This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs,
I absolutely love her,
When she smiles...

How many days in a year
She woke up with hope, but she only found tears?
And I can be so insincere,
Making her promises, never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes
And how many days disappear
When You look in the mirror, so how do you choose?

Your clothes never wear as well the next day,
And your hair never falls in quite the same way,
You never seem to run out of things to say...

This is the story of a girl,
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs,
I absolutely love her
When she smiles...

And how many lovers would stay
Just to put up with this shit day after day?
How did we wind up this way?
Watching our mouths for the words that we say.
As long as we stand here waiting,
Wearing the clothes of the souls that we choose
How do we get there today,
When we're walking too far for the price of our shoes?

Your clothes never wear as well the next day,
And your hair never falls in quite the same way,
You never seem to run out of things to say...

This is the story of a girl,
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad and lonely there,
I absolutely love her
When she smiles...

And your clothes never wear as well the next day,
And you hair never falls in quite the same way,
But you never seem to run out of things to say....

This is the story of a girl,
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs,
I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl,
Her pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looked so sad and lonely there,
I absolutely love her,

This is the the story of a -- girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs,
I absolutely love her
When she smiles...
When she smiles...

    It's a post-modern interpretation of an abusive relationship between the depths of human reason and the intellectual boundaries found by human metaphysical thought.

    Wow couldnt love this song more. It reminds all my friends of me because i dont look happy sometimes but like they always love the way i smile. I love hearing guys sing songs about girls they love because it makes all the girls in the world feel batter knowing that yes men do fall head over heals for girls too not just the other way around.
