No one looked as I walked by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
Said, "No" to him again and again
First he took my heart then he ran

No, no one knows how I feel
Or what I mean unless you read between my lines
One man walked away from me
You know first he took my hand, he said, "Take me"

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
Well, it’s alright, it’s alright
To be standin' in a line
Standin' in a line
To be standin' in a line
I would

Do not turn away my friend, well, like a willow, well, I can bend
No man, say call my name, no man came

Well, so I walked on down the line away from you
Well, maybe my attention was more than I could do
Well, one man said he would not fall
But he asked me for too much, he said, "Well, take it all"

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room

Well, it’s alright, it’s alright
To be standin' in a line
Standin' in a line
To be standin' in a line
I will

Well, so I walked on down the line away from you

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
Well, it’s alright, it’s alright
To be standin' in a line
Standin' in a line
To be standing in a line
I will

Well, I feel I need a little sympathy
Well, I feel I need a little sympathy
Well, I feel I need a little sympathy, baby

Well, you could be standin' in a line
Stand back
Well, you could be standin' in a line
Stand back
Well, you could be standin' in a line
Stand back

Why don't you take me home?
He says, "Why don't you just take me home?"
Stand back
Why don't you take me home?

Well, you could be standin' in a line
Stand back
Well, you could be standin' in a line
Stand back

Well, you could be standin' in a line
Stand back
Well, you could be standin' in a line
Stand back
Standin' in a
