Edwyn Collins – A Girl Like You lyrics

I've never known a girl like you before
Now just like in a song from days of yore
Here you come a knockin knockin on my door
And I've never met a girl like you before

You give me just a taste so I want more
And my hands are bleeding and my knees are raw
Cos now you got me crawlin crawlin on the floor
And I've never known a girl like you before

You've made me acknowledge the devil in me
I hope to god I'm talkin metaphorically
Hope that I'm talking allegorically
Know that I'm talkin bout the way I feel
And I've never known a girl like you before

Never, never, never, never
Never met a girl like you before

This old town's changed so much
Don't feel like I belong
To many protest singers
Not enough protest songs

And now you've come along
Yes you've come along

It's all right, yeah it's all right, yeah it's all right
