Girl

Album: Little Earthquakes (1992)
  • From in the shadow she calls
    And in the shadow she finds a way finds a way
    finds a way
    And in the shadow she crawls
    Clutching her faded photograph my image under her thumb
    Yes with a message for my heart
    Yes with a message for my heart

    She's been everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own

    And in the doorway they stay
    And laugh as violins fill with water
    Screams from the bluebells can't make them go away
    We'll I'm not seventeen but I've cuts on my knees
    Falling down as the winter takes one more cherry tree

    She's been everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own

    Everyone else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own
    Rushin' rivers thread so thin limitation
    Everyone else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own
    Dreams with the flying pigs turbid blue and the drugstores too safe
    In their coats anda in their do's yeah
    Everyone else's girl maybe one day maybe one day one day one day
    She'll be her own
    Smother in our hearts a pillow to my dots

    And in the mist there she rides
    And castles are burning in my heart
    And as I twist I hold tight
    And I ride to work every morning wondering why
    "sit in the chair and be good now"
    And become all that they told you
    The white coats enter her room
    And I'm callin' my baby callin' my baby callin' my baby callin'
    Everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
