Sacrifice

Songfacts®:

  • Don't you guys love it when your girl spends ages getting ready? Well, the moral from this songfact is don't get uptight, instead use the time profitably. This is what Silverstein frontman Shane Told did when he was waiting for his girlfriend. He explained to Alternative Press magazine: "She was getting ready in the bathroom, and you know how long girls sometimes take in there. I picked up a guitar and was just fooling around. I came up with the intro guitar riff, the verse riff and the bridge riff in about five minutes. It was funny because once she came out and was ready to go, I wasn't because I wanted to finish writing the song. I had to record it on my computer really fast in case I forgot how it went."
