Unhappy Girl

Album: Strange Days (1967)
  • Unhappy girl
    Left all alone
    Playing solitaire
    Playing warden to your soul
    You are locked in a prison
    Of your own device
    And you can't believe
    What it does to me
    To see you
    Crying
    Unhappy girl
    Tear your web away
    Saw through all your bars
    Melt your cell today
    You are caught in a prison
    Of your own device

    Unhappy girl
    Fly fast away
    Don't miss your chance
    To swim in mystery
    You are dying in a prison
    Of your own device Writer/s: John Densmore, Robby Krieger, James Morrison, Ray Manzarek
    Publisher: Doors Music Company
