Eminem Stan Lyrics

Last updated: 11/07/2012 01:45:37 PM

(feat. Dido)

[Chorus: Dido]
My tea's gone cold I'm wondering why I..
got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window..
and I can't see at all
And even if I could it'll all be gray,
but your picture on my wall
It reminds me, that it's not so bad,
it's not so bad..

[1st Chorus: volume gradually grows over raindrop background]
[2nd Chorus: full volume with beat right after "thunder" noise]

[Eminem as 'Stan']
Dear Slim, I wrote but you still ain't callin
I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom
I sent two letters back in autumn, you must not-a got 'em
There probably was a problem at the post office or somethin
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot 'em
but anyways; fuck it, what's been up? Man how's your daughter?
My girlfriend's pregnant too, I'm about to be a father
If I have a daughter, guess what I'ma call her?
I'ma name her Bonnie
I read about your Uncle Ronnie too I'm sorry
I had a friend kill himself over some bitch who didn't want him
I know you probably hear this everyday, but I'm your biggest fan
I even got the underground shit that you did with Skam
I got a room full of your posters and your pictures man
I like the shit you did with Rawkus too, that shit was fat
Anyways, I hope you get this man, hit me back,
just to chat, truly yours, your biggest fan
This is Stan

[Chorus: Dido]

[Eminem as 'Stan']
Dear Slim, you still ain't called or wrote, I hope you have a chance
I ain't mad - I just think it's FUCKED UP you don't answer fans
If you didn't wanna talk to me outside your concert
you didn't have to, but you coulda signed an autograph for Matthew
That's my little brother man, he's only six years old
We waited in the blistering cold for you,
four hours and you just said, "No."
That's pretty shitty man - you're like his fuckin idol
He wants to be just like you man, he likes you more than I do
I ain't that mad though, I just don't like bein lied to
Remember when we met in Denver - you said if I'd write you
you would write back - see I'm just like you in a way
I never knew my father neither;
he used to always cheat on my mom and beat her
I can relate to what you're saying in your songs
so when I have a shitty day, I drift away and put 'em on
cause I don't really got shit else so that shit helps when I'm depressed
I even got a tattoo of your name across the chest
Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds
It's like adrenaline, the pain is such a sudden rush for me
See everything you say is real, and I respect you cause you tell it
My girlfriend's jealous cause I talk about you 24/7
But she don't know you like I know you Slim, no one does
She don't know what it was like for people like us growin up
You gotta call me man, I'll be the biggest fan you'll ever lose
Sincerely yours, Stan -- P.S.
We should be together too

[Chorus: Dido]

[Eminem as 'Stan']
Dear Mister-I'm-Too-Good-To-Call-Or-Write-My-Fans,
this'll be the last package I ever send your ass
It's been six months and still no word - I don't deserve it?
I know you got my last two letters;
I wrote the addresses on 'em perfect
So this is my cassette I'm sending you, I hope you hear it
I'm in the car right now, I'm doing 90 on the freeway
Hey Slim, I drank a fifth of vodka, you dare me to drive?
You know the song by Phil Collins, "In the Air of the Night"
about that guy who coulda saved that other guy from drowning
but didn't, then Phil saw it all, then at a a show he found him?
That's kinda how this is, you coulda rescued me from drowning
Now it's too late - I'm on a 1000 downers now, I'm drowsy
and all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call
I hope you know I ripped +ALL+ of your pictures off the wall
I love you Slim, we coulda been together, think about it
You ruined it now, I hope you can't sleep and you dream about it
And when you dream I hope you can't sleep and you SCREAM about it
I hope your conscience EATS AT YOU and you can't BREATHE without me
See Slim; [*screaming*] Shut up bitch! I'm tryin to talk!
Hey Slim, that's my girlfriend screamin in the trunk
but I didn't slit her throat, I just tied her up, see I ain't like you
cause if she suffocates she'll suffer more, and then she'll die too
Well, gotta go, I'm almost at the bridge now
Oh shit, I forgot, how'm I supposed to send this shit out?
[car tires squeal] [CRASH]
.. [brief silence] .. [LOUD splash]

[Chorus: Dido]

Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner but I just been busy
You said your girlfriend's pregnant now, how far along is she?
Look, I'm really flattered you would call your daughter that
and here's an autograph for your brother,
I wrote it on the Starter cap
I'm sorry I didn't see you at the show, I musta missed you
Don't think I did that shit intentionally just to diss you
But what's this shit you said about you like to cut your wrists too?
I say that shit just clownin dogg,
c'mon - how fucked up is you?
You got some issues Stan, I think you need some counseling
to help your ass from bouncing off the walls when you get down some
And what's this shit about us meant to be together?
That type of shit'll make me not want us to meet each other
I really think you and your girlfriend need each other
or maybe you just need to treat her better
I hope you get to read this letter, I just hope it reaches you in time
before you hurt yourself, I think that you'll be doin just fine
if you relax a little, I'm glad I inspire you but Stan
why are you so mad? Try to understand, that I do want you as a fan
I just don't want you to do some crazy shit
I seen this one shit on the news a couple weeks ago that made me sick
Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge
and had his girlfriend in the trunk, and she was pregnant with his kid
and in the car they found a tape, but they didn't say who it was to
Come to think about, his name was.. it was you

"STAN" | Reviewer: Efraín Valencia | 11/7/12

Cool EMINEM you really are a great musician, full raper. Excellent. Congratulations. With this song named"STAN" you overpassed everything about music, let me tell you I have being trying to learn the lyric by heart but believe me it´s not that easy but I´ll keep on trying, One day not so far I´ll be singing "Stan", and pretending to be you when I have to do my presentation. Thanks a bunch EMINEM. Just keep doing your best and God may bless yourself as well as your family. Successes.

speechless | Reviewer: emmanuel sunday | 5/26/12

this is one of eminem's most intresting song it makes u keep wishing those stuffs didnt happen but it already been done,and its fucking crazy to kill yourself cos u dont get reply from ur best friend though its love but come to think of it no Nigerian would do that

skuxdeluxz!! | Reviewer: moarichicksforlife!!! | 5/25/12

the first time i herd this song i balled my eyes out. ive grown up with the songs of eminem. they inspire me to do well reach for my goals cause if i put my mind to it, ill have what ever i want. im in my early teens now. these songs have shaped me into a high achiever, because its shown me how to express my feeling, and what road NOT to go down. eminem im definately not your biggest fan but you are one of my insperations!!

Stan | Reviewer: Stanley Mitchell | 5/17/12

There is a possibility that i inspiried Marshall to write this song because i've been writing to him since he released the Slim Shady LP and to this day he has never once responded, in some of the e-mails i wrote to him i threatened to kill myself if he didn't respond, he didn't respond but i didn't kill myself, the reason why i didn't kill myself is because i wanted to stick around and listen to more songs from Marshall, not a day goes by that i don't listen to an Eminem song, he's more than just a rapper to me, he's my best friend

I Love Eminem - Stan. | Reviewer: Maxmallz | 1/11/12

Eminem has a song for every mood you're in. I know that i probably won't get a chance to ever see him. But anytime i listen to "Stan", i feel that WE'RE SO CLOSE. I Love You Man.

deep man deep | Reviewer: | 1/2/12

listen for starters i was very into rap when i was young now that im older i sorta switched over to rock and metal but i still listen to a little rap and this song has stayed with me for the long run i just wanna put the word out there this song may be old but its the classics that remain eternal and its the classics that will always stay with us shit like LMFAO and Ke$ha will never become as big as most rappers and rockers so they all they make is dance club music thats not the type of shit that you can listen to any day this is so live it and love it

Amazing | Reviewer: Amber | 3/21/11

This song is very serious compared to Eminem's other songs. They're usually funny and innapropriate, but this one is very deep and meaningful. The first time I heard this song I fell in love with it. It's very depressing but a very great song to listen to when I''m down. When I saw this video I cried, who could do that to their girlfriend? Honestly, anyone? Eminem must have a very vivid imagination to think of a song like this. But it's one of my favorites. Keep up the good work Eminem! :D

... I love it. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/23/11

I'm not a rap fan tbh ... but i love this song so much it really makes you think ... yes it's not based on anything real but it has a simple base line on any stalker fan. I can't help but listen to it even though it can get me down or send me into a trance. Love it x

Ohhh.... | Reviewer: The girl uNder thE bleachers | 1/18/11

WheN i first heard staN i didnt really pay any mind about the lyrics, i was working. and when it was over i was like "hey thats pretty cool, i gotta know what its about" so i replayed it, and i got goosebumps. (which is the most feeling i ever get out of songs, they've never made me cry) it was so sad, i didnt want to think about it!.....but i couldnt resist replaying it. its really great, but its very depressing.

realy realy good | Reviewer: Kazi hasnat sakib | 12/22/10

It's realy good song for me. Eminam u again prove urself u r da king of rap. This song shows that how is the crezy fan who try to contarct with his favorite rapper regorusly and he was gonna mad without having any response and than he died.......realy good eminem carry on

Thanks M&M fos this Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/13/10

All that I want to say is Thank you Eminem, this song is amazing!, excellent, beautiful, realistic. both the lyrics as the perfom is perfec, almost I feel that is another person when he sing the last part, also, the Didos´s part is perfect to change each part one another, I was is a similar situation with a girl, "just friend", I wrote to her, but she never answer me, and I become angry, and bother with myself for trust and her, so when i hear this song I feel exactly as Stan! Thak You Again Eminem, he's the best song writer the world ever had.

Sad feeling in real | Reviewer: Lahiru f'do | 9/11/10

This song is fascinating. I really incidently got heard to this one. I think the story about a fan of rapstar who has gone crazy about not replying him for his letters and finally got crashed with her car. Although the surface story simple it tells you that deep thoughts about someone you loves and u cannot get a feedback on that then u can gone wild. This song lyrics are well tallied with the melody which play on minor scale. Great work by eminem.

story cud be... | Reviewer: X1 | 9/2/10

some1 had bad affair.. missed a lot.. now da guy cannot settle..

so keeps on trying to reach older gf.. and misses on current one.. may be some unresolved issue.. cud have been avoided by talking.. but the bitch never bothers (I suppose the guy lost a lot because the bitch proposed him and then ditched him - something man cannot overcome easily)

he keeps on regretting why the hell he cared for the girl that he never liked in first place.. he keeps on thinking that why he wasted so much time and effort for some so broken girl...

the girl he never liked in first place.. but he fell in love enentually trying to help her daily... he sacrificed so much.. ignored his career.. fell behind.. only if he can help this girl and move on with his life.. but this girl seems so hard to help........ and he keeps on loosing... but enentually it helps the girl and she is back to life....

only problem NOW is that girl doesn't like him to be present around him that she has recovered.. she feels embarassed.. may be because he knows the girls past.. may be she feels embarassed that he is not as richer as the next dumbass...

hey girl, you want to live.. go but not like that.. don't except me to disappear silently.. don't feel embarassed.. talk to me and tell me to go.. I will take that.. but don't expect me to disappear.. yes, I lost a lot and we cannot be together... I have to start my life.. but atleast say goodbye.. scribble.. scribble.. no answer...

only difference is that I didn't accept other girl for I knew I was used........ so, noone else will be in my trunk and no I drive better than others.. I cannot die because I don't even fall ill..scribble scribble.. 12 yrs and counting.

song not a diss | Reviewer: kj52 fan | 8/10/10

Kj's song was not a diss. It was an attempt to show that he cares and is praying for eminem and his way of life. I'm not saying that there are problems with eminem and I'm not dissing him. From a christian point of view like kj's though he is concerned for the artist as well as the people who are influenced by his music. I'm just trying to shed some light on kj's song here.

ITS A WORK OF ART PEOPLE! | Reviewer: James | 7/29/10

Some of these comments are just idiotic. 1. The song is not based on a real person - its a general commentary on the fact that some people because obsessive stalker like fans, em once commented the name stan is symbolic of an over obsessive stalkerish fan - stalker + fan = STAN. Kj's song came after it and was a diss song toward eminem claiming that much like stans frustation, eminem didnt care about his fans that had helped to raise his profile and make him famous at the time (remember the MM Lp was released in 2000 he was only recently in the lime light). 2. for gods sake people its not emo. leave that joke of a music genre out of eminem's master piece. It is a deep song with emotion and meaning not a whiny little bitch with no nuts in a tight pair of jeans. 3. It doesent need to be based off anything, one of eminems most brilliant lyrical capacity's is his ability of story telling,his vivid imagry is so good that these stories appear real. Listen to murder murder which is his first attempt at story telling, brain damage on the slim shady lp is also a classic example of story telling that was partialy based on his child hood and "my fault" is another fine example of story telling that was however entirely fictional. The man is a lyrical genius and deadset the best rapper ever - hes eclipsed tupac fo sho, only em could pull off an epic like this :)
