Eliza Shaddad – Girls Lyrics

You have been my best friend
Since we were girls
Far removed from young men in
Our weird own world

And we’ve had shit times
We even come to fist fights
That’s how I know you’re lying
When you say it’s alright

Don’t tell me you are safe now
I know you too well not to work it out

I think of green lane smokes
And Bluenotes
And our crazy families
And I’m back at school
In your old room
Tracy Chapman on repeat

I know we’ve had shit times
I know we even come to fist fights
That’s how I know you’re lying
When you say it’s alright

Don’t tell me you are safe now
I know you too well not to work it out
I think you are faking how
Far you are from breaking down

I wish you’d let the walls down
Darling let yourself be found
Darling let the walls down
(When all the lights are red)
Darling let yourself be found
(Love you can confide in me)
I wish you’d let yourself be found

But instead you tell me you are safe now
I know you too well not to work it out
I think you are faking how
Far you are from breaking down

Instead you tell me you are safe now
I know you too well not to work it out
I think you are faking how
Far you are from breaking down
