So you had a little trouble
Back in your home town
Had to leave in a hurry
Before it all came down
So why you broke a promise
Could not be found
Well that's the same old story
Cos I'm a lot like you
It's all right with me all the crazy things you do

Chorus:
(lovely) girls like you
(restless) boys like me
We get a little angry, cos we've been lied to
(lovely) girls like you
(restless) boys like me
Never fit in, cos we never try to
Make it with the chosen few, oh no

It was another lost night, on the same old street
Another sidewalk savior, coming after me
Trying to help me jesus, he won't come for free
I see the pavement movin', underneath my feet
I turn to look for you, but you were looking back at me

(lovely) girls like you
(restless) boys like me
Get a little angry, cos we've been lied to
(lovely) girls like you
(restless) boys like me
We never fit in, cos we never try to
Make it with the chosen few, oh no

Sailing on along on a ship full of fools
We never learned how to play by the rules
Learning the hard way that innocent hearts must pay
Said innocent hearts must...

(guitar solo)

We got to stand together, yeah we gotta face the facts
You know the dream they gave us, now they wanna take it back
The future is not ours, we just let it slip away

Girls like you
Girls like you
Girls like you
(restless) boys like me
Never, never try to fit in...
