Hands touch, eyes meet
Sudden silence, sudden heat
Hearts leap in a giddy whirl
He could be that boy
But I'm not that girl:

Don't dream too far
Don't lose sight of who you are
Don't remember that rush of joy
He could be that boy
I'm not that girl

Ev'ry so often we long to steal
To the land of what-might-have-been
But that doesn't soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in

Blithe smile, lithe limb
She who's winsome, she wins him
Gold hair with a gentle curl
That's the girl he chose
And Heaven knows
I'm not that girl:

Don't wish, don't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn't born for the rose and the pearl
There's a girl I know
He loves her so
I'm not that girl:

    General CommentI love the part where she says "Don't wish, don't start
    Wishing only wounds the heart" because i think everyone's felt like that before. Awesome song! :)

    General CommentThis song is beautiful- I love it. I think the meaning's pretty obvious; Elephaba wishes she was Galinda, cos she's popular and she's got the guy and everything.
