Falling in love is sometimes hard
Writing a love song is even harder
Better to leave that to someone else
Someone madder

But this is a song about feeling left out
And this is a song about not being ready
To do what you’ve been told to do

This is the last drink I’m ever gonna have
This is the way that its making me feel
I used to come here to have a good time
But I could feel like this at home

And the couples walk by and they give me the eye
And I can see that the girls just a little bit jealous
Well anytime you want to swap just stop me

Yes people have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
You’re not lonely
I am baby

So the couples walk by and they give me the eye
And it seems like the boys got a thing for me
Well my advice is not to get involved

And closing time’s now non-existant
I could stay till judgement day
I could stay till I get bored of the couples walking by

Yes people have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
You’re not lonely
I am baby

Oooh ooohhh
You’re not lonely
I am baby

A million people in the cosmos tonight
Must be rare in this age of life
But none of them can hold a candle to me

And the couples walk by and they give me the eye
But that’s not what I what I walk
Around the block and never come back one day
I walk around the block and never come back one day

Yes people have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
People have the nerve to tell me that they’re lonely
You’re not lonely
I am baby

Oooh ooohhh
You’re not lonely
I am baby

    General Comment"Must be rare in this age of life" is actually "Must be aware of this age-old plight"

    In my humble opinion, this song is about wanting to be in love and wanting to find that someone to share your life with, but being unwilling to settle for just anyone. And maybe about feeling pressured to find someone and settle down simply because its what you're expected to do at a certain age and its what everyone around you is doing. Hence "But this is a song about feeling left out / And this is a song about not being ready / To do what you've been told to do"
