A Girl With Hair Like Yours


A girl with hair like yours
Was standing on the bus
She hurled me back into
A sudden swirl of us
I couldn't push straight through
I couldn't turn away
We kissed down by the shore
In cold and salty spray

A girl with hair like yours
She turned on all the lights
She broke down all the doors
Invaded all my nights
She told me she was mine
then caught a flight to Spain
I danced around the gym
With you and Don McLean

A girl with hair like yours
Made everything less clear
I set sail for her shore
We walked down every street
She said she couldn't stay
She said she couldn't leave
then never said a word
Until we couldn't breathe

A girl with hair like yours
She soothed me ‘til I bled
We'd walk that extra mile
Wherever darkness led
We crossed the oceans wide
And flew too near the sun
I thought we'd reach the light
When you were twenty one

A girl with hair like yours
was electricity
She lit some ancient fuse
With nails and chemistry
She broke into my veins
And left my heart in flames
We burned in darkness when
Our love was innocent
We danced across the bay
While Harry Nilsson played

(chorus)
It wasn't so spectacular
Not blonde or black it's true
And neither this or that colour
Just curly brown and hanging down
It got me wanting you
