  • Run, whirlwind run
    Further and further away
    Into the sun
    In, 20 minutes
    Everyone will remember you when you're gone
    And your heart, is a stone
    Buried underneath your pretty clothes
    Don't you know people write songs about girls like you?

    What will you do when something stops you?
    What will you say to the world?
    What will you be when it all comes crashing
    Down on you little girl?
    What would you do if you lost your beauty?
    How would you deal with the light?
    How would you feel if nobody chased you?
    What if it happened tonight?

    How would you cope it the world decided to
    Make you suffer for all that you were?
    How could you dance if no-one was watching
    And you couldn't even care if they were?
    What would you do if you couldn't even feel?
    Not even pitiful pain
    How would you deal if the indecision
    Eating away at the days?

    Don't you know people write songs about girls like you?
    About girls like you
    About girl like you
    Don't you know people write songs about girls like you?
    About girls like you
    About girl like you

    Everything you say is higher
    All the things that make you lighter
    Everything you say is higher
    See it in the grey you crier

    Don't you know people write songs about girls like you?
    About girls like you
    About girl like you
    Everything you say is higher
    All the things that make you lighter
    Everything you say is higher
    See it in the grey you crier Writer/s: Aaron Short, Alisa Xayalith, Thom Powers
