[Spoilers E85]: So this is not a song that Scanlan sang on the show Critical Role...BUT SCANLAN LEFT SO THIS IS WHAT YOU GET! 

...kidding.  This is a song that Bill Berndtson on Youtube requested from me.  Brian Wayne Foster made this joke on his show Talks Machina, a Twitch/Alpha show where the cast of CR discuss the events of past episodes.  If you haven't seen the show, I highly recommend it.  The lyrics are here, the Youtube video is here, and the (free) mp3 download is in the audio player itself, above. If you have more requests for Scanlan Songs you want me to do, feel free to reach out to me @CrosswaitMusic


Somebody That We Used To Know

Now and then I think of when we were together

Like fighting dragons felt so crappy when you died

We thought you were in the right party

But you felt lonely in our company

But that was love and it's an ache I still remember


I guess you're addicted to a certain kind of magic

This residuum brings the end, always the end

So when we found that we could not keep Scan

You went and took your daughter by the hand

But no one here was ever glad that it was over


But you didn't have to cut me off

Make out like we never adventured, that we were nothing

I think we really need your love
But we do not know your mother and that feels so rough

No, you don't have to take suude solo

Have Jarrett collect your substances so you can slumber

I guess you really need that though

Scanlan's just somebody that we used to know

Scanlan's just somebody that I used to know
Scanlan's just somebody that I used to know


Now and then I think of all the times you pooed the sofa

Shit the bed then leaving, it was always something that you've done

Our pranks shouldn't have gone that way

Feeding into all the shit you say

We thought that you could let it go

And we wouldn't end up being just the party that you used to know
