There are things in my wallet I will never use
I'm the 51st member of a god awful group
Connected by rain, they say we're all the same
But I don't know, I don't know if they're telling the truth
Like a field of rice, I've grown out of view
An Olympian came to fill the shoes you knew
Oh he could reach the sockets that I could never twist
So now you can cross me off that god damn list

'Cause there's always that someone who'll be easier on your eyes
So forget the politics of living alone and just dance 'til the morning light

I saw you in the background the other day
On a television to some story grey
You were sad on the steps of the new courthouse
Spinning that wheel, you said you'd show me how
You chased me through the carriage on the train
But I reached the next one before you came
I pulled out the pin between yours and mine
I kept going, you got left behind

'Cause there's always that someone who'll be easier on your eyes
So forget the politics of living alone and just dance 'til the morning light

I heard you were looking for a man to lead
I can tell you that I'm not the one you need
I'm always three steps behind the dance and the times
So if I can't change for you, then I won't change for me
Oh as stubborn as it is, as stubborn as I am
I can tell you that there is no pearl in this clam
A diamond maybe, I stole it, see
But it was only to try and get you home with me

When there's always that someone who'll be easier on your eyes
So forget the politics of living alone and just dance 'till the morning light
