Lyrics:

Picking up where someone else left off
Picking up the pieces again
Picking up where someone else left off
I am picking up the pieces again

Pretending to be normal
Not succeeding
Pretending to be normal
Moments are fleeting
Pretending to be normal
It bears repeating
Pretending to be normal
Na na na na na na na na yeah

Somebody's talking to the shoeshine guy
He's in the guest room and he's not paying rent
He's never never gonna amount to anything
(I'm just) poundin' on the door, man, I'm just sayin' hey!

You need to calm down and set back down
You don't care, I know you don't care
What-ever we can do to get in jail that night
Deb's already home getting our cocktails prepared

Picking up where someone else left off
I am picking up the pieces again...

Pretending to be normal
Not succeeding
Pretending to be normal
Moments are fleeting
Pretending to be normal
It bears repeating
Pretending to be normal
Na na na na na na na na yeah

And you just stand there looking,
You just stand there lookingible
