Deaf Havana – Everybody's Dancing And I Want To Die lyrics

I had a plan at ten years old
To try my best, do as I'm told
But that don't catch the pretty people's eye

I didn't have the coolest hair
The newest clothes, or the richest parents
So I sat alone as the pretty girls walked by

I tried my best at making jokes
Only to trip over my words and choke
So I ran back home and stayed inside my room
I swore I'd never go back alive
Shallow talk with shallow minds
But that was just a jealous boy's excuse

Cause everybody's dancing and I don't feel the same
This room is full of people who barely know my name
And I don't feel like dancing on my own again
Another year without a friend
Another year where I just close my eyes and dance inside my head

With age comes insecurity
Embarrassment and tragedy
Increasing fear of growing old lonely
I said I put on my dancing shoes
But I've got two left feet and no good moves
The pretty girls found cooler kids than me
So I sat and waited patiently
Until the day I'd finally be asked
But it never came

Cause everybody's dancing and I don't feel the same
This room is full of people who barely know my name
And I don't feel like dancing on my own again
Another year without a friend
Another year where I just close my eyes and dance inside my head

And I found it hard to take
Some time out of the days that I spent wishing I could be
Anyone but me

Cause everybody's dancing and I don't feel the same
This room is full of people who barely know my name
Cause everybody's dancing and I don't feel the same
This room is full of people who barely know my name
And I don't feel like dancing on my own again
Another year without a friend
Another year where I just close my eyes and dance inside my head
Another year where I just close my eyes and dance inside my head
