Lee, Ben - How Can That Be? Lyrics




I can't live without your breath
You are all that I adore
I'd say if you were the sun, I'd be the rays
But I don't think that's a suitable metaphor me

How can that be?

I don't know much but I know what I'm talkin' 'bout
I don't care about them anymore
I'd say if you were a kitty, I'd be the litter
But I don't think that's a suitable metaphor me

How can that be?

Enough talk learn to be subtle
Better ways of leaving than slamming the door
I'd say if you were the room I'd be the window
But I don't think that's a suitable metaphor me

How can that be?

  6. I.... l....

    nostalgia

  7. J.... D....

    First club show I ever saw was Ben Lee in London, Ontario Canada at Call the Office. It was right after this album came out. I think I was like 12. It was great.

  8. Y.... M....

    Quien vino por la peli sólo amigos?

  9. N.... u....

    Looks like he’s wearing one of those skin masks for movies

  10. A.... C....

    I searched 'Thats the way I like it Indie song'

  11. A.... A....

  12. B.... L....

    Ben you were there to support me

  13. L.... V....

    just feel like buying something from the local IGA

  14. B.... B....

    If you knew how to search for it, 2000’s music had some amazing artists

  15. B.... N....

    How did I get on this crappy song? I was searching for songs from Scrubs.

  16. S.... H....

    Great song, great video.

  17. H.... S....

    My head is a box full of nothing
    And that's the way I like it
    My garden's a secret compartment
    And that's the way I like it
    And that's the way I like it
    Your body's a dream that turns violent
    And that's the way I like it
    And that's the way I like it
    The winter is long in the city
    And that's the way I like it

    So please
    Baby please
    Open your heart
    Catch my disease

    I was backstage in Pomona
    And that's the way I like it
    She drank beer with coca-cola
    And that's the way I like it
    And that's the way I like it
    She told me about the winds from Santa Anna
    And that's the way I like it
    And that's the way I like it
    She told me she loved me like fireworks
    And that's the way I like it

    So please
    Baby please
    Open your eyes
    Catch my disease

    So please (PLEASE!)
    Baby please
    Come on
    Catch my disease
    Catch it

    They play good Charlotte on the radio
    And that's the way I like it
    They play sleepy Jackson on the radio
    And that's the way I like it
    And that's the way I like it
    I hear Beyonce on the radio
    And that's the way I like it
    And that's the way I like it
    They don't play me on the radio
    But that's the way I like it

    So please
    Baby please
    Open your heart
    And catch my disease
    So please
    Baby please
    Come on
    Catch my disease
    (catch my disease)
    (catch my disease)
    (catch my disease)
    (catch my disease)

  20. r.... ....

    Ben Lee is just so likeable

  21. F.... L....

    How I miss the mid 00s.

  22. B.... ....

    He might have the most irritating and annoying voice I’ve ever heard

  23. M.... K....

    I haven't seen the person sing and accentuate their tongue as much as this since a teenage Britney Spears. How can you even talk like that? For girl, it looked weird. For a guy to accentuate their tongue, it looks like they either have a speech impediment or it's just gross.

  24. A.... P....

    Mie Sedapppp

  25. M.... ....

    Oh wow, early appearance of Har Mar Superstar here

  26. M.... M....

    Ben Lee brought me here!✌🧩

  27. k.... ....

    Mie sedaaaaaaap.. semua sukaaaa~😂

  28. I.... G....

    Mie Sedap~ semua suka~!!! (ost. Mie Sedap 😋)

  29. m.... b....

    He has nice voice

  30. L.... H....

    Like si estas aqui por shyporter

  31. z.... ....

    The genius parts abt this song are that 1 it sucks and the key makes u hate it 2 he never mentions or specifies what the disease is. An std? Mental illness? Cancer? U don’t know

  32. L.... F....

    My first love was always playing this song in her beat up old Subaru.. theres some things you’ll never forget miss you Arielle

  33. S.... ....

    corny af

  34. A.... .....

    Ratatoullie brought me here

  35. z.... ....

    hi hey what's up I just came here to say: what the fuck

  36. m.... R....

    I heard this at the store and just had to double check the lyrics, and okay what in the actual fuck???

  37. c.... ....

    Movie "Gente que viene y bah" brought me here!

  38. a.... k....

    Such a happy song

  39. c.... ....

    I remember this song from the 2005 movie Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds, Amy Smart, Anna Faris and Chris Klein.

  40. F.... ....

    I heard this song while taking a shit at Walmart and hated it so much I had to remember it so I could speak out against it later. Nevermind the fact that KC and the Sunshine band already retired "That's the way I like it" with their awesome song. After seeing this video, I'm finally starting to agree with Kamau Kambon even as a white guy.

  41. T.... y....

    Do you know how shallow you feel to fall inlove at first sight with a female police officer?well played Macy well played(off to listen to hay babby(if youl be my girl

  42. L.... M....

    Now we know where Taylor Swift got her “Shake It Off” video idea from

  43. J.... P....

    This guy wrote this song after he got AIDS

  44. C.... ....

    The Sleepy Jackson brought me here

  45. S.... A....

    Everyone who thinks that this song is about stds is missing the point
    He's encouraging people to follow his example. Not catch a medical condition.

  46. K.... G....

    I hear this song every single day that Im at work

  47. P.... B....

    who knew this many years later that good charlotte would be what dates this song and not Beyoncé

    fucking everyone

  48. E.... ....

    fuckin JC Penny commercial

  49. s.... ....

    Definitely Aoki. Definitely Tillmann. Pretty sure that’s Mike Watt smashing the guitar at 3:07.

  50. Q.... a....

    Song would not play well in the Congo.

    Q.... a....

    Writing the same joke twice, a month apart, plays even worse.

  51. A.... H....

    Ben lee what were you thinking
    catch my disease
    You dumb wing nut Jew

  52. A.... H....

    Worst song ever and that’s the way i like it

  53. K.... E....

    Is that Har Mar Superstar??

  54. X.... ....

    Roy, is that you?

  55. Q.... a....

    I don't think this will catch on in the Congo.

  56. S.... E....

    This clown is absolutely tragic; and before anyone asks why I am on the site, I did it to make this specific comment. My mates and myself where down at the pub tonight and it came on MTV and we all decided that this song is shit!

  57. F.... Q....

    "They don't play me on the radio" lol yet they trolled us with this song on radio when I was in high school

  58. S.... M....

    Hamish and Andy - Everything is neat and practical! :D

  59. R.... p....

    Who remembers when they used this song for the IGA add?

  60. T.... W....

    Jew music

  61. N.... 5....

    Jesse Eisenberg had to something after The Social Network, so he made a song.

    N.... 5....

    Guess what. Im related to him

  62. s.... ....

    Mie sedaaapppp, semua sukaaaaaa

  63. F.... H....

    Mie sedaaaaap semua suka, jelas lebih rasa kuahnya, mie sedap i like it

  64. S.... N....

    Please die from your disease so I never have to hear that song again

    S.... N....

    You mean person

  65. E.... K....

    Just friends

  66. T.... W....

    I tried everything to find this song even googling "guy singing that looks like Christopher O'Dowd".

    T.... W....

    T W omg yes!

  67. t.... ....

    A moaner. Not as good as a screamer but better than a starfish.

  68. M.... W....

    This song has single handedly made me pro-palestinian

  69. S.... H....

    mie sedap i like it

  70. B.... B....

    Happy 40th birthday Ben Lee!!!

  71. J.... M....

    Look, let’s not beat around the bush here, the guy has AIDS. It’s tragic (although he clearly bought it on himself) but it’s a fact and he wants to sing about it so let’s not give him a hard time. See yer later.

  72. A.... G....

    I love Gurrrts!

  73. A.... G....
