Pains in the window
Trouble down in the heart
The resin white ceiling
Blood, dripping, flows
Out on the front line
Preachers sweep the earth
Out on their backsides
With nothing in common, with no problem

She's just a girl...
Just...just a girl, yeah...
Just one time around
She has little chance to make good
Distance of her lie
They're silent in their words

Burning fires
See the red, true beliefs
This maid in progress
Betrayin' your mother's need for a shelter

Oh, just a girl...
Just...just a girl
Just one time around
She had little chance to make good
Treats them now, she's young
But it can be taken away
Just one time around...can be taken away
We all make mistakes

Hush my baby...don't you cry...
You're my little alibi
Oh baby, please...I need some sleep
Hmm, now be taken
You with me

Just a girl (5x)
Just a kid, yeah...

    General CommentI actually found the studio version of this song(I was surprised there WAS a studio version). I saw the song on the back of a CD called "The Versus Sessions" and I had to buy it. It also has another Pearl Jam song I had never heard, called "Mystery". Kind of ironic, really...

    General CommentHow come all my favorite Pearl Jam songs are the ones that no one ever talks about?

    General CommentThat's because "mystery" was put on a pearl jam sessions CD, but in fact its not a pj song at all.
    "Just a girl" needs to be played live again, i like it.

    General CommentThieves in the window
    Trouble down the hall
    The resin white ceilings
    Blood, dripping, flows
    Out on the front line
    Preachers sweep the air
    Out on their backsides
    With nothing in common, with no problem

    She's just a girl...
    Just... just a girl, yeah...
    Just one time around
    She has little chance to make good
    Distance of her lie
    Decided in the words

    Burning fires
    Fevered, she beliefs
    This maid in progress
    Betrayin' your mother's need for a shelter

    Oh, just a girl
    Just... just a girl
    Just one time around
    She had little chance to make good
    Treats them now, she's young
    But it can be taken away
    Just one time around... can be taken away
    We all make mistakes

    Hush my babe... don't you cry...
    You're my little alibi
    Oh please... I need some sleep
    Hmm, now be taking
    You with me

    Just a girl (5x)
