lyrics

I show up to the party alone
Just like you asked me to
You're speaking in a circle, fighting for the best line
I recognize you by your tattoos

Stand in the kitchen like I'm killing time
I'm only waiting for a friend
The only one I have tonight is alcoholic appetite
I'd put down the bottle, if you would only let me in

And I'm sorry you can't see
Everything that's wrong with me
Lonely in a crowded room
And I'm sorry you can't see
Everything that's wrong with me
Lonely in a crowded room
Lonely in a crowded room

Now I'm cowering in plain view
Just like I always do
Making conversation but I speak a different language
I wear a smile like a costume

Walk away before they see the lie
And how I'm wearing out its use
I lean against the wall and think to myself
Life would be much better if I only had the wit like you

And I'm sorry you can't see
Everything that's wrong with me
Lonely in a crowded room
And I'm sorry you can't see
Everything that's wrong with me
Lonely in a crowded room
Lonely in a crowded room

In the shade I am waiting for the day
Where I burst on the scene and my worries fade away
I will kill the mistrust that I can't shake off the pain
From the stress and the doubt
Pins and needles in my veins

I will fight to breathe
Let it breathe, let it breathe, let it breathe
I will fight to breathe
Let it breathe, let it breathe, let it breathe

What am I supposed to do?

I'm a silent awkward mess
I'm an enemy just like the rest
If I could only find the words to use

I'm sorry you can't see
Everything that's wrong with me
Lonely in a crowded room
And I'm sorry you can't see
Everything that's wrong with me
Lonely in a crowded room
Lonely in a crowded room
