Lyrics[]

Walking into a night bar
Got the lady in the grass skirt serving
Got the old man in the pink suit perving
Got my heart in my mouth

I see velvet
I see something deepest blue inside me
See a whole new meaning to lonely
Want to ask all of you to hold me

Cause you all know just what it's like
Just what it's like
Just what it's like

You all know just what it's like
Just what it's like
Just what it's like

Sit myself alone
I'm the blonde girl in the red shoes smiling
Leaving lipstick on a new valentine
Bringing solitude in this heart of mine

We're all strangers
Gathering to make the night time slowly
Each of us a different love story
Now I see a whole meaning to lonely

Cause you all know just what it's like
Just what it's like
Just what it's like

You all know just what it's like
Just what it's like

Cause you all know just what it's like
Just what it's like
Just what it's like

You all know just what it's like
Just what it's like

Stranger, save your last dance for me
Cause I just can't stare at the sun anymore
Stranger, save your last dance for me
Magic this cloak, this cage of a body

Into a bird [x8]

Into the blue
Into velvet

So I can rest here and not be afraid
So I can stay here and not feel afraid
Do you know what it's like?
Do you know what it's like?
