"A Story About A Girl" as written by and George Gershwin....
(Story about a girl)
(Story about the world)

Suddenly I'm something I'm not
I'm something that you bought
Was it something I said
My friend
Little girl are you tripping on this
Are you tripping all over it
You better come up for air

A Story about a girl
A Story about the world

Are you waking up slowly
Nothing but lonely
Are you waking up
Holding, holding your breath
Are you looking for something
I promise you one thing
I promise I'll always, always
Be there

Baby girl, stand up and fight
This is not some paradise
It's just where we live
Finally you think you're alright
Then it eats you up alive
You better get used to it

A story about a girl
A story about the world

Are you waking up slowly
Nothing but lonely
Are you waking up
Holding, holding your breath
Are you looking for something
I promise you one thing
I promise I'll always, always
Be there

With all my faith
And all my heart
And all those simple things you are

I know
It's stuck inside your head
You're alone
You better get used to it
And I know
The feeling has to end
You're strong
It sucks you in again
And you're lost
You can't make any sense
This world
It tears you limb from limb
And hold on
You're nothing but the best

Are you waking up slowly
Nothing but lonely
Are you waking up
Holding, holding your breath
Are you looking for something
I promise you one thing
I promise I'll always, always
Be there

With all my faith
And all my heart
And all those simple things you are

With all my faith
And all my heart
And all those simple things you are
