Love Song
Five for Fighting Lyrics

Put away your tears and your sleepy eyes
Put away that bullshit, big boys they don't cry to their mommas
she'll be back soon
Put away your raincoat and make your bed
Take another bullet right to your head
Now, we're going on a picnic and we'll get there soon

And she says, maybe it's over
He says, there's plenty more fish in the sea
I say, don't go away from me

Now put away your dinner and have a snack
Tie your little brother up in a sack now
We're moving to the country and we'll get there soon (she says)

Now, pack up all the things that you don't deserve
Take another swing, well here comes a curve ball
I bet you can't hit it 'cause you'll swing to soon

And she says, maybe it's over
He says, there's plenty more fish in the sea
I say, don't go away, don't go away
Please don't go away, from me
But can you take it to hard
I'll never leave you

Take those damn pictures off of that shelf
Put away your mommy you don't need her
I found you a new one, she'll be here soon

And she says, my God it's over,
He says, I found another fish in the sea
I say, why me?
Why me?
Why me?
Why is it me?

A beautifully tragic song. I love it and it makes me so sad I don't want to listen ... but I can't stop.


I've never heard this song before. Beautiful, but sad.


Funky yet affectionate. jazzy yet smooth. Five For Fighting


This band never dissapoints :-)


Actually, it is Five For Fighting because in hockey, you get a five minute penalty for fighting, and he is a big hockey fan and player.


Anyone else think this is a song about divorce?


LOL this song was in my sis's CD compilation from her ex. He did not mention the name and band. After several years... I googled "lyric why me plenty fish" and finally got it here.


Five for fighting was a band from 1997 - 2003 but then it became a solo act from 2003 onwards

Bridges to the Unknown

Superman (It's Not Easy) was on this same album...this is still my favorite song from there.


I love this song, but I think I like the older version of it better. I have the tape that has the older's more melancholy, but i still love this song :>
