Mary Chapin Carpenter - Girls Like Me Lyrics




Girls like me aren't hard to find
We grow like roses on the vine
We wear our hearts on our sleeves
You probably know a girl like me.

We live alone and in our heads
We eat standing up or in our beds
Guilt and fear merge easily
In the quiet souls of girls like me

And loneliness is like a cold,
Common and no cure we're told
We take to bed per chance to dream
In the blue light of the TV screen.

Girls like me like summer light
And cold beer on a summer night
And boys who aren't afraid of what they see
Inside the eyes of girls like me

And hopefulness is like a drug
It makes a girl believe in love
And if somehow you love us back
You think there's something wrong with that

Girls like me aren't hard to trust
Your deepest secret's safe with us
And when it's time to set you free
You can always count on girls like me

It's good to know a girl like me
You used to love a girl like me

    "Girls Like Me"

    Girls like me aren't hard to find
    We grow like roses on the vine
    We wear our hearts on our sleeves
    You probably know a girl like me.

    We live alone and in our heads
    We eat standing up or in our beds
    Guilt and fear merge easily
    In the quiet souls of girls like me

    And loneliness is like a cold,
    Common and no cure we're told
    We take to bed, perchance to dream
    In the blue light of the TV screen.

    Girls like me like summer light
    And cold beer on a summer night
    And boys who aren't afraid of what they see
    Inside the eyes of girls like me

    And hopefulness is like a drug
    It makes a girl believe in love
    And if somehow you love us back
    You think there's something wrong with that

    Girls like me aren't hard to trust
    Your deepest secret's safe with us
    And when it's time we set you free
    You can always count on girls like me

    It's good to know a girl like me
    You used to love a girl like me
