I got my hair done
Put on my red skirt
I’ve got somewhere to be

I’m running hot and cold
There’ll be people there that I know
If I wanna go then I gotta go now

I’m getting nothing when I’m turning the key
I, I can’t get started
There’s a party going on without me
And I’m dressed up and I look good but
I don’t wanna go

The sun’s gone down
I shoulda moved by now
I should be tearing it up all over town

But I’m so numb
And I’m in my own way
Oh tell me that you know how it feels?

I’m just a blank page
I draw a blank face
I got a blank heart

It’s not my day
But I’ve got nothing to prove
I’ll just try again tomorrow
