3 Doors Down – Story Of A Girl lyrics

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks 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
I can be so insincere,
Making the promises never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes
How many days disappear?
When you look in the mirror so how do you choose?

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
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 looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

How many lovers would stay?
Just to put up with this day and all 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 on the soles of our shoes
How do we get there today?
When we're walking too far for the price of her shoes

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
Your 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 looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

Well your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
And 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 looks 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 looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her

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

    I think this song is about an unfaithful person, who still loves the girl he cheated on. The second line in could be referencing the breakup song(s) Cry Me a River, which are sung from the perspective of a person who had just been cheated on. The singer feels little to no guilt about what he did, even pointing how insincere he can be, and subtle changes in one's own day-to-day appearance. This gives the girl a complex, to the point where she tries changing her image, and even loses the smile he adored so much, trying to meet what she feels are his standards. The second could be focusing in on this, by her "hiding" her pretty face behind makeup, in a attempt to look more appealing.
