  • The girl can´t stop
    Oh that magical power, directing her dreams
    But her only dream was to be up on the screen
    Yes and though she had my love, it didn´t seem real

    It was the power of a million lovers she need to fool
    She got to make it in Hollywood
    Makin' it to the top
    She knows that it might destroy her, but the girl can´t stop

    She got to make it in Hollywood
    Makin' it to the top
    She knows that I really love her, but the girl can´t stop
    She can´t stop

    She didn´t need money
    I had some of that
    But she needed to know it was her those eyes were lookin?at
    Now she´s selling her secrets, and shoppin?her past

    She was a beautiful baby
    But she´s gettin' old fast
    She got to make it in Hollywood

    Yeah, reachin' out for the top
    To feel the eyes of a million lovers
    The girl can´t stop
    She got to make it in Hollywood
    Feelin' her way to the top
    Well, she knows that I really love her, but the girl can´t stop Writer/s: ROBERT L WELCH
