how did i end up here?
Andrew has said Synesthesia was inspired by fun. here is a clip but he’s talked about it many places more than that. The lyric “my friends are in the news collecting trophies for the songs they wrote when we lived in the shadow of the moon” is pretty obvious.
In Take Your Time Coming Home “of everyone who called, very few said we believe in you.”/”I’ve got friends who took my call, came courageous.” After singing that line at a Jack’s Mannequin show, Nate dedicated the song to Andrew: video. There’s also that blog post about how Andrew was the one to call to ask fun. on their first tour: link. In a seperate interview I can’t find, Andrew said he heard only one fun. demo before he asked them on tour cause that’s all he needed to hear to know they were good. I think on a Reddit AMA Andrew also said him and Nate had many phone calls when the Format broke up.
Those two are really close so I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more lyrics that were inspired by each other.

I’m sorry if my post is full of mistakes but I am italian and this is really emotional so i don’t really care
There’s not a way to thank them enough for everything they did, because without them I would be a really different person, and these are not just words. My life has been changing so much since the day I decided that I wanted to know more about them and I started laughing, crying, screaming and singing with them - and I mean it has got better
So thank you, Nate, Jack and Andrew, I’m so lucky that YOU have been by my side while I grew up, and I really hope that you will be by my side for the years to come. (But you will be, because I’ll never leave your side)
