Don't Call Me Sugar

Saint Nine

Don’t Call Me Sugar is our first release from Bangkok-based Korean electronic producer Saint Nine. An eclectic tropical electro-pop track infused with latin-cuban melodies and instrumentation, topped with vocals by an unnamed two-time grammy nominee, Don’t Call Me Sugar tells a story of romantic betrayal. “The song is about a man who was cheated by his girlfriend. He’s probably a lot better off without her. It will just become another bittersweet memory at the end of the day for him. My goal was to write a catchy chorus for this track, that was also easy to sing along to. I wanted sad lyrics for the song but with an irresistible beat that would put listeners in the mood for dancing. Nothing too energetic, just enough to make people want to move and dance.”

[Verse 1]
Can you send some trust our way
It doesn’t live here with us anymore
You call me sugar to impress me
And again you’re knocking on another guy’s door,

[Pre-chorus]
Nightmare comes a-creepin’
Whenever I imagine you in his arms
I haven’t been sleeping
I keep my eyes wide wide wide open

[Chorus]
Don’t call me sugar
Don’t call me honey
I’m bittersweet
I’ve lost the taste
Don’t call me sugar
Don’t call me honey
I’m bittersweet
I’ve lost the taste

[Verse 2]
Baby I shook hands with my fate
when I let you stay inside my heart
You’re still my favorite mistake
I can’t share you but can’t be apart
can’t be apart

[Pre-chorus]
Nightmare comes a-creepin’
No shut-eye here, when will I sleep again?
You only got eyes for him
So mine stay wide wide wide open.

[Chorus]
Don’t call me sugar
Don’t call me honey
I’m bittersweet
I’ve lost the taste
Don’t call me sugar
Don’t call me honey
I’m bittersweet
I’ve lost the taste
(Don’t call me sugar
Don’t call me honey)

[Bridge]
Now, I’m drunk with heartache
This bitter taste won’t go away no more
Cause you’re not my sweetener
You’ve made me too much bitter
There’s no trust between us now,
I’ve never thought this love end,
you’ve never loved me at all

[Chorus]
Don’t call me sugar
Don’t call me honey
I’m bittersweet
I’ve lost the taste
Don’t call me sugar
Don’t call me honey
I’m bittersweet
I’ve lost the taste
Don’t call me sugar
