"Absolutely (Story Of A Girl)" as written by and John Charles Hampson....
Chorus
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

How many days in a year?
She woke up with hope but she only found tears
And I can be so insincere
Making the promises never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearin' the holes in the soles of her shoes
How many days disappear?
You look in the mirror, so how do you choose?

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

Chorus

How many lovers would stay?
Just to put up with this sh** day after day
How did we wind up this way?
Watchin' our mouths for the words that we say
As long as we stand here waitin'
Wearin' the clothes of the souls that we choose
How do we get there today?
When we're walkin' too far for the price of our shoes

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

Chorus

And your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl
Whose pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her

Chorus

When she smiles

    General Commentthis is a great song from a great cd.

    basically, it's about a girl who has some problems. singer-boy likes her, though.

    Song MeaningBased on what oofus said and my own incite, I think this song is about a couple who's going through a some rough spots. They've probably been together for a while and have gotten very comfortable with each other. They're starting to annoy each other and get in petty fights. Instead of getting closer, they're pulling away from each other and starting to watch what they say around each other to prevent further quarrels. Each day's a pain and they wonder why they put up with it.

    Based on the refrain, I think that the guy is very irritated at the way his girl friends handles things. He thinks she's emotional enough for everyone in the world, let alone just one girl. And it pissed him off. But then they're are those good times, the ones where she's smiling that huge smile that's big enough to light whole world, and he realizes that its all worth it.

    General CommentSome person put this song on the 3 Doors Down lyrics board. Did 3DD cover it or is that guy just crazy? I was just curious. I like the song fine. I used to really like it. I would be interested to hear more from Nine Days.
