lyrics

I could never quite pull it off
Because the haircut and painted on jeans
Seemed to be never enough
They said, "you should be ashamed of those teeth
Hide them and stain them with the flavor of the week"
And when they said, "there's nothing new under the sun"
I sang to the moon to turn it blue
And in my veins the tides are coming in
It wasn't so much the spilling as it was the spreading thin

She was standing alone again in that little black dress
And if she became a silhouette, that would have been best
Because I was cut from a different cloth
See, I did not put on airs
I was no one
And she was aware

There lives a stranger inside of me that you will never know
Because a heavy hard heart is worth its weight in gold

I'd never ever leave a stone unturned
And I never didn't love a girl who loved me first
And I could never be your one and only
Be your one and only lonely one
