  • I used to like people
    But now I’m not sure
    The older I get
    The smaller my circle shrinks
    Seems like the cure

    I’m thinking that small talk
    Is gonna kill me in the end
    The obit will read
    It was swift decline
    After the 1 millionth attempt

    You can find me
    Talking to the dog at the party
    I’ll be on the couch in the corner
    Island vacation
    Anything to save me from a bad conversation
    See I can make it look like I’m busy
    He’s saying the right things
    Polite and he’s funny
    I never leave sorry
    When I’m talking to the dog at the party

    Don’t want to chat about the weather
    Or your super fancy job
    You better sweep the floor, once more
    After all the names you dropped

    You were mean to the waiter
    The eleventh cardinal sin
    I’ll step outside to fake a phone fall
    I’m never coming back again

    You can find me
    Talking to the dog at the party
    I’ll be on the couch in the corner
    Island vacation
    Anything to save me from a bad conversation
    See I can make it look like I’m busy
    He’s saying the right things
    Polite and he’s funny
    I never leave sorry
    When I’m talking to the dog at the party

    If that makes me a loner
    I will gladly wear that crown
    I’d rather be a loner
    Than feel lonely
    With all these people around
    How miserable does that sound

    You can find me
    Talking to the dog at the party
    I’ll be on the couch in the corner
    Island vacation
    Anything to save me from a bad conversation
    See I can make it look like I’m busy
    He’s saying the right things
    Polite and he’s funny
    I never leave sorry
    When I’m talking to the dog at the party Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
