I’m alone in this life

and these old jeans are too tight

and now I can’t pick my feet off the floor

I try to laugh but I cry

my dignity’s undignified

Guess I’m really on my own

Love is like a little boy

no I’m not paranoid

but I’m on to you yeah yeah

Well I’m not 17

and I don’t want to be

so why am I hiding

Is it too late to call you on the phone?

too late to tell you I’m alone?

I wanna wake you from another lonely night

Too late to wonder where you are

too late to hold you in my arms

Cuz if you’re looking for wonderful, I’m wonderful

But I’m a very simple girl and I don’t fit into this world

The city lights leave me in a daze

And even though we’ve never met

you know what I’m sure to forget

some things you can’t change

I’m underneath, underneath

I’m underneath, I’m underneath
