You made me feel like I'm okay, I could be happy
Now I can sit, not run away stupidly laughing

Wipe out all self pity, it's slowin' me down
Turn off feelin' pretty, dressing up dressing down

I walk around the city out of my way, lookin' for somethin'
I've got all that I need to save my day, so why am I running?

You said I should get professional help, it always makes me cry
I know I'm just an amateur, but I've gotta try

I had a birthday party and it was packed, got friends who love me
We hung a disco ball up and watched the lights, they were so lovely

You said I should get professional help, it always makes me cry
I know I'm just an amateur, but I've gotta try, I've gotta try

When exactly are we? I get the decades mixed up
I like the streets when they're empty, I can make the rest up
I can make the rest up, I can make the rest up

I walk around the city out of my way, looking for somethin'
I've got all that I need to save my day, so why am I running?

You said I should get professional help, it always makes me cry
I know I'm just an amateur, but I've gotta try

Every day is New Year's eve, every night is the last night
Every day is New Year's eve, every time is the last time

You said I should get professional help, it always makes me cry
I know I'm just an amateur, but I've gotta try, I've gotta try

Songwriters
NILSSON, JOHAN/ERIKSSON, MATS STIG JOHNNY
