Dare Art Alade – Not The Girl lyrics

Chorus:
You're not the girl I used to know, you're a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that's left a shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall and I know someday that will be you
Leaving me for good

Verse 1:
I've been sitting here for two straight hours watching you asleep
Wishing I could talk to you
There is no denying we both have emotions running deep
Oh! If I could talk to you
Cos I'm scared, cos when I try to take your hand you are not there
And even though I see the signs you think I'm just scared
Gimme one reason why I should hide my fears
When it's killing me inside

Chorus:
You're not the girl I used to know, you're a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that's left a shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall and I know someday that will be you
Leaving me for good

Verse 2:
We have together for so long, you seem a part of me
Just how did this all go wrong?
And you say you gave me your best just to make it work
Just how did this all go wrong?
Cos I tried, see my eyes are empty from all the tears I cried
Since this "perfect" love is hardly satisfied
Gimme one reason why I should hide my tears
When it's killing me inside

Chorus:
You're not the girl I used to know, you're a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that's left a shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall and I know someday that will be you
Leaving me for good

Bridge:
And if I ever come across a girl like you again
I will never ever let my emotion show
I'll just look the other way; I don't care what you might say
Cos I'm not so sure how much of this my poor heart can take

Chorus:
You're not the girl I used to know, you're a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that's left a shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall and I know someday that will be you
Leaving me for good

Repeat Chorus till fine...
