City And Colour The Girl Lyrics

Last updated: 09/26/2011 11:00:00 AM


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

ooooo ooo ohhh ohh 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 (my own dreams)
sailing around the world ('round 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 (Diamond rings)
No delicate string of pearls (String of pearls)
That's why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl

ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh
ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh
ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh
ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh

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

A Father's Review | Reviewer: Tony Cruz | 9/25/11

When my daughter [who is a college Freshman living 170 miles away] got an iPod Nano to replace her Classic, I "adopted" her old iPod. When I opened an account myself, I "inherited" her old library which included these beautiful lyrics of an equally beautiful and haunting melody. In this day and age where a large fraction of the musical repertoire is marred by carnage and base desires, it's refreshing and just plain wonderful, to see such an inspiring short story set to music. Hearing it always evokes a fond tear when I too, think of my "Beautiful Girl". Thanks, City and Colour. You're loved not only by today's youth, but by their progenitors as well.
