I Can’t Stand

I CAN’T STAND

 

I saw your pretty face and I fell over

I saw your pretty face, no

I played the games you play

But my heart stopped

Cuz I’ll put up with a number of things

But I can’t understand the meaning of you

 

I can’t stand the game

Cuz it makes me feel run down

I can’t stand the conversation with you

I can’t stand the nighttime

When you come home with me

And another conversation

How you don’t want a girl

And I’m waiting for tomorrow

Just to do it again

 

I wish you’d call all day

But I wait all week long

And I call you just to hear you say, “No,

I got some other plans”
And I could not believe your e-mail letter:
”Dinner and a movie with an ex-girlfriend,

And I hope you’re not too disappointed with that.”

 

I can’t stand the game

Cuz it makes me feel run down

I can’t stand the conversation with you

I can’t stand the nighttime

When you come home with me

And another conversation

How you don’t want a girl

And I’m waiting for tomorrow

Just to do it again

 

And now I feel quite lame

I saw you at the rockshow

And now you come and tell me how your life goes

And now I’m kissing you again

Cuz I can’t help it,

I can’t stand it, I love you so much

I’ll pull out all my hair just for a minute with you

 

I can’t stand the game

Cuz it makes me feel run down

I can’t stand the conversation with you

I can’t stand the nighttime

When you come home with me

And another conversation

How you don’t want a girl

And I’m waiting for tomorrow

Just to do it again

 

And another conversation

How you don’t want a girl

And I’m waiting for tomorrow

Just to do it again

 

 

 

Annie wrote this song during of one of her 10-mile runs that she used to do when she lived in L.A. and she was all about keeping in really good shape!  This song is actually about Gene McEwen, who later became Shut Up Marie’s drummer!  All these lyrics tell a true story, including the e-mail she received from McEwen when she thought they had plans for Halloween.  Then, much later in 2013, he invited her to be on a Metallica tribute CD as part of “Kilted Warrior”, and band to contribute their version of “Blackened” to the Metallica tribute CD “Puppet Masters” (2014).
