Well, there's no sun that can penetrate these sunroofs
There's no filter that can purify this air
And there's no scars on our hands from one day's labor
We all think that we're alive
We start to die before we ever know better

And I love a girl who lived a hundred years ago
She never cries and always says, "Excuse me."
Sometimes I think that she's the only girl I know
She's why the book is always better than the movie

She said, "A farmer's life is too hard for a woman."
But she loved him, so she married him that spring
She said, "Darling, I won't promise to obey you."
He said, "I wouldn't want a woman who would promise not to try to know better."
No

And I love a girl who lived a hundred years ago
She'll never have to tactfully refuse me
Sometimes I think that she's the only girl I know
She's why the book is always better than the movie

I love a girl who lived a hundred years ago
She's the purity that always will elude me
Sometimes I think that she's the only girl I know
She's why the book is always better than the movie
Because the book is always better than the movie
