  • Lyrics
  • This song has a tragic side to it. Lead singer Bert McCracken wrote it about his girlfriend, who at the time and she was pregnant with his child. After the song was recorded, she died of a drug overdose, killing their unborn child as well. Before the tragedy, The Used were skeptical about putting it on the album, but when they found out what happened they had to put it on. >>

  • Jon from Mishawaka, Inin a way every single song on this album relates to the death of bert's girlfriend. there's no way someone could go through something like that and not somehow have it affect every part of their life. i think the fact that bert makes music for a living makes it even more true, since musicians tend to incorporate their lives into their music
  • Sheila~amanda from Lincolnton, Georgiasad song. i really feel for Bert!
