"There's The Girl" as written by and Nancy Wilson Holly Knight....
You're a polished diamond
Now you're feeling kinda rough
Yes I know how long you've been searching
For the perfect touch
You better hear what I say
I can tell your eyes are just about to
give you away

Cause there's the girl that you were after
Feel your heart beating faster now
There's the girl you were after
Can you say that you don't want her anymore

Just take my word now
Cause you know it's true
she ain't good enough
for the likes of you
You better hear what I say
I can tell your eyes are just about to
give you away

Cause there's the girl you were after
Feel your heart beating faster now
There's the girl that you were after
And all this time you can't get past her
There's the girl you were after
Broken glass, complete disaster
There's the girl you were after
Can you say that you don't want her anymore

I believed you once
When you explained
That it wasn't so tough
To forget her name

Cause there's the girl that you were after
Feel your heart beating faster now
There's the girl that you were after
And all the time you can't get past her
There's the girl that you were after
Broken glass complete disaster
There's the girl that you were after
Can you say that you don't want her anymore

There's the girl
There's the girl
There's the girl
There's the girl (can you say that you don't want her anymore)

    General CommentWell, these lyrics from the actual song compared to the lyrics in the video change my view. Extra lyrics include the lines, "She's gonna break your heart again" and "She's setting you up (my friend?)" - I originally thought it was about a guy who lost interest in someone after being in love for such a long time. With extra lyrics, I'm now not sure.

    General CommentGot to know this song 17 years ago, one of my favorites and was hard to understand the lyrics. Knew it was a guy I love with someone, but unsure if the girl was good or not. Last year I went through the same situation ,for the first time in my life, described in the lyrics and know the answer, it’s about a toxic and emotional codependent relationship... the guy do suffered a lot during and if he was able to, to overcome it...

    General CommentI just saw Heart last week and Nancy said she wrote this about a male friend of hers.

    I had always heard the lyrics as telling him off. Lines like "She's not good enough, for the likes of you." as her calling the guy arrogant.

    Turns out she meant that literally. She was speaking to a good guy who kept going back to a woman who was bad for him.
