sorry, just didn't think i would stay late
it's okay, cause we're all too scared to say anything anyway
i'm trying to give less of a shit
cause everyone's got a handle on their emotional fits
it's the middle of the night and i'm running around
classic people-pleaser wearing the crown
center of attention, middle of the crowd
don't know how i got here, or how to get out
just wanna stand outside, hiding out in plain sight

maybe i just drank too much, or maybe i need to catch the very last bus
we're all going crazy but the story's just started and now there's no getting out

phone's lost and i've got a dead-body smile, yeah, i don't know where i am
think i can get away with it for awhile before the night has run out
you've gone and met someone else tonight anyway, there goes my whole point
of shitty beers and too many people around me, talking about their highlight reels

he wants her back, it's an over-told tale
she's on the fence, she doesn't know how she feels
he's on his knees and he's making a fuss
while i'm really just trying to catch the last bus
ben's leaving the party but he'll get a dui
riley's getting a cab, but she'll probably cry
we're all being nudged at the edge of a cliff
throwing bottles at the wall until something sticks

phone's lost and i've got a dead-body smile, yeah

nobody here knows what they're looking for
you get the feeling you should maybe just go
it's like we're nineteen, party queens in a fistfight, never gonna die but we're never gonna feel right
maybe i just didn't get enough
familiarity's a hell of a drug

phone's lost and i've got a dead-body smile, yeah, i don't know where i am
think i can get away with it for awhile, before the rumour gets out
you've gone and met someone else tonight anyway, there goes my whole point
of shitty beers and too many people around me, talking about their highlight reels
