'Love You, Parasocially' is a song about parasocial relationships. A parasocial relationship is a one sided relationship between a fan and a content creator.

Being one sided, they are often exploited for monetary gain by the creator. On Youtube especially, the creator might talk informally as they would with a friend, have inside jokes, and say how much they care about their fans. The fact is they don't know their fans, and they care about them so far as they make them money. It may not be intentional, and there might not be a great alternative at the moment, but it is important for fans to be aware of this dynamic, and not have their entire social network composed of one sided relationships. Only real two way relationships can provide support during times of need.

Grape-kun is a penguin from a japanese zoo that fell in love with a cardboard cutout of an anime character or "waifu". As he was separated from the cutout, the internet made him famous as people related to the story of unrequited love.

LYRICS:

Fell asleep last night
To your voice in my mind
I’m not your only guy
I’m probably not your type

Black Mirror Juliet
You seem so sincere
I haven’t met you yet
But that’s just what I fear

I know it’s not meant to be
(I won’t let go)
Love you parasocially
(You don’t I know)

I know it’s not meant to be
(I won’t let go)
Love you parasocially
(You don’t I know)

I’m the problem too
Love the idea of you
You capitalize me
I add toxicity

Sitting in my room
Looking at my screen
At the perfect you
I can only dream

I know it’s not meant to be
(I won’t let go)
Love you parasocially
(You don’t I know)

I know it’s not meant to be
(I won’t let go)
Love you parasocially
(You don’t I know)

Iphone Waifu
Feel like grape kun
Always be my
Star in the sky

Iphone Waifu
Feel like grape kun
Always be my
Star in the sky

I know it’s not meant to be
(I won’t let go)
Love you parasocially
(You don’t I know)

I know it’s not meant to be
(I won’t let go)
Love you parasocially
(You don’t I know)
