There it goes again
The moments gone and i’m too lame to speak
Another wasted opportunity
Always waiting for something to happen
But nothing’s gonna happen
Not for me
I’m always «buddy.»
I’m a girl for your information
Forever in this situation
Waiting and hoping he’ll notice how i’m feeling
But every time i get him near
I fade away, i disappear
That’s me, never getting heard
He just smiles and walks away
Like i never said a word!
Oh-oh-oh, can anybody hear me?
Am i just blowing air while the whole world marches past?
Still i blow and blow, though i know it gets mе nowhere
I just get lost, lost in thе brass
Flutes don’t sparkle quite like batons
There’s no visual attraction
No stimulus reaction
Pretty music, that’s all the pretty that i got
I’m special in a quiet way
At least that’s what my parents say
Whatever, they were never in the band
Their hair is turning grey
No, they don’t understand!
Oh-oh-oh! can anybody hear me?
I just know, i know i could sparkle on the brass!
But my melody can never be heard clearly
I just get lost, lost, lost in the brass
I get so lost, lost in the brass
Listen i’m not background noise
Listen, i make music
See me, i’m not one of the boys
I shine, i shine, i shine
On my own
So i don’t wear makeup
I don’t stick my hair up
With some awesome-tactic pink beret
No, i’ll never be a majorette
I’m plain, i’m basic
And i sweat when i get nervous
I suck at popularity
People just don’t notice me
Someday high school’s got to end
And i finally find a place
Where this woodwind doesn’t blend!
Oh-oh-oh! there’s a whole world to be pursuing!
If i could just get out and leave this all here in the past
Yeah, they’ll remember me, thinking «gosh, how is she doing?»
And i’ll be long gone
Oh-oh-oh! i’ll be solo obbligato
Cutting loud and clear right through the tuba blast
Soaring high above that clumsy bass vibrato
I won’t be lost, lost, lost in the brass
And finally they’ll see there’s so much more to me
At last, i won’t be lost
Lost in the brass
Lost in the brass!
