"Fiend" as written by and Pugh/pepper/roberts/sanders/lee....
i see you all the time
i see you in a video
running through my head
i hear that you're a fiend
you love and let nobody know where you go

why didn't you come back to me?
i'll give you whatever you want
turn around on the way out
and you will find
i needed you all the way
now if you don't mind

i never needed anything,
anything but this tonight
i needed you to tell me what was wrong

why didn't you come back to me?
i'll give you whatever you want
turn around on the way out
and you will find
i needed you all the way
now if you don't mind

this is just like everything
i told you he would say
why wouldn't you just listen
so it wouldn't end up this way

why didn't you come back to me?
i'll give you whatever you want
turn around and you will find
i needed you all the way
now if you don't mind

why didn't you come back to me?
i'll give you whatever you want
turn around and you will find
i needed you all the way
now if you don't mind

    General CommentAhhh. I love this song.

    fiend Audio Help /find/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[feend] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
    –noun
    1. Satan; the devil.
    2. any evil spirit; demon.
    3. a diabolically cruel or wicked person.
    4. a person or thing that causes mischief or annoyance: Those children are little fiends.
    5. Informal. a person who is extremely addicted to some pernicious habit: an opium fiend.
    6. Informal. a person who is excessively interested in some game, sport, etc.; fan; buff: a bridge fiend.
    7. a person who is highly skilled or gifted in something: a fiend at languages.

    I don't think he's referring to the devil here, I believe he's referring to himself being a fiend to her so probably closer to definition #5 instead of being an opium fiend, he's a fiend for this girl's love or lack of.

    He's wanting her to come back, and he says "I needed you, I know you needed me." So he wonders why she keeps walking away from him when it's obvious they both need each other. She spends a lot of time on his mind, and he can't seem to escape her although he probably wishes he could.

    General CommentI think this is a situation every one experiences. The one we need decides to runaway. it sounds like they didnt think the other person appreciated them and thats why they left and the singer is saying "ive always needed you" which is once again I think something everyone goes through.

    General Comment"i see you all the time
    i see you in a video
    running through my head"

    I think it's about somebody becoming famous and forgetting about the ones that cared about them before all that crap, even though promising never to forget them.


    Then the rest is about how he is angry that she didn't come back to him when she said she would, and that he had always loved and cared for her, before all the fame and whatever, he cared for her always, and she never appreciated that, and then she fell into another relationship with someone who didn't really care for her as a person as much as, well, her stardom.
    (this is just like everything
    i told you he would say
    why wouldn't you just listen
    so it wouldn't end up this way)


    Oh, and I love the Alternate version of this song. The acoustic one. My favorite Cartel song.

    General CommentI think that this song is about a girl who the writer always thinks about ("i see you in a video running through my head"). He loves her, and he's trying to tell her that he'll treat her better than anyone else.

    this is just like everything
    i told you he would say
    why wouldn't you just listen
    so it wouldn't end up this way

    How could you leave a guy who says something like that? He wants her back (but I don't really know if he ever had her in the first place... maybe they were just friends?).

    Anyways, ellie117, i agree, the alternate (acoustic) version of this song is amazing. Hands down favorite Cartel song.

    General Commentit's about heartbreak. The girl left the guy, and he's a wreck over it. He just wishes she would come back and care about him like he cares about her.

    Poor guy.

    General Commentno, it's actually called 'fiend'.
    will even said this at a concert i was at. he said that the actual name is 'fiend' but some people think it's called 'all the way', which is isn't.
