I've been watchin' you like a hawk
I know you're hidin somethin'
When we're together I can hardly breathe
I feel like it's gonna spill out of me
What I believe

I would rather wait 'till it looks so bad
That you can't no longer hide it from me
I would rather wait for the chance
To get you in hide me

You've got a girlfriend in this city
You've got a girlfriend in this city
Oh, is your girlfriend pretty?
Does she look like me?
Does she blow your mind all the time
But I hear just passing time
You've got a girlfriend in this city
And it's not me

I stay at home on the other side of town
Waiting, oh Lord, would you bring me flowers

You are far away and when I don't know
It won't hurt me, but it do
And worse is killing you all the guilt inside
I can see yeah, it's true

You've got a girlfriend in this city
You've got a girlfriend in this city
Oh, is your girlfriend pretty?
Does she look like me?
And I'm dying to know what she's like
Although I know it won't make this right
You've got a girlfriend in this city
And it's not me

Does she wears her hair up?
Or her hair down?
Is she quite?
Or is she loud?
Does she dress up?
Or she dress down?
Why you keep her around?

Push it to you, yeah (repeat)

You've got a girlfriend in this city
You've got a girlfriend in this city
Oh, is your girlfriend pretty?
I want to see
Does she blow your mind all the time
But I hear just passing time
You've got a girlfriend in this city
And it's not me

Girlfriend [x2]
Girlfriend in this city [x2]
I Know about a girlfriend
I Know about a girlfriend in this city
I know about it (repeat)

    These lyrics arent correct, its "who is she to you" not "push it to you", "till it gets so bad" not "looks so bad", "or are you just passing time" not "but i hear just passing time", its "red-handed" not "in hide me", "waiting all out" not "oh lord", "what i dont know" not "when i dont know" and "quiet" not "quite". But it definitely means a lot, because I've been in this situation and I can relate to it.
