"Girls" as written by and Luke Richard/parker Concannon....
They go for you with their love and fear
They go being and never disappear
If you rub yourself along now
You'll get down to their kind of emotion

Straight to your heart
Sweet doll
Straight to your heart

Gotta love and forgive
Or you can't breathe
Gotta search and be with
Or you can't breathe

I got something to give
Before I leave
I can never run back

I'm smothered in, memories of you are too
What is given back, we can't unglue
All this sticks to me, some days sweet like honey
Some days tart like Marmite

Sticks to your heart
Sweet doll
Straight to your heart

Gotta love and forgive
Or you can't breathe
Gotta search and be with
Or you can't breathe

I got something to give
Before I leave
I can never run back

The croft, the croft
Old lofts and searching
The path, the path
Of always searching

All from the heart
All from the need
All from the love
All from the greed

The croft, the croft
Old lofts and searching
Right from the
Right from the heart

Old from the need
Old from the love
Old from the greed

I tell you this old heart is covered in glue
I can never run back or forget you
I tell you this old heart is covered in glue
I could never run back or forget you

Gotta love and forgive
Or you can't breathe
Gotta search and be with
Or you can't breathe

I got something to give
Before I leave
I can never run back

    General CommentI don't know why, but this song brings tears to my eyes and keeps brining me close to actualy crying. At the same time, it makes me feel so happy. Nizlopi seriously make fantastic music. I hope they keep it coming.

    General Commentthis song makes me cry and makes me smile. i think this song is about him telling all the boys how girls are like and how amazing it is when you fall in love with a girl and how to treat a girl like a queen. however i think it has a sad twist because when he is singing i think he is rememebering an old relationship that he still is not completely over yet "I tell you this old heart is covered in glue I can never run back or forget you" a great song!!!

    General CommentAgree tears to eyes is what thissong does, why? I have no idea. I think maybe because of what BSR said about the sad twist. I prefer this over JCB song. I think this underlines they're not a one hit wonder and are a great band

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song
    The singer's voice gives me shivers down my spine
    In fact, the whole song does :]
    I especially love the chorus:

    Gotta love and forgive
    Or you can't breathe
    Gotta search and be with
    Or you can't breathe
    I got something to give
    Before I leave
    I can never run back

    I don't know why :]
    I think it's about a break up though, and the guy just can't let go, mainly because he doesn't want to.
    Just a gorgeous song

    General CommentEr, these lyrics are totally different from what is on Nizlopi's website. o.O Just sayin..

    Like the
    "They go for you
    With their love and fear
    They go being
    And never disappear
    If you rub yourself along now
    You'll get down to their kind of emotion
    Straight to your heart
    Sweet doll
    Straight to your heart"

    is

    "They go deep, with their love and fear
    The go deep and never disappear
    If you rub yourself for lonf enough
    you get down to their code of emotion
    Stright to your heart, sweet darlin', straight to your heart"

    and the

    "The croft, the croft
    Old lofts and searching"

    is

    "The craft, the craft,
    of laughs and searching"


    Well, I'm kinda confused now. o.O

    General CommentI think the lyrics SoNaiveYetSo sound a bit more accurate to me.

    I never really thought of this song as being mainly about a break-up. Although I think this is certainly part of it, I interpreted it as being mostly about how strong and deep girls can be, and how they are fearless to show this to the world, but boys feel the need to compress it. He's saying that you shouldn't need to hold it in, you should let it out, "or you can't breathe". He's admiring girls' abilities to be so strong and go through life like a livewire of emotions open to the world, carefree, while some men cannot be strong enough to do this and it just all "sticks to their heart", meaning they always carry it around with them.

    I'm not sure if I'm right and I'm not saying those are my personal views, this is just how I percieved the song from the moment I heard it. And frankly, I love it! :)
