Girl With The World In Her Eyes
Here I go! Geronimo! Vertigo to free fall
The girl sets my heart racing, but my engine is stalled
Now I pace myself 'cause I gotta stay in front man
Blast like an astronaut, crash like a stunt man
To worlds where witty boys get the pretty girls they merit
But she holds the saddle, the stick, the carrot
So I rise like degrees in July or fall faster
Luck is a lady, but I wouldn't put it past her
As she fills me with thrills like a roller coaster Or slams me with amps
like a bath with a toaster
Now my knees are shaking and I find my spine is gone
From holding up the pedestal that I've put her on
I should've studied science cause I tend to forget
That for every action there's an equal and opposite reaction
I guess I must've slept through that one, cause now I'm on thin ice with
no traction

[CHORUS:]
Is she thinking of you? No she just thought she knew me
But she's looking at you! No she's looking through me
And now I realize I've got no shape or size to the girl with the world in
her eyes
So I keep bouncing
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Or concede to Morrissey that pretty girls make graves
I've shed the serpents skin and lost my head like Ann Boleyn
While rough winds do shake the darling buds of May
I ask you for this glance through vast expanse of thin veneers
Steered by butterfly eyes while drinking drinks of siren's tears
I fear the reaper cause it's hard like heavy metal
When the beasts that you beat off are handsome devils
Yet, the consequence of compliments
Is that I am graced with graces periodic like the elements
Her imminence influences subatomics
So I want to do her right
Like Shakespeare does a sonnet
I'm on it. harassed by bees in bonnets
Slave to her affection like gramps to gin and tonics
Loyal to my master like a pack of Pekinese
While I try to hold my place with weakened knees

[CHORUS:]

Is she thinking of you? No she just thought she knew me
But she's looking at you! No she's looking through me
And now I realize I've got no shape or size to the girl with the world in
her eyes
So I keep bouncing
Maybe I should call you up so we can spend some time together
Take a walk or have some dinner, I don't care I'll do whatever
My heart shivers every single time I get a busy signal Can I get an
operator?
So you know if she said bounce with me, I'd bounce with her
Cause every minute that I'm in it counts with her
There's only one sin I wouldn't renounce for her
And if she gave me half a glance then I would counsel her
That she should bounce with me, so I can bounce with her
Cause every minute that I'm in it really counts with her
There's only one sin I wouldn't renounce for her
But do I have a chance!

[CHORUS:]

Is she thinking of you? No she just thought she knew me
But she's looking at you! No she's looking through me
And now I realize I've got no shape or size to the girl with the world in
her eyes
So I keep bouncing
Yeah, she's got the world in her eyes
