What's the point in trying to look your best, when the know one you  
want never looks in your direction, 
He just stares at the one he's wanted all along 
As you fall to the ground you write another fuckin love song for him...  
Verse 2 (As with Verse 1) 
And what's the point in trying to be his one 
when you know its all messed up, this isn't fun 
and you stand in the background trying to get up the nerve  
but you're in the corner out of focus and you're blurred again...

Verse 3 (As with Verse 1) 
And what's the point in trying to be his one 
when you know its all fucked up, and this isn't fun 
and you stand in the background 
trying to get up the nerve  
but you're in the corner out of focus  
and you're blurred again... 
Chorus (As with Chorus Sequence, x4) 
What's the point in trying, yeah.. 
Now what's the point in trying, yeah 
Oh what's, the point in trying 
Whoa what's the point in trying
