Sugartooth - Brandi Carlile

Written by:Phil Hanseroth/Brandi Carlile/Tim Hanseroth

 

He wasn't really known for breaking the rules

When he arrived in the second year of my high school

He wasn't so much of a twist of fate

As a short turn up from a southern state

 

He was born with a sweet tooth he couldn't beat

Always trying to find himself something sweet

All that he found was a trouble and me

Or maybe trouble just found him

 

It was hard to hide that his heart had scars

He would stay up late talking to the stars

 

People tried to blame him for making bad choices

When he was only listening to the voices

And searching for some kind of deeper truth

 

Between the lines and the bible and living proof

 

There's no point now to judge him in vain

 

If you haven't been there you don't know the pain

 

He was a liar but not a fraud

Living proof that there was no god

 

Just the devil stiff as a rod

A slave to a sugartooth

 

His life became more than he could take

 

He found a bad habit he couldn't break

 

Nothing could tame him and nothing could hold him

He only took the pills when the doctor told him

Looking to help for the something sweet

 

To make his life feel as incomplete

 

What in the hell are you gonna do

 

When the world has made its mind up about you

 

He was a liar but not a fraud

 

Living proof that there was no god

 

Just the devil stiff as a rod

 

A slave to a sugartooth

 

He wanted to be a better man

Then life kicked him down like an old tin can

 

He would give you the shirt on his back

 

If not for a sugartooth

 

They found him lying on his bed

 

With a gun in his hand and a quiet head

 

His broken heart now is finally gone

 

But I know that he had to hurt for too long

 

To think he had fought it all on his own

 

Just to lose the battle and die alone

 

After so many years of feeling the loss

 

He finally made his way back home

 

And I helped put what was left in a box

And took it to a place called Jesus Rock

 

And scattered him all over jagged mound

As a symbol to all that the piece had been found

But not for a sign is left behind

With a hand stuck reaching back in time

 

To a place in which you can never unwind

I hope he found something so sweet

 

He was a liar but not a fraud

 

Living proof that there was no god

 

Just the devil stiff as a rod

 

A slave to a sugartooth

 

He wanted to be a better man

But life kicked him down like an old tin can

 

He would give you the shirt on his back

 

If not for a sugartooth

 

Ooh ooh ooh a slave to a sugartooth

 

Ooh ooh ooh a slave to a sugartooth

 

Ooh ooh ooh a slave to a sugartooth

 

Ooh ooh ooh a slave to a sugartooth
