Mary Chapin Carpenter — Girls Like Me lyrics

Girls like me aren't hard to find
We grow like roses on the vine
And wear our hearts on our sleeves
You probably know a girl like me.
We live alone and in our heads
We eat standing up or in our beds
Guilt and fear merge easily
In the quiet souls of girls like me
Chorus:
And loneliness is like a cold,
Common and no cure we're told
We take to bed perchance to dream
In the blue light of the TV screen.
Girls like me like summer light
A cold beer on a summer night
And boys who aren't afraid of what they see
Inside the eyes of girls like me
Chorus 2:
And hopefulness is like a drug
It makes a girl believe in love
And if somehow you love us back
You think there's something wrong with that
Girls like me aren't hard to trust
Your deepest secret's safe with us
And when it's time to set you free
You can always count on girls like me
It's good to know a girl like me
You used to love a girl like me
