Said you're too sweet for me sugar bomb
Maybe need a glass of water
And you're too good for me sugar bomb
Maybe think you need another

Party downstairs sound like lots of fun
But you're here with me so we don't need one
They want you, gonna have to bring it on
And drag you away with those handcuffs on
Oh sugar bomb

Love me baby one more time
Say that maybe you'll be mine
Love me baby one more day
Don't say maybe.. just stay

Said you're too sweet for me sugar bomb
Maybe need a glass of water
And you're too good for me sugar bomb
Maybe think you need another

  Like a wildflower in the sun
Well you'll grow back right where I picked you from
You don't know your power, do you?
But someone's looking out for you

Oh sugar
Please don't ever need another


"Sugar Bomb is a song I wrote from a fictional and farcical place. While autobiographical writing is a huge part of what I do and hopefully comes across with the honesty and sincerity with which it is written, I also love to take on a story and facilitate the translation of its emotions using my own experiences as fuel. For example, this isn't necessarily MY story - I didn't actually write this about someone with whom I was in a relationship at the time, but the feelings that drive it come from a very real place. Worrying that someone you care about so much will one day realize "you're not right for me," or "you're not enough for me" or just loving someone with all you are, is probably a somewhat universal feeling. However, there is also a silliness and joy to this song that comes across in the music and that usually gets our fans up and dancing. This one is SO fun for me to play. On an interesting note, I have always felt the best line in this song, and one I am proud of, is: "Like a wildflower in the sun, you'll grow back right where I picked you from." People who like this song have given me different interpretations of that line, and I hope they continue to feel what they will about what that line means to them, but what I felt when I wrote it was: "This person, like a wildflower, is a thing of beauty, sprung up and into the world, and my life, seemingly out of nowhere. I might choose it because I love its beauty and want that beauty to be closer to me, ('picking' it out of its habitat) but, also like a wildflower, I won't alter its fundamental course - it is still wild, still free, can still be at home in many places, and is strong and resilient. I can't contain it, tame it, own it, or control it. And I shouldn't..."
