A Story about a Girl

It's hard to pick a favorite, but I will... "Story About A Girl" was done the first day, right after meeting with Bob for the first time.- Duncan Coutts, VoxOnline, 2002


Suddenly something I'm not
You're something that you bought
Was it something I said
My friend
Little girl are you tripping on this?
Are you tripping all over it?
You better come up for air

A story about a girl
A story about the world

And are you waking up slowly
Nothing but lonely
Are you waking up
Holding, holding your breath
Are you looking for something
I promised you one thing
I promise I'll always, always
Be there

Baby girl stand up and fight
This is not some paradise
It's just where we live
Finally you think you're alright
Then it eats you up alive
You better get used to it

A story about a girl
A story about the world

I know you're stuck inside your head
You're low, you better get used to it
I know the feeling has to end
You're strong, it sucks you in again
You're lost, you can't make any sense
This world, it tears you limb from limb
Hold on, you're nothing but the best

I'll always be there
With all my faith
And all my heart
And all those simple things
You are
