Drag

You're always ahead of the game
I drag behind
You never get caught in the rain
When I'm drenched to the bone every time
You're the first one to swim across the Seine
I lag behind
You're always ahead of the game
While I drag behind

I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind

You're always ahead of the pack
I drag behind
You possess every trait that I lack
By coincidence or by design
You're the monkey I've got on my back
That tells me to shine
You're always ahead of the pack
While I drag behind.

I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind

You're always ahead of the rest
When I'm always on time
You got A's on your algebra tests
I failed and they kept me behind
I just got to get off my chest
That I think you're divine
You're always ahead of the rest
While I drag behind.

I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind

    My InterpretationThis song is an admiration song that could be addressed to a friend, but what makes me think is the title of the song. It's not called 'Drag Behind' but simply 'Drag'.

    So it could be that the protagonist has invented an alter ego for himself. He's a drag queen, and since he felt inferior his entire life because he was never the best at anything, he gave the one woman he portrays when he dresses in drag, all the personality traits, and abilities he wishes he had himself. 'Drag behind' means that he is the one behind all the makeup. Behind the drag persona, he is still himself.

    'You're the monkey I've got on my back That tells me to shine' could refer to the inner voice that tells him that he can still shine by being a drag queen. Maybe that' the one thing he exceeds in.
