"Everybody But Me" as written by Lykke Li Timotej Zachrisson and Bj�rn Daniel Arne Yttling....
Ooh, I'm standing in the corner
Thinking all I want to
What am I to do?
Should I go home still sober
Should I buy me another glass of wine
And forget about time

Though my jeans are too tight
Don't feel like dancing
And all this light is too bright
Don't feel like shining
Though this room is too small
I'd rather stand against the wall
And hope that no one sees me

And everybody's dancing
I don't want to
And everybody's toying
I don't want to
And everybody's laughing
I don't want to
Everybody but me

And everybody's drinking
I don't want to
And everybody's using
I don't need more
And everybody's floating
I don't want to
Everybody but me, yeah

I get the creeps from all the people in here
I cannot breathe, it's too crowded in here
Don't look at me
I don't wanna be seen touched heard bothered
By the fellas who got a look in their eye
They wanna take me home without knowing my name
They wanna put me on
But do they not know is that I'm not like the others

And everybody's dancing
I don't want to
And everybody's toying
I don't want to
And everybody's laughing
I don't want to
Everybody but me

And everybody's drinking
I don't want to
And everybody's using
I don't need more
And everybody's floating
I don't want to
Everybody but me

And everybody's dancing
I don't want to
And everybody's toying
I don't want to
And everybody's laughing
I don't want to
Everybody but me

And everybody's drinking
I don't want to
And everybody's using
I don't need more
And everybody's floating
I don't want to
Everybody but me

    General Commenti believe the lyrics are...when everybody's dancing I don't want to. when everybody's joking I dont want to. Its not and everybody and etc. Also its not And everybody's drinking I don't want to And everybody's using I don't need more and everybody's floating...its when everybodys drinking i dont want to. When everybodys SMOKING, i dont need more. when everybody's FOOLING i dont want to.

    I love this song. I can definitely relate to it. To me it feels like she's really depressed about something and she also feels antisocial.

    General CommentHa. The lyrics to this are most of my life in pure definition. Anti-social. Love the beat to this song. Lykke Li's expieramental soud should be more of an inspiration to current artists. Things are begining to sound a bit repeatative.

    General CommentA feeling of being closed in. I feel that due to these lyrics she doesn't want to be glued to these stereotypical crimes. She'd rather not be part of the creepy minds and within her own so she is sad to be antisocial but she feels she doesn't fit in with these people.
