"One More Girl" as written by and Patricia J. Griffin....
I took off my iron smile, babe,
'cause I found it weighed me down
Tomorrow when the world wakes up
I'll be in another town

You don't know what you want
At this moment could be me
You move your hand across my knee
Turn me into some novelty

[Chorus]
I guess I'm One more girl on a stage
Just one more ass that got stuffed in some jeans
And its one more day that you don't find true love
Because you don't know what it means
Yeah yeah

Did you ever take the time to
Think about who I might be
Where I've been, what I'm thinkin'
Who I love, what I've seen

Yeah yeah, Yeah yeah, Yeah yeah
Oh oh

One more car out on the road there
You might pass on your way home
Someone's sister, someone's wife or
Just some bitch who's probably got no life

Yes I'm

[Chorus]

One day we'll be a pile of ashes
For the rest of time it passes
So take your hand off my knee
Do you know what it means to be

[Chorus]

Yeah yeah

    General Commentmy favorite wreckers song.

    i feel like i can relate to this a lot. to me, it's about a girl who is seen as a sexual conquest rather than a real person with feelings and a history. it's a great song, i can't stop listening to it.

    General CommentYou move your hand across my knee / Turn me in to some novelty

    That's gotta be the best line in this song.

    This is my favorite song, as well. I think it's basically about how women are classified into certain stereotypes and, with those titles, they get parallel reputations. They aren't thought of as individuals, but as a group. That's what I get from it anyway...

    General CommentI took off my
    Iron smile, babe
    Because I found
    It weight me down, To-
    Morrow when
    The world wakes up
    I'll be in
    Another town

    You don't know
    What you want
    At this moment
    Could be me
    You move your hand
    Across my knee
    Turn me into some
    Novelty

    Guess I'm
    One more girl on the stage
    Just one more ass that got
    Stuffed in some jeans
    And it's one more day that you
    Don't find true love
    Because
    You don't know
    What it means
    Yeah

    Did you ever
    Take the time to
    Think about who
    I might be
    Where I've been
    What I'm thinking
    Who I loved
    What I've seen
    Yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    Oh, oh

    I'm one more car out
    On the road that
    You might pass on
    Your way home
    Someone's sister
    Somone's wife or
    Just some bitch who has probably
    Got no life

    Yes I'm
    One more girl on the stage
    Just one more ass that got
    Stuffed in some jeans
    And it's one more day that you
    Don't find true love
    Because
    You don't know
    What it means
    Yeah

    One day we'll be
    A pile of ashes
    For the rest of
    Time that passes
    So take your hand
    Off my knee
    Do you know

    One more girl on the stage
    Just one more ass that got
    Stuffed in some jeans
    And it's one more day that you
    Don't find true love
    Because
    You don't know

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite songs. They didn't write it, though I wish they did, as it's beautiful. Very sad, but beautiful. I think every women can relate to this song as we've all felt like an object before (men can feel like an item too but it's a very femine view so I don't think they relate to the song as well)

    You move your hand across my knee
    Turn me in to some novelty

    definetly the best lines

    General CommentWritten by the ever-so-amazing Patty Griffin, covered by the Wreckers. You can't beat it.

    It's a very feministic song. Don't classify women and view them as sexual objects. Every woman is someone's mother, daughter, sister, wife...they have feelings, too.
