Crying for Attention

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Another Grey Area (1982).

Can you hear me?
Baby can you hear me?
Who do you think I'm talking to?
Is there anyone else near me?
Precious things come in my path
Like new clothes for me to try on
In the end they make me laugh
In the beginning they are something to rely on

I'm not crying for attention Baby
I'm not crying for attention Baby
I'm not crying for attention I'm screaming to be heard
Everybody's listening but you

What's the matter?
Well there is no need to flatter
How do I get you to take notice?
Do I have to break and shatter?
When I feel that I am driven
Over the edge where it's all hidden
I hang my head and hit a table or a chair
I know my place I just can't stay there

I'm not crying for attention Baby
I'm not crying for attention Baby
I'm not crying for attention I'm screaming to be heard
Everybody's listening but you

It's your loving example I need to receive
I need more than a handful Give it to me

Hey sometimes everybody has to be the center of attraction
But I never expect any satisfaction
And I'm not crying I'm not crying I'm not crying
Not crying for attention

Baby I'm not crying for attention
Baby I'm not crying for attention
Don't even say I am I'm not crying for attention
No I'm not crying
Not crying
I'm not crying...
