Lyrics

The Girl
(c)Music & Lyrics by JoJo Worthington

Starry-eyed and terrified,
I try to catch the Girl
Gentle, kind, childish-figure Girl.
She's everything I want to be
I want to be like her
Gentle, kind, childish-figure Girl.

I don't want to grow up anymore
I want to stay my age
I want to not grow old.
I don't want to grow up anymore
I want to be myself
I want to be someone else.

I want to be myself
I want to be someone else
I want to be myself
I want to be someone else

I want to be like
The Girl, Girl
I want to be like
The Girl, Girl

Pale stare and long blonde hair,
She dances down the beach
Perfectly, childish-figure Girl.
This vision I've affixed of her is simply out of blue
The obsession with the childish-figure Girl.

I don't want to grow up anymore
It just seems unfair
Why should I have to bear this?
I don't want to grow up anymore
Have to learn, have to break
Have to learn from my mistakes.

Have to learn, have to break
Have to learn from my mistakes
Have to learn, have to break
Have to learn from my mistakes

I want to be like
The Girl, Girl
I want to be like
The Girl, Girl
