Pretty girl with the butterscotch hair
Your eyes and the sunshine smile you wear
I can see how you make his soul glow

Pretty girl with the adventurous mind
you envision so much you make me look blind
You spark his life in ways I'll never know

I won't hate you
but oh it stings
how does it feel
to be adored by him

pretty girl there's no need to fret
Cause it's midnight, he's drunk and you're the one in his head
You don't even have to try at all.

pretty girl oh he looks at you
as if life is perfect cause the world is new
In those moments I just feel so small.

I won't hate you
but oh it stings
how does it feel
to be adored by him

how stupid to think
that I could compare
to the pretty girl
with the butterscotch hair

    My InterpretationSimple one but great message.

    Not just accepting that the person you want, loves someone else but also being able to understand and compliment that persons qualities

    "Your eyes and the sunshine smile you wear
    I can see how you make his soul glow"

    "Pretty girl with the adventurous mind
    you envision so much you make me look blind
    You spark his life in ways I'll never know"

    Not sure most people could genuinely do this but I think this shows her respect for him as well as complimenting her. Rather than being bitchy and putting her down and trying to make him change his mind, she's explaining that he has seen something good, a person with qualities.


    "pretty girl there's no need to fret
    Cause it's midnight, he's drunk and you're the one in his head
    You don't even have to try at all"

    This makes me think perhaps she's his friend, maybe a close friend, and is reassuring the other girl that she's not a threat. Admitting to her that maybe they're together one night, he's drunk, but she's the one on his mind.

    I think this part again, although most wouldn't do it, is touching because she admits how much it hurts, but still finds the strength to let him follow his heart and not selfishly try to get what she wants regardless of morality.

    "I won't hate you
    but oh it stings
    how does it feel
    to be adored by him"

    This part is kinda sad because I see it as undermining herself. Like she sees the other girl as having so much more to offer, more special than she is. She lights his world up and it makes her feel like it's because she's somehow better. In reality, the heart wants what it wants. It doesn't analyse and question like the mind. There is no debate.

    "pretty girl oh he looks at you
    as if life is perfect cause the world is new
    In those moments I just feel so small"

    I think we all though, take things personally and look at "why we weren't good enough" rather than accept that what's meant to be, should and will be.

    The last verse is same as above...although she can be strong enough to let them be, she still puts herself down and believes it's because the other girl is better than her. In reality, there is no competing. If two people REALLY love each other, no one can come between that. Competing is going to hurt you and cause unnecessary animosity.

    "how stupid to think
    that I could compare
    to the pretty girl
    with the butterscotch hair"

    Great song and powerful messages. Be yourself, love your qualities and if you REALLY love someone, find the strength from somewhere, anywhere to let them be happy even if that means not having them in your life in the way you'd like.
