I知 just a nickel in a 10「 world.
No matter what I do I don稚 fit in.
I like puttin square pegs in the circle.
I like telling stories from the end.

I知 just a nickel in a 10「 world.
No matter what I have its not enough.
You describe the Louvre as a Museum.
To me its just a building filled with stuff.

I知 just a nickel in a 10「 world.
Everywhere I go I知 odd one out.
You have all the answers to the questions.
I have no idea what life痴 about.

I知 just a nickel in a 10「 world.
Never claimed to have a lot of "cents".
You like to tell the world your secrets.
I like tryin to keep them in suspense.

Alone you fit perfect in this 10「 world.
You may think that I have lost my mind.
I値l just search for someone who痴 just like me.
Cause, a nickel and a nickel make a dime.
