There Was a Girl Lyrics
There was a girl, patent leather and lace, princess curls all around her face.
She’d steal your heart, seal it in a case. There was girl, this was her place.
Out in the field she’d bring you flowers, making believe for hours and hours.
She’d fling her arms, dance like she don’t care, then she’d ask you to watch and she’d glue you right there.
Girl, girl, I miss the girl, how I miss the girl. She’ll fly away, she’ll fly away. Leave your love light on so she finds her way.
There was a girl, a girl I know. I can’t find her here. Where did she go?
In a grown up world, making the scene. Must it eclipse your soul? Must it make you mean?
Well, if I’m gone, would you tell her one thing? She was the world, and the song that I sing.
Would you ask her to dance? You you beg her to sing? To write stories and plays? Paint a water color dream?
Girl, Girl, I miss the girl, how I miss the girl. She’ll fly away, She’ll fly away. Leave your love light on so she finds her way
The essence of you is beautiful girl. Don’t dim it to fit in this broken world.
There was a girl. Where is she now? Just be true to you, stay golden somehow.
