You're just trying to read
But I'm always standing in your light
You're just trying to sleep
But I always wake you up to apologize

I'm sorry I don't laugh at the right times

I know how it seems
When I always sing to myself in public
I babble on like a mad man
I know how it seems
When I'm always staring off into nothing
I'm lost in my head again

I'm sorry I don't laugh at the right times
Is this what it feels like?

I've got my heart
Strung up on clothing line
Through tenement windows in mid-July
I've got my heart
Strung up on clothing line
Through tenement windows in mid-July.

I'm sorry I don't laugh at the right times.
Is this what it feels like
With my wings clipped?
I'm awkward and nervous
I'm awkward and nervous

    General CommentThis is practically an anthem for socially awkward people.
    Feeling like you constantly getting on people's nerves. 'I'm always standing in your light' and just in general being awkward and nervous.
    Such a great song.

    My InterpretationOverall I agree with jabx that it is an anthem for socially awkward people haha :D
    I think it's even more than just being socialy awkward though...it shows the feelings of worthlessness and and never feeling like you're good enough and that you're always a draw back to people.
    And oh my gosh, I always laugh at the wrong times.
    That one line..
    "Is this what it feels like
    With my wings clipped? "
    I think that's saying he takes his freedom away from himself by thinking that everything he does annoys people and he needs to stop being himself because he dosent feel accepted. That's the one line i'm not 100% sure on.
