"Girl" as written by Jonah Matranga, Shaun Lopez, John Gutenberger and Chris Robyn....
I am not to blame
I was a little girl
I am still ashamed in a way
But you never said
You were just a little girl
You can always call my name

All for love
So you said
Out of love
So I fell

Things you never said
I was just a little girl
Were you scared or ashamed
Then you took away
My little place in the world
Where I would play

All this time
You will never say
I was just a little girl
Ever again

    General Commentditto. The lyrics are short but their power is profound. It's like he knows exactly how I feel and what I went though!

    General CommentI'm with Controld... I still think it sounds eerily like a young woman/girl who's been raped, or maybe just coerced into sex.

    General Commenti think the interpretation of a girl being molested is too obvious. i think the song has more to offer.

    the lines "you never said / you were just a little girl" in combination with "i am not to blame / i was just a little girl" could imply that something happened between two people, where one side (or maybe both) acted immaturely or at least felt that way.
    the people don't necessarily have to be a male and a female, since the phrase of "little girl" could just imply a stereotypical mental state of insecurity, naivety or something like that.
    these afformentioned actions then lead to alienation in one part as symbolized in the lines "you took away / my little place in the world"
