I'll Be The Girl


I'll be the girl you forget when you leave
When you move on to your future
In the back of your mind is where you place me
And i become the number you made me

But......

When you crawl into the sheets
On the nights that you're lonely
Thats when you'll think of me
And remember us rolling in the sheets
And you'll wonder if i am alone and asleep
Am i laying awake thinking of you
Is someone else holding me
Then you will drift. sleep, dream, you'll see me
I'll be the girl in your dreams

As you're sitting in the restuaraunt
A new girl across the table
Maybe you'll think of me
You might wonder who i'm seeing
Maybe you'll regret never saying
All the things you wanted to
But you didn't want to be seen as foolish
But regardless I'll be the girl you wish you were still pleaseing

Maybe you'll come back, come looking for me
I'm not sure wether or not you'll be happy with what you see
And i don't know what i'll be doing
Not positive where i'll be
But one thing is for sure
I'll be the girl waiting

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
