LyricsEdit

Sky Ferreira's versionEdit

[Verse 1]:
No one looked as I walked by,
Just an invitation would have been just fine.
Said no to him again and again,
First he took my heart then he ran.

No one knows how I feel,
What I say unless you read between my lines.
One man walked away from me,
First he took my hand.
Take me home.

[Chorus]:
Stand back, stand back,
In the middle of my room.
I did not hear from you.
It's all right, it's all right,
To be standing in a line,
To be standing in a line.
I would cry.

La, la, la-la, la, la-la, la-la.
La-la.
La, la, la-la, la, la-la, la-la.
La-la, la, la.

[Verse 2]:
Do not turn away my friend,
Like a willow I can bend.
No man calls my name,
No man came.

[Hook]:
So I walked on down away from you.
Maybe your attention was more,
Than you could do.
But one man did not call,
He asked me for my love,
And that was all.

[Chorus]:
Stand back, stand back,
In the middle of my room.
I did not hear from you.
It's all right, it's all right,
To be standing in a line,
To be standing in a line.
I would cry.

La, la, la-la, la, la-la, la-la.
La-la.
La, la, la-la, la, la-la, la-la.
La-la, la, la.
La, la, la-la, la, la-la, la-la.
La-la.
La, la, la-la, la, la-la, la-la.
La-la, la, la.

[Hook]:
So I walked, walked down the line,
Away from you.
Maybe your attention was more,
Than I could do.
One man did not fall,
He asked me for my love,
That was all.

[Chorus]:
Stand back, stand back,
In the middle of my room.
I did not hear from you.
It's all right, it's all right,
To be standing in a line,
To be standing in a line.
I could cry.

[Outro]:
Stand back!
Stand back!
Stand back!
Stand back!
