Sick Cycle Carousel

Album: No Name Face (2000)

Songfacts®:

  • Jason Wade, the singer songwriter guitarist from Lifehouse, said: "It's about my relationship with my girlfriend. There was a specific time when we felt the struggles of going through a relationship, of trying to communicate and going through all the things you go through to get to that point of real depth. I wrote the song during the most crucial time when we were either going to break up, or continue our relationship." >>

  • This was the second Lifehouse single. It didn't chart on the Hot 100, in part because their debut single "Hanging By a Moment" kept getting airplay, over-saturating the band.

  • Lahni from Perth, AustraliaThis song is awsum!! Jason has a really great voice and the band is excellent at making love songs.
  • Hope from Florence, MtI really like this song. The video is kind of freaky, but it's still good. Hi Robert, by the way. Ha ha.
  • Robert from Mountain Lakes, NjThis is a great song by Lifehouse-probably one of their best next to "You and Me". Let's get some more comments on this one, eh?
