Why did I listen to that music? It’s made me feel so sad
And brought it home to me once more, I want what I cannot have
When you can’t get what you want, you still have all the rest
But isn’t it sad to settle for second best?

I’ve been waiting at home for someone to phone
I didn’t get where I am today without living that old cliche
I’ve been lying in bed the sheets over my head
I didn’t get where I am today without giving up in dismay

Told everyone I’m over it, I’ve quit this cul-de-sac
But just when I thought I’d lost it for good that feeling comes right back
When you can’t get what you want, you wear your bravest face
But deep inside you’re sinking without a trace

I’ve been called repressed a poet, a pest
I didn’t get where I am today without getting in someone’s way
I live my life on a stage put it down on the page
I didn’t get where I am today without writing a resume
I didn’t get where I am today

I didn’t get where I am today
I didn’t get where I am today

I’ve explored situations the themes and variations
I didn’t get where I am today without losing it on the way
On the Street of Shame looking for someone to blame
I didn’t get where I am today without leaving in disarray
I didn’t get where I am today
