Ooh, I'm standing in the corner
Thinking all I want to, what am I to do?
Should I go home still sober
Should I buy me another glass of wine
And forget about time

Though my jeans are too tight
Don't feel like dancing
And all this light is too bright
Don't feel like shining

Though this room is too small
I'd rather stand against the wall
And hope that no one sees me

And everybody's dancing
(I don't want to)
And everybody's toying
(I don't want to)
And everybody's laughing
(I don't want to)
Everybody but me

And everybody's drinking
(I don't want to)
And everybody's using
(I don't need more)
And everybody's floating
(I don't want to)
Everybody but me, yeah

I get the creeps from all the people in here
I cannot breathe, it's too crowded in here
Don't look at me, I don't wanna be seen
Touched, heard, bothered by the fellas
Who got a look in their eye

They wanna take me home
Without knowing my name
They wanna put me on
But do they not know is
That I'm not like the others

And everybody's dancing
(I don't want to)
And everybody's toying
(I don't want to)
And everybody's laughing
(I don't want to)
Everybody but me

And everybody's drinking
(I don't want to)
And everybody's using
(I don't want to)
And everybody's floating
(I don't want to)
Everybody but me

And everybody's dancing
(I don't want to)
And everybody's toying
(I don't want to)
And everybody's laughing
(I don't want to)
Everybody but me

And everybody's drinking
(I don't want to)
And everybody's using
(I don't want to)
And everybody's floating
(I don't want to)
Everybody but me

And everybody's dancing
(I don't want to)
And everybody's toying
(I don't want to)
And everybody's laughing
(I don't want more)
Everybody but me

And everybody's drinking
(I don't want to)
And everybody's using
(I don't want to)
And everybody's floating
(I don't want to)
Everybody but me, yeah
