Nobody Wants Me


Summer lovers holding hands
Happy trails of smiles along the stands
Skipping to the beat of their own music
But nobody wants me

Into shadow I fade, an empty cage
A silent ensemble waiting to play
Holding aloft my sense of well-being
But nobody wants me

It’s true
They prepare you for that job interview
They give you the tools
To pass the test
But my heart freezes in my chest
It is easy to repeat what was said
And rewrite what was written
Without thinking
Someone else’s words always sounded better
Someone else’s thoughts are much clearer
Than the traffic jam in your head

So from the lonely distances afar,
In the feeble light of dying stars
When all is said and done
Nobody wants me
