Jordan Zevon – This Girl lyrics

I've got the world on a string
I keep it wrapped around my neck
Living on the street of dreams
Just got my notice to evict
These days I only see the sunset through my rearview mirror
And the objects of my life are further than they once appeared

But there's this girl, there's this girl
There's this girl, there's this girl
This girl who guides me through the pain
And puts me on my feet again
There's this girl, there's this girl, there's this girl

Seems like I've been having one of those days
Since sometime back in 1998
And a turnaround is surely on the way
Or maybe that's me spinning down the drain
And I suppose my woes are only momentary stains
Just one foot in the door and all my worries wash away

'Cause there's this girl, there's this girl
There's this girl, there's this girl
This girl's my private Avalon
An island miles from all that's wrong
There's this girl, there's this girl, there's this girl

There's this girl
The rescue from the pessimist avalanche
There's this girl
Who loves her bitter victim of circumstance

'Cause there's this girl, there's this girl
There's this girl, there's this girl
This girl whose eyes can light my way
Through the haze that fills my day
There's this girl, there's this girl, there's this girl
