"Nowhere Girl" as written by Steve Hovington and Rick Holliday....
Nowhere girl you're living in a dream,
Nowhere girl you stay behind the scenes,
Nowhere girl you never go outside,
Nowhere girl 'cause you prefer to hide.

Every day, every might
In that all old familiar light
You hang up when I call you at home.
And I try to get through
Ant I try to talk to you
But there's something stopping me from getting through.

Nowhere girl what you had you need,
Nowhere girl all functional and neat,
Nowhere girl in self-imposed exile,
Nowhere girl a martyr-like denial.

Every day, every might
In that all old familiar light
You hang up when I call you at home.
And I try to get through
Ant I try to talk to you
But there's something stopping me from getting through.

No way girl [Repeat: x 4]

Every day, every might
In that all old familiar light
You hang up when I call you at home.
And I try to get through
Ant I try to talk to you
But there's something stopping me from getting through.

No way girl [Repeat: x 4]

    General CommentWell i'm first to comment on a song that is a classic 80's hit. However not too well-known, is it contradictory to say that this song is a well known obscure song? At the clubs... one crowd favourite. The lyrics are self explanatory. Great song from an unknown band. I wish they put out more song of this caliber.

    General CommentThis song always takes me back to 1982 when it was in heavy rotation on the legendary WHFS. This is the quintessential song of its genre/era. The piano really sets the mood.
    The lyrics - I hear them as "You hung up when I called you at home", which implies he only tried once and she wasn't expecting the call.
    I feel these lyrics intend some irony: that it is the singer who is socially isolated, though he projects that trait on the unreachable girl.
    (Or was that so obvious it was what you all meant about the lyrics being self-explanatory).

    General CommentThis is obviously about a hard to reach person, it’s up to you if you would like to take it literal or as a metaphor to a person that you can’t seem to be able to connect on higher level *my favorite song!!!

    General CommentWow, I can't believe this song is so unknown. I absolutely love love love it and looked a certain version
    of it for years, then came upon it Music Trader. It was an old used copy of JUST SAY YESTERDAY, a compilation
    that also had "Kiss me with your mouth" on it. That's the only 2 songs I knew. This was of course before
    things like Itunes and downloading music. It's when you actually had to go out and search for stuff. Because
    of all of this, I hold this cd and song very close to my heart.
