It's always been up to your friends
They'll make your mind up for you
The popularity's gone to your head
But still I don't ignore you
You ran for school election
You even got my vote
And did you know?
My favourite pastime's poetry
And yesterday I wrote

[Chorus:]

Just because I'm nerdy
And my friends are thirty
It doesn't mean that I swing that way
You've got complications
And a reputation
Wouldn't wanna get in your way
Oh anyway

This morning you walked past my door
Just like a daydream
But much more
I followed you round to the store
And I was shell-shocked
When I saw
You and your friends were smoking
It always makes me choke
And did you know?
I'd do anything to have you
But I wouldn't take your toke
Hey

[Chorus:]

Just because I'm nerdy
And my friends are thirty
It doesn't mean that I swing that way
You've got complications
And a reputation
Wouldn't wanna get in your way
Oh anyway

Anyway, anyway yeah

You said my words were beautiful
They almost made you cry
The markings on the wall were jaded
I wonder why?

Just because you're nerdy
And your friends are thirty
Doesn't mean she won't swing your way
She's got complications
And a reputation
Go ahead and stand in her way

Just because you're nerdy
And your friends are thirty
Doesn't mean she won't swing your way
She's got complications
And a reputation
Go ahead and stand in her way
But anyway
Anyway
Anyway

    I think this song means that if you like someone but their more popular and do things you would never do, you should still try because you never know they might like you back. But, if they don't, it may seem like the end of the world but it's not. There are plenty other people out there for you.
