lyrics

A long night
Surrounded by people you love
And you don’t know
Yeah you don’t know how to stop feeling alone

The moonlight
And the air filled with cigarette smoke
And you don’t know
Yeah you don’t know if you can do this anymore

You used to feel like
No one understood
And even though some do these days
It doesn’t feel like you thought it would

And now you’re laughing at
A joke that someone told
But you can’t shake the feeling that
You’re always gonna be on your own
On your own

You’re just a lonely girl
In a sweat-stained skirt
In the corner of the room
Picking out the dirt

From underneath her fingernails
She tries so hard but to no avail
It always feels like no one’s listening
It always feels like no one’s listening

A cheap drink
On a porch in a rickety chair
And you can’t tell
Yeah you can’t tell what you’re supposed to do

Some old friends
People you haven’t seen for a year
And you can’t tell
Yeah you can’t tell exactly what they think of you

You used to think that everybody
Thought you were a piece of shit
And even though you know they don’t
You just can’t seem to let go of it

And now you’re asking
If you can have some more to smoke
And as the fire fills your lungs
You can’t help but wish you’d choke
Wish you’d choke

You’re just a lonely girl
With a sweat-stained skirt
In the corner of the room
Picking out the dirt

From underneath her fingernails
She tries so hard but to no avail
It always feels like no one’s listening
It always feels like no one’s listening
