lyrics

I think I've lost my appetite
That or I've just had enough
Of all the clapping and cheering, and drinking and dancing
To songs that I don't really like
I can see you're trying your best to cheer me
And it doesn't go unnoticed, still
You say it's never too late to try
Oh but it feels too late to change

It's not how I imagined it
Penning an angry outburst, my first pay check in the post
All those years ago
If my younger self could see me now she'd scream with disappointment
But she isn't here
It's just you and me
And this god awful crowd

Oh, it's so easy to get swept up without questions
And oh, when we got to where we wanted to be we forgot what we came for
What did you come in for?

I think I've lost my appetite
That or I've just had too much
Of all the congratulations for doing the same thing
As everybody else in the room
I know you want to make me feel special
But I don't think that it's deserved
We let life get in the way, what an ugly phrase
I'll never say it again
