"My Song 5" as written by and Este Haim Danielle Haim....
I found it hard, tried to reserve
I'll get it right when I am heard
(Hot for me)
The man's his own
(Hot for me)
To her he'll go
(Hot for me)
But I'll be fine
(Hot for me)
'Cause I know

He's in her heart, on the floor thinkin' than I'll never know
I'll be up going through crazy shit I did for you
In my mind, in my head seeing all the words unsaid
Honey honey I am never coming home again

I've been lied to
So what's the truth?
Now I'm not gonna hide it all, keep it in all from you
I've been dying to know what you tried
You've been lying so
Honey I'm not your honey pie

He's in her heart, on the floor thinking that I'll never know
I'll be up going through crazy shit I did for you
In my mind, in my head seeing all the words unsaid
Honey honey I am never coming home again

If you want to see me baby please
Been holding on for eternity
Say you only want me
Missing you never led to much of anything

If you wanna know, if you wanna show
How it means, what it seems, seems to be,
Held by a thread, tried to forget
But I'll never let it go
Honey I'm not your honey pie

Tried to lie, dying to hear all lies
Trying to
Tried to lie, dying to hear all lies
Trying

He's in her heart, on the floor thinkin' than I'll never know
I'll be up going through crazy shit I did for you
In my mind, in my head seeing all the words unsaid
Honey honey I am never coming home again

I've been lied to
So what's the truth?
Now I'm not gonna hide it all, keep it in all from you
I've been dying to know what you tried
You've been lying so
Honey I'm not your honey pie

    Song MeaningI think this song is talking about how the narrator knows that her man is cheating on her. She goes through "crazy shit I did for you," meaning all the lengths she went to make sure he was happy and he still strays from her. She's angry at herself for putting so much effort into something the other half of the relationship continuously hurt.

    She says that "never let it go," meaning that she will never forgive him for what he's done to them. In the chorus, she says how "I'm not going to hide it all...from you," meaning she's not going to hide the fact that she knows from him. She's "been lied to," and she's going to be the better person here by putting it all out on the table.

    She's leaving him. She's "never coming home again." I specially like the line "Honey, I'm not your honey pie," because it gives a bit of insight and it adds to the "insult to injury" aspect of this. He's been calling her pet names, such as "honey pie," this whole time, and she's fed up with it. She won't accept the pet names any more. She knows it was all in effort to keep up the facade.

    Also, in response to the title and general sound of the song, it was said to be a tribute to "garage band" days of bands. I don't remember who said it, but one of the sisters said the title is a reference to how generally when recording the raw, original sound of songs, the tracks are named something simple like "My Song #," and "My Song 5" is the original name for this track. One of the sisters said that the general sound of this song is fairly raw and that's a further tribute to where these songs originate. I heard this on a track commentary that I found on Spotify.
