Girls Like Us

Album: Golden Wings (2021)
  • It's hard for girls like us
    We don't know who we trust
    Not even the ones we love
    'Cause they don't know

    Stuck here
    Stuck here in these waters
    So sick to my stomach
    Is anybody there?
    Red lights
    Red lights in the darkness
    Everyone's so heartless
    Does anybody care?

    It's so hard to explain
    With your heart in a cage
    Only whisper but you wanna shout
    'Cause the second you wake
    Too much pressure to take
    Every part of you wants to cry out

    It's hard for girls like us
    We don't know who we trust
    Not even the ones we love
    'Cause they don't know
    Try to numb this pain
    'Cause we don't wanna get hurt again
    Left alone out in the rain
    They don't know

    Mirror, mirror on the wall
    I don't see beautiful
    Staring back at me
    Watching, watching my heart bleed out
    Trying not to freak out

    It's hard for girls like us
    We don't know who we trust
    Not even the ones we love
    'Cause they don't know
    Try to numb this pain
    'Cause we don't wanna get hurt again
    Left alone out in the rain
    They don't know

    It's hard for us
    For girls like us
    Girls like us
    They don't know
    It's hard for us
    For girls like us
    Girls like us
    They don't know

    So, oh
    And the worst part is
    When they smile like this
    And it hits me hard
    Hits me hard
    Tryna play it cool
    But inside I'm bruised
    And it breaks my heart
    Breaks my heart

    It's hard for all of us
    We don't know who we trust
    Not even the ones we love
    They don't know
    Try to numb this pain
    'Cause we don't wanna get hurt again
    Left alone out in the rain
    They don't know

    It's hard for us
    For girls like us (girls like us)
    Girls like us
    They don't know
    It's hard for us (oh no)
    For girls like us (girls like us)
    Girls like us
    They don't know Writer/s: Hight, Nicholas Rebscher, Patrick Pyke Salmy, Ricardo Munoz, Zoe Wees
