you caught me lingering
in another girl's paradise
the way she paints the world --
i want that in my life
emeralds, you should know,
are renting in her meadow
with a stroke beauty lives
how could i resist you are desire
when it all is said, said and done
who can love you and still be standing
there's mary calling up a storm
can i take from you and not keep taking
naked as day Gemma follows him
does it all come down
to the thing one girl fears in the night
is another girl's paradise
through twists and turns
Jasmine foxed me in her grove
arms filled with honey-bells,
st michaels sanford bloods
you have come to discover what you want
what i want is not to want what isn't mine
but i am desire when it all is said, said and done
who can love you and still be standing
there's mary calling up a storm
can i take from you and not keep taking
naked as day Gemma follows him
does it all come down
to the thing one girl fears in the night
is another girl's paradise
does it all come down
to the thing one girl fears in the night
is another girl
is another girl
is another girl's paradise

    General CommentYeah, the way I think of like that as well-it's envy. Seeing a woman who has something beautiful that she wants as well, but she doesn't want to keep feeling like that-not being content with her own life and always wanting what she doesn't have. She wonders if she can take or copy or mimic what it is that she admires about said girl and still maintain her uniqueness and not be something fake. She says "does it all come down to the thing one girl fears in the night is another girl's paradise", and it makes me think she feels like she doesn't want to see any other girls living lives better than theirs or having something she doesn't.
    I can totally relate.
