Addicted ~ Saving Abel

Saving Abel is an American rock band formed by Jared Weeks and Jason Null in 2004. The band’s name references the biblical story of Cain and Abel. Null came up with the name saying “I Googled the story of Cain and Abel and found a line about ‘there was no saving Abel,’ which just jumped out at me.

Jared Weeks and Jason Null formed the band in their small hometown of Corinth, Mississippi in 2004. Weeks was playing guitar at his best friend’s house, when Null, who was in a rival local group walked in to rehearse with his band. Within days of that meeting, Null and Weeks were writing songs for the future Saving Abel band. In early 2005, the pair’s songs caught the ear of noted producer Skidd Mills (ZZ Top, Saliva, and Robert Cray), who took the band into his 747 Studios in Memphis.

Saving Abel gradually came together with guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor, and drummer Blake Dixon. Weeks would toss Saving Abel demos onto the stage whenever bigger bands played in town.

Addicted

Jared Weeks remembers:

“I used to work at a hospital. I’d have to be there at 4:30 in the morning drawing blood. I’d wake people up and stick a needle in their arm. I’d be walking around the hospital, singing ‘Addicted’ in my head, writing down the lyrics on patients’ clipboards and doctor script pads.”

I’m so addicted to all the things you do
When your going down on me in between the sheets
All the sounds you make with every breath you take
It’s unlike anything when your loving me

Oh girl let’s take it slow
So as for you, you’ll know where to go
I wanna take my love and hate you till the end
It’s not like you to turn away
From all the bullshit I can’t take
It’s not like me to walk away

I’m so addicted to all the things you do
When your going down on me in between the sheets
All the sounds you make with every breath you take
It’s unlike anything when your loving me

Yeah

And I no when its getting good
For the times we spent trying to make this love
Something better than just making up again
Its not like you to turn away
From all the bullshit I cant take
Just when I think I can walk away

I’m so addicted to all the things you do
When your going down on me in between the sheets
All the sounds you make with every breath you take
It’s unlike anything
I’m so addicted to all the things you do
When your going down on me
All the sounds you make with every breath you take
It’s unlike anything when your loving me

Yeah

When your loving me

How can I make it through all the things you do
There’s just gotta be more to you and me

I’m so addicted to all the things you do
When your going down on me in between the sheets
All the sounds you make with every breath you take
It’s unlike anything, Its unlike anything
I’m so addicted to all the things you do
When your going down on me
All the sounds you make with every breath you take
It’s unlike anything
I’m so addicted to you
Addicted to you

Left the madness of worldwide tours with bands, cleaned up my act and went into the relative sanity of sound engineering for television series. Currently working as the Director of Sound for a television series being filmed in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I am always on the lookout for interesting videos, old music, and fun.
