You made me feel like I'm ok, I could be happy
Turn off feeling pretty, dressing up dressing down.
Now I can sit, not run away stupidly laughing
Wipe out all self-pity, it's slowing me down
I walk around the city out of my way, looking for something
I've got all that I need to save my day, so why'm I running?
You said I should get professional help, it always makes me cry.
I know I'm just an amateur, but I've gotta try.
We hung a disco ball up and watched the lights, they were so lovely
When exactly are we? I get the decades mixed up.
I had a birthday party and it was packed, got friends who love me
I like the streets when they're empty, I can make the rest up.
Every day is new year's eve, every night is the last night.
Every day is new year's eve, every time is the last time
