Afterparty for One

from by The Doubleclicks

lyrics

I don’t get invited to red carpets
I’m not on the list for fancy shows
I’m not friends with all the a-list artists
if there’s something cool tonight,
chances are, I don’t know

I don’t have a stylist or an agent
I go to the grocery store alone
tonight I have no scheduled engagements
there is no one blowing up my phone
so what do you do? you

(chorus)
open up the freezer
get yourself a pizza
preheat and bake - don’t wait
it doesn’t get much easier
just a frozen pizza, you don’t need a reason
just a frozen pizza, you don’t need a reason

don’t tell me that it’s tacky or it’s cheap
those words don’t mean anything to me
my power is making my own fun
I can throw an afterparty for one

you don’t need an invitation to party
you don’t need a crown to show you’re great
money doesn’t buy the stuff that matters
you don’t need a reason to celebrate

(chorus)

adventure is your mission
comfort from inside
you don’t need permission
give yourself the prize

open up the freezer
get yourself a pizza
open up the freezer
you don’t need a reason
