lyrics

When I heard about the things you said
I knew you meant them all for me
It was too hard for you to be my friend
And now it’s over all the world can see

There was a time we worked without a net
Back in my grin and bear it phase
Your rejection would have filled me with regret
And I woulda hung my head for days and days

But now I’m movin’ on
Like a trumpeter swan
Oh c’est la vie
I’m the rejectee

Then you grew your hair and attitude
Out in that California sun
I guess I didn’t show the gratitude
That you took for granted you had won

Oh and I wouldn’t lie
And you wouldn’t try
I couldn’t be
What you couldn’t see
I’m the fall guy
I’m the rejectee

I wrote your theme song and your epitaph
That joke’s for you to get
Lord knows it hasn’t happened yet

It’s a fact your ego could fill outer space
And I’ll be fine if I don’t see your face

Ever make a friend?
Ever make a mistake?
Baby you pretend
But I know you’re a fake
I’m on the outside
I’m the rejectee

All alone and free
I’m the rejectee
On a losin’ spree
I’m the rejectee
To the Nth degree
I’m the rejectee
From sea to shining sea
I’m the rejectee
