Falling in love is sometimes hard
Writing a love song is even harder
Better to leave that to someone else
Someone madder
But this is a song about feeling left out
And this is a song about not being ready
To do what you’ve been told to do
This is the last drink I’m ever gonna have
This is the way that its making me feel
I used to come here to have a good time
But I could feel like this at home
And the couples walk by and they give me the eye
And I can see that the girls just a little bit jealous
Well anytime you want to swap just stop me
Yes people have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
You’re not lonely
I am baby
So the couples walk by and they give me the eye
And it seems like the boys got a thing for me
Well my advice is not to get involved
And closing time’s now non-existant
So I could stay till judgement day
I could stay till I get bored of the couples walking by
Yes people have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
You’re not lonely
I am baby
Oooh ooohhh
You’re not lonely
I am baby
A million people in the cosmos tonight
Must be rare in this age of life
But none of them can hold a candle to me
And the couples walk by and they give me the eye
But that’s not what I what I walk
Around the block and never come back one day
I walk around the block and never come back one day
Yes people have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
You’re not lonely
I am baby
Oooh ooohhh
You’re not lonely
I am baby
