Gloria,
You're always on the run now
Running after somebody,
You gotta get him somehow

I think you've got to slow down
Before you start to blow it
I think you're headed for a breakdown
So be careful not to show it

You really don't remember,
Was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling,
Gloria?

Gloria,
Don't you think you're fallin'?
If everybody wants you,
Why isn't anybody callin'?

You don't have to answer
Leave them hangin' on the line, oh-oh-oh,
Calling Gloria

Gloria (Gloria),
I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria)
That you've been living under (Gloria)

But you really don't remember,
Was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling,
Gloria?

A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha,

Gloria,
How's it gonna go down?
Will you meet him on the main line,
Or will you catch him on the rebound?

Will you marry for the money,
Take a lover in the afternoon?
Feel your innocence slipping away,
Don't believe it's comin' back soon

And you really don't remember,
Was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling,
Gloria?

Gloria,
Don't you think you're fallin'?
If everybody wants you,
Why isn't anybody callin'?

You don't have to answer
Leave them hangin' on the line, oh-oh-oh,
Calling Gloria

Gloria (Gloria),
I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria)
That you've been living under (Gloria)

But you really don't remember,
Was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling,
Gloria?

(Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria)
(Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria)

    This might be a song about a girl that lost her innocence by choosing a "bad" way of living. All she wants is to draw the attention by any means even if this brings her life in a dead end. So the song is like asking: "what are you doing gloria? Can't you see that the way you're thinking/living will eventualy mean your end? "
