Lover Dearest

Album: Masterpiece Theatre (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • When Marianas Trench lead singer Josh Ramsay was 17 years old, he was battling a heroin addiction and was put into a rehab centre. In rehab, the addicts had to write a love letter for their drugs, which demonstrated to them how much they needed the drug, or how much they thought they needed it. Ramsay used the letter he wrote as the basis for "Lover Dearest." >>
