I Google you
Late at night when I don't know what to do
I find photos you've forgotten you were in
Put up by your friends

I do, I Google you
When the day is done and everything is through
I read your journal that you kept that month in France
I've watched you dance

And I'm pleased your name is practically unique
It's only you and a would-be PhD from Chesapeake
Who writes papers on the structure of the sun
I've read each one

I know that I should let you fade
But there's that box and there's your name
Somehow it never makes the pain grow less or fade or disappear
I think that I should save my soul and I should crawl back in my hole
But it's too easy just to fold and type your name again, I fear

I Google you
When I'm all alone and don't know what to do
And each shred of information that I gather
Says you've found somebody new
And it really shouldn’t matter
Ought to blow up my computer
But instead...
I Google you

    General CommentBrilliant lyrics!!!

    Amanda says on the version I have that "That song SHOULD be funnier, but it's actually just so true it's SAD". Cracks me up every time :P

    Lovelovelove it!

    As for the meaning its pretty self explanitory - obsessivly stalking a friend late at night via the internet.

    General CommentI think the song was written by Neil Gaiman.

    And Amanda is right, hello_ily. It really should be a funny song, but it's just... right on the nail. The internet has made stalking your ex's mega-easy. XD
