You make me feel like I'm OK
I could be happy
Now I can sit not runaway
stupidly laughing
Wipe out all self-pity
It's slowing me down
Turn off feeling pretty
Dressing up dressing down

I walk around the city, out of my way
Looking for something
I've got all that I need to save my day
So why'm I running?

You said I should get professional help
that always makes me cry
I know I'm just an amateur but
I've gotta try

I had birthday party and it was packed
Got friends who love me
We hung a disco ball up and watched the lights
They were so lovely

You said I should get professional help
that always makes me cry
I know I'm just an amateur but
I've gotta try
I've gotta try

When exactly are we?
I get the decades mixed up
I like the streets when they're empty
I like the streets when they're empty
I like the streets when they're empty
I can make the rest up

I walk around the city
Out of my way
Looking for something
I've got all that I need to save my day
So why'm I running?

You said I should get professional help
that always makes me cry
I know I'm just an amateur but
I've gotta try

Every day is new years eve
Every night is the last night
Every day is new years eve
Every time is the last time

You said I should get professional help
that always makes me cry
I know I'm just an amateur but
I've gotta try
I've gotta try
