Five Fans

lyrics

I could write a whole album about you
But I don’t think I want to
You’ve already had songs written about you
By a guy who’s dead
And probably had a crush on you
How could I compete with that?
I don’t even want to try
(to copy his suicide)
And a hateful album by a boy whose heart you broke in two
Just like you did to me too
A CD your friends bought
And it made you angry
But I could never sing anything bad about you
Even though I probably should
But I like you too much for that
And my heart still feels so sad
Ben Gibbard’s got nothing on me right now
Wish I could grow a new pair of balls but I don’t know how
Like a depressed eunuch sitting on a couch

You should’ve never told me anything
Cause now it’s coming out when I sing
You should’ve never told me anything
If you didn’t want everyone else to hear it
All of my five fans
That I can count on one hand

You never really knew your father
He just wasn’t much of a father
I guess he didn’t want to bother
But I wouldn’t want to meet him anyway
I just wanted to meet you
And you’re so good just as you are
I couldn’t imagine you much better
Aside from you breaking my heart
That I could’ve done without
When you cut me open
Sunk your teeth in my arteries
Said it’s not you it’s me
And you knew it sounded cheesy
(and oh so cliche)

You should’ve never told me anything
Cause now it’s coming out when I sing
You should’ve never told me anything
If you didn’t want everyone else to hear it
All of my five fans
That I can count on one hand
