Am I just a number on a page
An alphabetical appearing name
Someone just to tell you it's okay
How kind for you to ask that I don't change

All my life the world has passed me by
Wallflowers always stand aside
But not this time, not this time
No, I'm not alright

Everybody dies, but do they live
A sympathetic candle in the wind
When all is said and done, what did I give
If when the trial came, I ran and hid

All my life the world has passed me by
Wallflowers always stand aside
But not this time, not this time, not this time
No, I'm not alright

No second chance and no rehearsals
There's only one take
So make your move, the window's closing
No time to play it safe

La da da da da da, la da da da da da
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da, la da da da da da
La da da da da da da

There is nothing else left to be done
'Cause when the trial is you, you cannot run
Too ashamed to stay where I've come from
I will not remain as I've become

All my life the world has passed me by
Wallflowers always stand aside
But not this time, not this time, not this time
No, I'm not alright
I'm not alright
