The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful Stop me and steal my breath Emeralds from mountains and thrust towards the sky Never revealing their depth Tell me that we belong together Dress it up with the trappings of love I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above
[Chorus] I'll be your cryin' shoulder I'll be love suicide I'll be better when I'm older I'll be the greatest fan of your life
And rain falls angry on the tin roof As we lie awake in my bed You're my survival, you're my living proof My love is alive and not dead
Tell me that we belong together Dress it up with the trappings of love I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above
And I've dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead Tuned in, turned on, remembered the thing you said
The greatest fan of your life The greatest fan of your life

Eric from Peachtree City, GaI first saw Edwin McCain play at a converted gas station in downtown Charleston, SC (called Cumberlands) on a Wednesday evening in the early 90s while I was in the Navy. Came for the cheap beer/wings and stayed for the show. Early on, we knew that his music would take him places and saw him every time he played near us. And I've probably seen him play 40 times since. A small club in Newport, RI, Fuddrucker's patio in Hilton Head and even the 2019 summer concert series at a small, local venue in Peachtree City, GA. And I even got to know him a little bit personally during his early years. He truly appreciates his fans and has always been down to earth. Hoping that I get to see 40 more shows in the future.
Orlando from CaliforniaI’ve always loved singing this song even though I never knew what love suicide meant. It’s what brought me here. Btw, Edwin, the Starry, Starry Night song is actually called Vincent. :) But no biggie.
