Lonely Girls - Suede

Stephanie stares at the posters on the wall
Tina sits and waits for a telephone call
Maxine mixes alcohol with polythene and paint
Sylvia stays in bed on her own
She can hear the cars outside and wonders where they go
And if you call her answer phone
She'll get back to you one day

And lonely girls, lonely girls fill the world

Oh, Julia dreams while she's typing away
Jackie kills time while the company pays
Tracy still hears 808 ringing in her brain
Jane slaps paints on the walls of her home
Lydia sings when she thinks she's alone
Jean gets drunk and wonders home, through the carparks that eat her change

Yeah lonely girls, lonely girls fill the world

And they smile through the summer
And laugh in the rain
And sing through the winter
But never show the pain

Oh sometimes our lives are not what they seem
Sometimes things aren't like they are in lifestyle magazines
We see what we want to see
In this miracle of clay

Where lonely girls, lonely girls fill the world

* 808 refers to old rave band 808 State
