The Socialites Lyrics

by The Dirty Projectors

I think, shes the prettiest lady Ive ever seen
Her hair, it has meaning and volume and such a sheen
Sometimes, I think maybe I could go and talk to her
Her eyes, they look lonely far away yeah and inner
Oh baby, the socialites who act so nice
Won't ever begin to let you in
Theyll act surprised, apologize
Won't ever let on the face you wear is wrong
Im gonna try combing my hair in a thousand ways
Maybe he will notice and maybe look my way
Oh baby, the other guys who act so nice
Won't ever begin to let you in
Stars in their eyes, theyll apologize
Won't ever let on that you meet someone real
But they dont know where Im going
Its not impossible, oooh
To show her, to show it, to open up
The socialites who act so nice
Won't ever begin to let you in
Theyll act surprised, theyll apologize
Wont ever let on, the face you wear is all wrong
Im glad theyre the ones on the other side of the glass
Who knows what my spirit is worth in cold hard cash
Oh baby
