Why aren't I one of these interesting people who's always got something to say,
To not be contrived and feel so alive and to never have wasted a day,
To go for long walks, have well informed talks in a nonconfrontational way,
Why aren't I one of these interesting people
And why wont you stay?

[Chorus]
I'm still having the same conversation, I've been having for years,
I just want to read and retain information,
Just face up to my fears,
I look at myself and it's so plain to see
All I need is to change
Not to much, I still want to be me
Everyone looks the same.

Why is my phone full of so many numbers
And why doesn't anyone call
Maybe they think I'm always to busy
Or maybe I've no friends at allWhen I'm watching TV they're all out necking E's
And well obviously I'm appalled,
Why is my phone full of so many numbers
And why won't you call?

[Chorus]
I'm still having the same conversation, I've been having for years,
I just want to read and retain information,
Just face up to my fears,
I look at myself and it's so plain to see
All I need is to change
Not to much, I still want to be me
Everyone looks the same.

-Instrumental-

[Chorus]
I'm still having the same conversation, I've been having for years,
I just want to read and retain information,
Just face up to my fears,
I look at myself and it's so plain to see
All I need is to change
Not to much, I still want to be me
Everyone looks the same.
