You Want a Girl (lyrics)

(Erin Jordan)
You want a girl who smokes like a chimney - who smokes like a chimney to have around. You want a girl who has very long hair. Long hair is very pretty to have around. You want a girl who's a little more petite and a whole lot more sweet - alot more sweet than me. You want a girl who looks like forever and will remind you or how clever you truly are. I am so green.....oh no, I'm really blue.

We both grew up kind of suburban watching too much TV - or maybe I should just speak for me. And so I'll let you pay for dinner if it makes you feel like a winner and I can feel like I am a winner too. How do things turn so sour that used to be so sweet.......

I used to sit alone writing in my tower as far away from faith as I could be. I came to the city to find my kind of people, to find my true love, to find some sort of free. I was green - but now everything's so bright and everything is so gray that used to just be black and white.....

Goodbye, goodbye to all these vivid days. My eyes have grown week and these colours have betrayed. And you want a girl who smokes like a chimney.
