She turned away what was she looking at?
She was a Sour Girl the day that she met me
Hey! What are you looking at?
She was a happy girl the day that she left me
She turned away what was she looking at?
She was a Sour Girl the day that she met me
Hey! What are you looking at?
She was a happy girl when she left me
What would you do?
What would you do if I followed you?
What would you do if I follow?
Don't turn away, what are you looking at?
He was so happy on the day that he met her
Say, what are you looking at?
I was a Superman but looks are decieving
The rollercoaster ride's a lonely one
I'd pay a ransom note to stop it from steaming
Hey! What are you looking at?
She was a teenage girl when she met me...
What would you do?
What would you do if I followed you?
What would you do if I follow?
What would you do?
What would you do if I followed you?
What would you do if I follow?
The girl got reasons, they all got reasons
What would you do?
What would you do if I followed you?
What would you do if I follow?
What would you do?
What would you do if I followed you?
What would you do if I follow?
Hey! What are you looking at?
She was a happy girl the day that she left me
(The day that she left me The day that she left me)
She was a happy girl the day that she left me
(The day that she left me The day that she left me)
She was a Sour Girl the day that she met me
The day that she left me

    This tune reminds me of my first serious relationship at age 14. I was involved with a very destructive and manipulative individual who took pleasure in making me suffer both psychologically and physically since his own life was horrible and unhappy. I was too young to realize what was happening to me and so afraid to leave the situation for fear of him hurting the ones i loved.

    I think he's singing about a young teenage girl who was also a junky but she was looking to him to save her from the grip of addiction. But like he says in the song"looks are decieving" and things only got worse for her. So she was a happy girl the day that she left him.

    Bitter-sweet relationship I once had, I was that girl. That describes our passionate roller coaster battle of loving each other but never being on the same page.
