"Average Girl" as written by and Rebecca Elizabeth Marie/barlow Barlow....
So what I'm not your average girl
I don't meet the standards of this world
Chasing after boys is not my thing
See I'm waiting for a wedding ring

No more dating
I'm just waiting
Like sleeping beauty
My prince will come for me
No more dating
I'm just waiting
'Cause God is writing my love story

Boys are bad; that's certainly not true
'Cause God's preparing one for you
If you get tired waiting till he comes
God's arms are the perfect place to run

No more dating
I'm just waiting
Like sleeping beauty
My prince will come for me
No more dating
I'm just waiting
'Cause God is writing my love story

Sleep, that's the only thing for me
'Cause when I sleep
God's preparing one for me

No more dating
I'm just waiting
Like sleeping beauty
My prince will come for me
No more dating
I'm just waiting
'Cause God is writing my love story

    General CommentI think this song is awesome. It reminds us that God really is working something out for us. We don't need to worry ourselves with trying to please other guys. And the "Sleep is the only thing for me" and "I'm waiting for a wedding ring" is just saying that just because it seems like everyone else is having sex outside of marriage (which would be the "average girl", doesn't mean that we should. We "don't meet the standards of this world" because our hearts are for God, not for the world. Pretty self explanatory song, really, but I love it.

    General CommentI wonder how many of us actually follow this song (myself included), I mean, it looks great in print, trying to be Godly and follow what he want for you by waiting, BUT, 80% of teenagers that promise to wait for marriage, lose their virginity before that. If you think of ten of your friends...
    It's just sad that even though we say this and listen to this song, 80% of us won't be true to our word.

    God can help us wait for the wedding ring, we just need to rely on him.

    General CommentI totally love this song! This should be every girl's guide to life. It really has a message that God is really preparing someone for you, and even you for someone, but all you have to do is wait. He'll come through in the end for you, you just have to trust Him.
    This sets a really good example for not only girls, but guys to keep themselves pure until they are married. When I first heard this song I was really having a hard time with the whole issue of dating and what not, but this really helped me to see things clearly.

    General Commentthis song really means that we should stay pure until marridge, i thing that every girl should live by this song, it's just sad that no one hears it. this is my faveorite song, and the lyrics are amazing! "no more dating, i'm just waiting" i'll wait until i'm serious about finding a match for me. "god is writing my love story" he knows what's going to happen, so don't worry! (i also try to pray for my future husband every day!!!!)

    General Commentyou guys said it all, pretty much. but just a point of something i get out of this part,
    "If you get tired waiting till he comes
    God's arms are the perfect place to run"
    i love that part, a lot of girls, inlcuding me, have tried/try to find satisfaction and love in everything but God, and they are hurt, let down, and beat down. God will never fail you, or leave you. Your relationship with him will last forever!

    General Commentwhoops! I just realized that I meant to say it was great to see how passionate Lauren is about this song in concert, not Alyssa! :)

    General CommentNot everyone will follow the Barlow sisters example and not date at all until they find the right guy that they're gonna marry, but it is extremely important to remain sexually pure. It's also extremely important to only date guys that have the same beliefs as you, because that will make it a lot easier to stay pure, and because God says so: Don't be unequally yoked. Anyway, I love this song! It was so awesome to see how passionate Alyssa is about this song in concert! :)
