A Girl Like You

Album: Gorgeous George (1994)
Charted: 4 32
  • 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

  • Chris from Germany great song. Reminds me totally of Summer 1995. Great time and great childhood
  • 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'
