lyrics

You're misunderstood, and when you're used
You are abused, or just ignored
Yours is a lonely, crowded life
You sit alone, between, and watch them
Not know how to treat you
How does no one understand that

[Chorus]
It must suck to be an apostrophe
I would not like to be an apostrophe
I do not want to be an apostrophe
Like you...

It's hard to be
It is hard to be
Or hard belongs to it to be
It makes a difference in the end
I bet you would rather be
Part of a quotation mark
So you would have a friend
Who understands

[Chorus]

You're misundertood, and when you're used
You are abused, or just ignored
Yours is a lonely, crowded life
You sit alone, between, and watch them
Not know how to treat you
How does no one understand

[Chorus]
