Band Name Origins:

  • The guitarist (I honestly don't know his name) worked at a local Starbucks in Vancouver for a while in between recording their first album. Any given day he slaved over making customers a mocha (for exactly $4.95), he would say, "Here's your nickel back!" There's your band name origin. (Alan Cross - Explore Music) Submitted by: Darby Hen
  • They got the name when Mike Kroeger was working at Starbucks, selling coffee for $1.45 NOT $1.95. and Mike would have to, "give a nickel back." Submitted by: yeah right 2008

"Far Away"
Better Lyrics:
It was one day, a mistake
Some beans I ate
I point my hand at this random man
Who's to say where to point blame
but you know you know you know
I farted I farted all along
I farted I'll fart until I'm gone
Stop dreaming that it wasn't me
Stop dreaming that you'll be free from flatulence
You met me after work a "chair slipped" I'm a jerk
With me you'd withstand
All the smell to hang around
You'd give your ears and your nose
from buying febreeze you're almost broke
cause you know you know you know
You farted you farted all along
I farted I'll fart until I'm gone
Denying if it was me
denying won't make one free from it anyway
Original Lyrics:
This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know,
you know, you know
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore
On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
I'd give for us
Give anything but I won't give up
'Cause you know,
you know, you know
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore
