No one looks as I walk by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
Said no to her again, again and again
First she took my heart then she ran

No one knows just how I feel
What I say unless you read between the lines
One girl walked away from me
First she took my hand and then she take me home

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's all right, it's all right
You'll be standing in a line
You'll be standing in a line, I will cry

Do not turn away my friend
Like a river, I can bend
No one calls out my name
And no one came

So I walked on down the line and waited for you
Maybe your protected from all that you do
One girl, did not call
She asked me for my love and that was all

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's alright, it's alright
You'll be standing in a line
You'll be standing in a line, I will cry

Stand back
Stand back

So I walked on down the line and waited for you
Maybe your attention was more than I could do
One girl, did not fall
She asked me for my love and that was all

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's alright, it's alright
You'll be standing in a line
You'll be standing in a line, I will cry

I gotta need a little sympathy
I gotta need a little sympathy
Can I find a little sympathy?

I gotta need a little sympathy
Check and ask me anything
Babe, you too ask me anything

Stand back
Stand back
Stand back
