A Girl Like You

  • I've never known a girl like you before
    Now just like in a song from days of yore
    Here you come a-knockin', knockin' on my door
    And I've never met a girl like you before

    You give me just a taste, so I want more
    Now my hands are bleeding and my knees are raw
    'Cause now you've got me crawlin', crawlin' on the floor
    And I've never known a girl like you before

    You've made me acknowledge the devil in me
    I hope to God I'm talkin' metaphorically
    Hope that I'm talkin' allegorically
    Know that I'm talkin' about the way I feel

    And I've never known a girl like you before
    Never, never, never, never
    Never known a girl like you before

    This old town's changed so much
    Don't feel that I belong
    Too many protest singers, not enough protest songs
    And now you've come along, yes, you've come along
    And I never met a girl like you before

    Yeah, it's all right

    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right
    Yeah, it's all right

  • Karl from Ingatestone, United Kingdomi do often see Edwyn Collins on Nevermind The Buzzcocks and he's quite good. this song was 1995 song and it still amazes me, i remember hearing it on Hits 96 and thinking 'who the hello is this Glaswegian thug'
