Eminem Feat. Dido - Stan

Album: The Marshall Mathers LP
Recording Year: 2000


[ Chorus ] [ Dido ]

My teaís gone cold Iím wondering why I..
got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window..
and I canít see at all
And even if I could itíd all be gray,
but your picture on my wall
It reminds me, that itís not so bad,
itís not so bad..

[ Verse 1 ] [ Eminem ]

Dear Slim, I wrote but you still ainít 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 him
There probably was a problem at the post office or something
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot him
but anyways; fuck it, whatís been up? Man howís your daughter?
My girlfriendís pregnant too, Iím bout to be a father
If I have a daughter, guess what Iíma call her?
Iíma name her Bonnie
I read about your Uncle Ronnie too Iím sorry
I had a friend kill himself over some bitch who didnít want him
I know you probably hear this everyday, but Iím 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 Ruckus too, that shit was phat
Anyways, I hope you get this man, hit me back,
just to chat, truly yours, your biggest fan
This is Stan

[ Chorus ] [ Dido ]

[ Verse 2 ] [ Eminem ]

Dear Slim, you still ainít called or wrote, I hope you have a chance
I ainít mad Ė I just think itís FUCKED UP you donít answer fans
If you didnít wanna talk to me outside your concert
you didnít have to, but you coulda signed an autograph for Matthew
Thatís my little brother man, heís only six years old
We waited in the blistering cold for you,
four hours and you just said, ďNo.Ē
Thatís pretty shitty man Ė youíre like his fucking idol
He wants to be just like you man, he likes you more than I do
I ainít that mad though, I just donít like being lied to
Remember when we met in Denver Ė you said if Iíd write you
you would write back Ė see Iím 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 youíre saying in your songs
so when I have a shitty day, I drift away and put Ďem on
cause I donít really got shit else so that shit helps when Iím depressed
I even got a tattoo of your name across the chest
Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds
Itís 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 girlfriendís jealous cause I talk about you 24/7
But she donít know you like I know you Slim, no one does
She donít know what it was like for people like us growin up
You gotta call me man, Iíll be the biggest fan youíll ever lose
Sincerely yours, Stan ó P.S.
We should be together too

[ Chorus ] [ Dido ]

[ Verse 3 ] [ Eminem ]

Dear Mister-Iím-Too-Good-To-Call-Or-Write-My-Fans,
thisíll be the last package I ever send your ass
Itís been six months and still no word Ė I donít deserve it?
I know you got my last two letters;
I wrote the addresses on Ďem perfect
So this is my cassette Iím sending you, I hope you hear it
Iím in the car right now, Iím 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, ďIn the Air of the NightĒ
about that guy who coulda saved that other guy from drowning
but didnít, then Phil saw it all, then at a show he found him?
Thatís kinda how this is, you coulda rescued me from drowning
Now itís too late Ė Iím on a 1000 downers now, Iím 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 canít sleep and you dream about it
And when you dream I hope you canít sleep and you SCREAM about it
I hope your conscience EATS AT YOU and you canít BREATHE without me
See Slim; {*screaming*
Shut up bitch! Iím trying to talk!
Hey Slim, thatís my girlfriend screamin in the trunk
but I didnít slit her throat, I just tied her up, see I ainít like you
cause if she suffocates sheíll suffer more, and then sheíll die too
Well, gotta go, Iím almost at the bridge now
Oh shit, I forgot, how am I supposed to send this shit out?

[ Chorus ] [ Dido ]

[ Verse 4 ] [ Eminem ]

Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner but I just been busy
You said your girlfriendís pregnant now, how far along is she?
Look, Iím really flattered you would call your daughter that
and hereís an autograph for your brother,
I wrote it on the Starter cap
Iím sorry I didnít see you at the show, I musta missed you
Donít think I did that shit intentionally just to diss you
But whatís this shit you said about you like to cut your wrists too?
I say that shit just clowning dog,
címon Ė 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 whatís this shit about us meant to be together?
That type of shitíll 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 youíll be doin just fine
if you relax a little, Iím glad I inspire you but Stan
why are you so mad? Try to understand, that I do want you as a fan
I just donít 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 didnít say who it was to
Come to think about, his name was.. it was you
