The Girl Can't Stop

Album: Man Overboard (1980)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This song is about a beautiful and talented but desperate and alienated woman who thinks that stardom in the entertainment industry will give her life the meaning to fill her emotional void. She does achieve some success, but she craves more, and it's implied that she will never truly be happy. >>
