"Little Girl" as written by and Mark/burton Linkous....
A trick that people use to make you think they are smart
Is confidence when actually they're lost in the dark
Only someone with the mind of a child says he'll grow up
The seven and the avalanche you're life will show up
Its nice to be loved it can never happen too late
I wanna share my food but you have stolen my plate
Hey now, hey now go your way now

You tortured little girl
Showing them what love is all about
Where did all the time go?
Everywhere it's gone, gone, gone

You get the point now
You pick yourself up off the bars
She's on his arm now
Cause they remind you off the pictures on the wall now
But you was young and I wasn't not even born yet
If you think I know a little more bit
Than the average person on the streets you are incorrect
Because I'm ignorant as shit, not here to preach, man
You know I just wanna have fun, go to the beach, man
That's all I am, I'm just a simple guy who talks when
You put a microphone in front of him

You twisted little girl
Showing them what life is all about
Where did all the time go?
Everywhere it's gone

Running left in a relationship
Going in circles and I just can't wait
Running left so we can get in shape
Get in shape because we can't escape

Running left because I'm already late
Really not, I'm in the exact same place
Running laps in your relationship
Running away from the subtleties of

The worlds always amazed at how much cash you made
But not at how you made it, it's just strange
It sounded kind of cool over the phone
It killed your neighbors and their dog and crushed their bones

You tortured little girl
Showing them what laughter's all about
Where did all the wine go?
Every night it's gone

You got it all worked out
Funny little girl
Showing them what pain is all about
Where did all the time go?
Every night it's gone, gone, gone

You're the coolest girl in this whole town
I just wanna parade you around

    General Commentthe first paragraph, im pretty sure says,

    'A TRICK that people use to make you think that they're smart,
    it's confidence when actually they're lost in the dark.'

    and the part
    'If you think...
    I know a little morbid

    We're on the streets to encourage
    Because I'm ignorant,
    And she's not here to preach man
    You know I just want to have fun
    And go to the beach man'

    i always though it said

    'If you think i know a little more than
    the average person on the streets, you arent correct.
    Because i'm ignorant and she's...'

    ((: hope that helps.

    Lyric CorrectionA trick that people use to make you think that they’re smart;
    Is confidence when actually they’re lost in the dark
    Only someone with a mind of a child says they’ll grow up
    Cause surfin’ down the avalanche your life will show up
    It’s nice to be loved it can never happen to late
    I wanna share my food but you have stolen my plate

    Hey now
    Hey now go your way now

    You tortured little girl
    Showing them what love is all about
    Where did all the time go?
    Everywhere is gone, gone, gone

    You get the point now
    You pick yourself up off the bar
    She’s on his arm now
    Does it remind you of pictures on the wall now?
    ‘Cause she was young and I was not even born yet
    If you think I know a little more than
    The average person on the street you aren’t correct
    Because I’m ignorant as shit, not here to preach man
    You know I just wanna have fun, go to the beach man
    That’s all I am, I’m just a simple guy who talks when
    You put a microphone in front of him

    You twisted little girl
    Showing them what life is all about
    Where did all the time go?

    Running left so we can get in shape
    Get in shape because we can’t escape
