you

It’s a different day
1500 miles away
Why would you want to stay?
So take a look around

All I want to do is lie in bed with you
All I really ever need is you
All I got to do is give up all I have to be with you

All I want to do is to be close to you
All I want to do is to be next to you
All I want is you to give up all we had to be
I can’t remember why I’m here
If you’d let me spend my life with you

December’s gone
It came and went

(All I really need is you
I’m waiting here for you)

December’s gone
It came and went

    General CommentThis song was a secret for awhile. Mainly because the lyrics were a bit confessional in regards to a relationship I was going through. I feared that if my girlfriend discovered the paper with the lyrics, we'd have to confront our issues. A band from Santa Barbara called Bright Life inspired the music of this song. I always admired their use of open chords in their rock songs, something that Sugarcult doesn't do very often. Kenny's drum beat in the beginning of the song is very important. He keeps time on the rim of the tom. This is where we hear the "tick-tick tick" sound. It sounds very much like a clock and gives the track a nice ambient space. Lyrically the song is about about space and feelings of being away from home. I think these two ideas are very important to eachother and add to the songs mono verse qualities. The song's lack of bass in the verse arrangement is also something that we have never ventured into before. My favorite part of this song is the end,"December's gone, it came and went". It sums up best the way I felt about myself and the situation at the time. The song was also very difficult to record. It took three different attempts to record the rhythm guitar parts mainly because we couldn't keep our guitars in tune. Marko's intro riff is my favorite thing he played on the entire record. It was something he came up with the last night in the studio inspired by candles, coffee and chain smoking cigarettes.

    This song is probably my favourite off the album right now. If I'm sad I can just put it on and it cheers me up in about half a minute. Sugarcult are such an awesome band.

    General CommentI dont think its about a relationship he's sick of at all. I think its one he despirately wants to have. He's willing to make all these sacrifices to be with her, but its not happening. Makes me think about my current situation

    General CommentYea, the guy is in a long distance relationship with a girl, and he has to wait three months till he can see her again"50 days, 3 months away" unless he gives up everything and goes to be with her, because he desperately wants to be with her and he thinks she might give up"Don’t take from me" he's saying don't break up with him and don't go away because she is all he really wants.
