Californian boys and New York city girls are overtaking me
They’re so damn clever you see
And I’ve been sitting on my own for far too long
There must be something wrong. Something’s going on

Everyone walks a little fast today, everyone’s just a little further away,
And everyone’s got it going on in a big way

Could you be loved when you’re lost without a trace?
Could you be loved even though you’ve got such an ugly face?
Could you be somebody’s only saving grace?
Could you be loved?

A thousand taxis full of faces pass me by, they’re ignoring me
They’re far too busy you see
As all the businessmen cling to their girlfriends’ hands
So they can take them home, to get them on their own

If they smile then their makeup starts to fade
If they kiss then their lipstick smears away
If they fuck, then they needn’t have bothered in the first place

And I watch them all go past
And I still can’t move a limb
And I watch them all go past
