The Lyrics

The sad musings of a computer nerd, sat alone in his house and wondering how he will ever sort his life out. It's worrying how much this applies to me really.
I do it all,
On the web,
On my own.

I don’t need,
Real-life friends,
Or anyone.

If I just sit here,
Fixing Wikipedia.
Would you come and help me,
Add a reference to this fact?

I just don’t know,
How to go,
And meet some girls.

I type and type,
All night long.
But it’s not enough.

If I just sit here,
Will someone come here,
And chat online with me?

Don’t need to have friends,
Sit in on the weekends.
Put things on Twitter,
My kind of social life.

I waste time,
Making sites,
All night long.

I need to fix,
The broken code.
It drives me mad.

I wonder most days,
If I can ever get laid.
How do I find a girl,
Who is a nerd like me?

Forget what I’m told,
I’ll just sit here and get old.
In front of my PC,
Wasting my entire life.

All that I am,
All I will ever be.
Is here on my widescreen,
Tucked in the start menu.

I don’t know how,
I’m confused about why I can’t,
Find anyone who,
Will share some time with me.

If I just sit here,
If I spend my time sat here.
How long will it take me,
To find someone to love?

A good attempt, Tom... a nice idea not quite fully realised (you need some KO lines, and a bit more story development for this to fly). Pacing is also occasionally a bit loose. However some promise shown. 444
