Someday
I'll look into her green eyes
And know that she'll come with me
A girl like you

Too many
Things I do not care for
But one thing that I adore
Is a girl like you

I'll always try
To look you in the eye
It's okay
With a girl like you

Tomorrow
I think I'll tell you something
The thing that I haven't said
To a girl like you

And even if
I don't know what the day will bring
Still I can tell most anything
To a girl like you

I'll always try
To look you in the eye
It's okay
With a girl like you
It's okay
With a girl like you
A girl like you

    General CommentPete sings with everything he has. I love him as an artist. He is truthful with his emotions and this song is about a girl he's in love with. Love is a huge thing and he's never been in true love before. This girl is perfect and he is waiting for that perfect moment to tell this perfect girl something that he's never told another, that he loves her.

    General Commentyour right... it is the perfect song. I'd absolutely melt if this song was written for me. Obviously not, but the way he wrote the song you actually get emotionally involved.

    General CommentI think this song is about the girl that he loves, but cannot have. He is saying that someday...he'll find someone just like this girl, and then he'll be happy. But he can't be happy now because he can't have the girl he loves. But someday he'll fall in love with someone else, but he wants that girl to be just like the one he loves now. I love all of Pete Yorn's songs, but this one is my personal favorite.

    General CommentI think Sarsbo is right. At least that's what I think of when I hear it. It is like he is telling the woman he loves that he loves her but realizes it is not possible for them to be together. Therefore his only alternative is to find someone just like her to love.
    His songs are so honest and emotional I just love them. It is like he pours his life out for us to relate to.

    General CommentThis IS a great song, but to make a small clarification: Pete wrote this song after seeing a friend of his who had a major crush on a girl he liked. So there ya go.
