lyrics

Wallflower looking sadder as the night rolls on,
Fake a smile because you know there’s people
Haven’t slept in a while and these nights are long,
Can’t get her off his mind
This scene sucks, this place is overflowing,
Full of reasons we just shouldn’t breed,
He can’t take the eyes of people watching,
He’s finished drinking so he turns to leave

And then he saw her out the corner of his eye,
That strange half-smile she gave him made those wasted months feel right,
He couldn’t stop himself,
He went tripping over words getting lost in her eyes,
She saw the way he felt, wiped his heart on her sleeve,
Said “I’m sorry kid, not tonight”,

Don’t take it personally, I just know what I want, boy,
And train wrecks are not my scene,
I’ve got this front-row seat and I’ll sit here and watch you burn,
Don’t take it personally, I’m not trying to hurt you,
I know this is kind of mean,
It’s three cheers for apathy as I sit here and watch you burn,

World shaken, feeling broken as the days roll on,
Done faking it for all the people watching,
Set out to stop the train, he’s out to prove her wrong,
Can’t get her off his mind,
New look, new place, new job, he’s found a way out,
Now out with his friends, hard time’s come to an end,
That girl that changed his life

And then he saw her out the corner of his eye,
That look of shock he gave him made those wasted months feel right,
She couldn’t hide the way she went tripping over words,
Bags up under her eyes,
He saw the way she felt, wiped her heart on his sleeve,
Said “I’m sorry kid, not tonight”,

Don’t take it personally, I just know what I want, girl,
And train wrecks are not my scene,
I’ve got this front-row seat and I’ll sit here and watch you burn,
Don’t take it personally, I’m not trying to hurt you,
I know this is kind of mean,
It’s three cheers for apathy as I sit here and watch you burn

She’s left broken, feeling shattered as the world falls down,
Messed up, now she’s stuck here simply watching,
The boy she never chanced on is the talk of the town,
Can’t get him off her mind,
He swore he wouldn’t call her,
(She’s had enough and she’s done breaking down)
Regrets those things he called her,
(She’s sick of loneliness, she’s done being proud)
He leaves to go and see her
(She ditches work, grabs a cab to his place)
He knows how much he needs her
(And then she’s greeted by a familiar face)

Don’t take it personally,
I was too disconnected to see what you man to me,
We’ll stand for honesty,
Screaming “We’re here to have our turn”,
Don’t take it personally,
Let’s get out of this hellhole,
The slow life is not my scene,
Three cheers for apathy,
As I sit here and watch this whole damn city burn
