"Don't Call Me Peanut" as written by Anthony S Raneri, Jack A O'shea, John Holohan and Nick Ghanbarian....
Drink up beautiful
I spiked your cup with angst and a heart attack,
'Cause I've got so much trapped and it's all because of you
So I figured you might like some back

But when I see her I'll tell her what's been on my mind all these sleepless night
She'll recite her excuses I'll put my tail between these legs of mine like I do all the time

I can't live my life knowing you'll be in his arms each time I blink my eyes
I know what goes on behind my back,
Every night I'm afraid I'll never leave,
Afraid I'll never know what's good for me

But when I see her I'll tell her what's been on my mind all these sleepless night
She'll recite her excuses I'll put my tail between these legs of mine like I do all the time

And now you say that,
You say you love me
Well I may have your heart, but he has your body
And now you swear that you're being honest,
But you're not honest, you never could be

But when I see her I'll tell her what's been on my mind all these sleepless night
She'll recite her excuses I'll put my tail between these legs of mine like I do all the time

    My OpinionRated 0 No, i believe you guys are all wrong. This song is about a guy who falls in love with bestfriend. But she is with another man.

    "Well I may have your heart, but he has your body"
    She will always love him (because they are bestfriends), but the other guy will have her physically (because they are lovers).

    "But when I see her I'll tell her what's been on my mind all these sleepless night. She'll recite her excuses I'll put my tail between these legs of mine like I do all the time."
    He will tell her about how he feels sometimes, but she just says that she has worst problems and put he puts his "tail" (problems) behind him and focus on her issues instead.

    "I know what goes on behind my back, every night I'm afraid I'll never leave, afraid I'll never know what's good for me."
    He is afraid he will be in love with her forever and she will not love him back. He is afraid he will be hung up on her forever, and he will never know "whats good for me", meaning he will never know that he deserves better, but wont go for better because he thinks she is the one.


    "I've got so much trapped and it's all because of you."
    He has so much trapped because he is in love with her and he cant tell her so he just keeps it all bottled up.

    General Commentthis has a very specific meaning to me...i have an ex-boyfriend i was with for a very long time and we broke up because i wanted to date someone else now that i turned everything upside down to go back to him, he's with someone else...i've been waiting for 1 month and this song describes everything so well...

    "I've got so much trapped and it's all because of you."
    -he makes me feel like i have so much trapped because i have based everything on him...and i can't tell anyone about him.


    "And when I see her I'll tell her whats been on my mind,
    All these sleepless nights, she'll recite her excuses,
    Put my tail between these legs of mine;
    Like i do all the time"
    -whenever i see him or talk to him i ask him when he'll be back, i ask him if he loves her, i ask him if he loves me. i have insomnia because i'm always stressing this out. i put my tail in between my legs and swallowed my pride if it meant him coming back.

    "Can't live my life;
    Knowing you'll be in his arms, each time I blink my eyes;
    Know what goes on behind my back; every night.
    Afraid I'll never leave; afraid I'll never know whats good for me"
    -i can't function as a human being when a lot of what i've learned from living is with him. just thinking she's hugging me hurts. i know everytime he sees her he sleeps with her. im afraid i'm stuck here, i know this isn't good for me.


    "And now you say that; you say you love me.
    Well i may have your heart, he has your body
    And now you swear that; you're being honest,
    But you're not honest, you never could be"
    -he says he loves me, on valentines day he came to my house 3am and said "i may be with her this night coming up but my heart and soul lay with you" but she has his body. He swears he's honest actions speak louder than words...and he'll never fess up to leave me...or her.



    he's been with her for 3 months i've been with him 4 years. i should move one...i'm just a masochist. hahaha.

    General CommentDon't call me Peanut!

    It's a paraphrased line from the Tv show "Dead Like Me".

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and no ones commented?
    It's a really different sound to the rest of the album but still awsome.
    The meaning's pretty obvious really. No point explaining it.

    General Commentah what a pretty song,
    I think its pretty obvious that is about a guy who knows he's girlfriend is cheating on him, but he cant come to terms with it, he can't confront her cause he knows she'll come up with all these excuses. And he knows shes just lying.
