"The Girl" as written by and Dallas Green....
I wish I could do better by you
'Cause that's what you deserve
You sacrifice so much of your life
In order for this to work

While I'm off chasing my own dreams
Sailing around the world
Please, know that I'm yours to keep
My beautiful girl

When you cry a piece of my heart dies
Knowing that I may have been the cause
If you were to leave, fulfill someone else's dreams
I think I might totally be lost

You don't ask for no diamond rings
No delicate string of pearls
That's why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl

Oh, oh, oh, oh

One, two, one, two, three, four

I wish I could do better by you
'Cause it's what you deserve
You sacrifice so much of your life
In order for this to work

While I'm off chasing my own dreams
Sailing around the world
Please, know that I'm yours to keep
My beautiful girl

And when you cry a piece of my heart dies
Knowing that I may have been the cause
If you were to leave and fulfill someone else's dreams
I think I might totally be lost

But you don't ask for no diamond rings
No delicate string of pearls
That's why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh

But you don't ask for no diamond rings
No delicate string of pearls
That's why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl

    General CommentAw.. This song is super adorable. I feel like I could cry.

    Meaning::

    He's in love with a girl who does everything for him to keep the relationship working. Even though he's off doing his own thing and what he wants, he promises to be faithful to her and he hates to see her sad because he think it's his fault. He can't see himself with anyone else but that and he loves her because she's not materialistic and she's the real thing.

    General CommentThis song is definitely about/for Leah Miller (from Much Music).

    I absolutely love the very last part with the piano, from 4:55 on...it gives me shivers every time.
