  • Are you one of the beautiful people?
    Is my name on the list?
    Want to be of the beautiful people
    Want to feel like I'm missed.

    Hey you with the walkie-talkie
    I know my clothes are not right.
    I wish I had my own walkie-talkie
    That reached to God every night.

    Everyone needs to be somebody
    Everyone needs to find someone who cares,
    But I don't know if you know what I mean coz
    I'm never on your list.

    Are you one of the beautiful people?
    Am I on the wrong track?
    Sometimes it feels like I'm made of eggshells
    And it feels like I'm gonna crack.

    Everyone needs to be somebody
    Everyone needs to find someone who cares,
    But I don't know if you know what I mean coz
    I'm never on your list.

    I'm never on your list.
    I'm never on your list. Writer/s: MARK O. EVERETT

  • Karl from Ingatestone, United Kingdomi hope this song brings a remarkable tear to the throat, and i hope it still does. thanks in part to the Eels selling really big with Beautiful Freak, i dont want my copy of that album to sell really low as this year's End Times.
    i also hope the Eels dont bring me down with that nonsense
