Said The Whale Giveaway: Because I Love to Give, and I Have Fucks to Give

Back in February I pre-ordered Said The Whale‘s new album As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this album, i’m a huge Said The Whale fan but after a 3 year hiatus and loosing two band members it could go either way.

Three days later I made the split second decision to dive to Calgary and catch their midnight set at the BIG Winter Classic Music Festival and man am I glad I did. They had the same energy, the same passion, the glorious harmonies, all warped in a shiny new coat. Said The Whale is truly back!

The album pre-order came with an instant download including two tracks from the forthcoming album and two b-sides. One of the b-sides is a track called “Fucks to Give” and for the last month it’s been in super heavy rotation for me.

I fucking love having Fucks to Give.

I wish I could share the track with you. It’s fantastic but, hell you can’t even find the lyrics online. So I went back to my high school days and played, paused, hit rewind and played again until I could capture the lyrics to share with you.


Fucks To Give by Said The Whale

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

Because I love to give, and I have fucks to give

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

 

I got you – I’m the lucky one

I don’t fear the things I feared before

and I’ll let you hold back the door

And I want to know things like do you trust me

And if I had a different body would you still be

in love or would you be out the door

 

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

Because I love to give, and I have fucks to give

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

 

Somebody only wants you (x12)

 

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

Because I love to give, and I have fucks to give

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

 

You are beautiful inside and out

And you deserve to have love

You are beautiful inside and out

And you should feel respected

 

You, are you and no one else

You, are you and no one else

You, are worthy of real love

You, are worthy of love

 

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back

Because I love to give, and I have fucks to give

I don’t want to love someone who doesn’t love me back
