  • Nobody dares to speak against your word
    So they just sit quiet
    Do what you want, who cares if you get hurt?

    No, I don't know why you wonder why
    Wonder why, wonder why
    You're surrounded by the type of people
    That never say what you don't wanna hear
    So they just stay quiet

    Oh, everybody loves a show
    Lights on, they all go home
    You won't let anybody close
    That high five is all you got
    Ooh, they keep saying you're the best
    You ask and they say, "Yeah"
    Ooh, when you add up all that's left
    That high five is all you got

    You say it's hard, feel sorry for yourself
    And I don't know why you
    You take it out on everybody else

    No, I don't know why you wonder why
    Wonder why, wonder why
    You're alone at night, when they're all up on ya
    You know I tried, but you won't call me back
    So I just stay quiet

    Ooh, everybody loves a show
    Lights on, they all go home
    You won't let anybody close
    That high five is all you got
    Ooh, they keep saying you're the best
    You ask and they say, "Yeah"
    Ooh, when you add up all that's left
    That high five is all you got

    Oh, oh, oh, right
    Don't you get tired of looking for high fives?
    Oh, oh, oh, right
    Don't you get tired of looking for high fives?
    Oh, oh, oh, right
    Don't you get tired of, don't you get tired of

    And you wonder why, wonder why
    No one's by your side, by your side
    When the room goes quiet

    Ooh, everybody loves a show
    Lights on, they all go home
    You won't let anybody close
    That high five is all you got
    Ooh, they keep saying you're the best
    You ask and they say, "Yeah"
    Ooh, when you add up all that's left
    That high five is all you got Writer/s: Emily Warren, Martin Sjolie, Sigrid Solbakk Raabe
