lyrics

Hanging on the margins of the group
Grimace dominates your lovely face
Body language screams
Anywhere but here
Send me subtle signs that we're the same
Happier in smaller groups of friends
Drowning in the crowd
Awkward and alone

I'm not happy
You're not happy
Let's elope
Start an unhappy family
I'm not happy
You're not happy
Pool our meds
Start our own little pharmacy

We can be as wretched as we please
We can plumb the depths of our despair
No one there to tell us how to feel
No one there to tell us when to smile
We can find a sorry little house
You and I can paint it black or blue
Shutter all the windows, hide inside
Barricade the doors--we'll be ecstatic

Circling the room for half an hour
Feigning studied interest in the art
Departure on my mind
Recharge way past due
I can see you edging towards the door
Send me up a flare if we’re the same
Lonely in the crowd
Happier at home

I'm not happy
You're not happy
Let's elope
Start an unhappy family
I'm not happy
You're not happy
Pool our meds
Start our own little pharmacy

We can be as wretched as we please
We can plumb the depths of our despair
No one there to tell us how to feel
No one there to tell us when to smile
We can find a sorry little house
You and I can paint it black or blue
Shutter all the windows, hide inside
Barricade the doors--we'll be ecstatic

I'm not happy
You're not happy
Let's elope
Start an unhappy family
I'm not happy
You're not happy
Pool our meds
Start our own little pharmacy
I'm not happy (Surrounding me)
You're not happy (Surrounding you)
Let's elope
Start an unhappy family
I'm not happy (Surrounding me)
You're not happy (Surrounding you)
Pool our meds
Start our own little pharmacy

We can be as wretched as we please
We can plumb the depths of our despair
No one there to tell us how to feel
No one there to tell us when to smile
We can find a sorry little house
You and I can paint it black or blue
Shutter all the windows, hide inside
Barricade the doors--we'll be ecstatic
