Playlist: City and Colour, The Girl

Monday 1st February 2016
A song sweet enough for your first dance. Released in 2008, City and Colour's Album entitled 'Bring Me Your Love' features the unquestionably nostalgic ballad, 'The Girl'. Lead vocalist Dallas Green's recognisably sensitive and subtle voice is enough to send shivers down your spine. 'The Girl' is a beautiful ode to love found and forgotten. Almost 6 minutes in length, 'The Girl' features an unceremonious tempo shift half way through, positively changing the warmth of the song.

I wish I could do better by you,
’cause that’s what you deserve
You sacrifice so much of your life
In order for this to work.

While I’m off chasing my own dreams
Sailing around the world
Please know that I’m yours to keep
My beautiful girl

When you cry a piece of my heart dies
Knowing that I may have been the cause
If you were to leave
Fulfill someone else’s dreams
I think I might totally be lost
You don’t ask for no diamond rings no delicate string of pearls
That’s why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl

ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh

One, two, one two three four
I wish I could do better by you
’cause it’s what you deserve
You sacrifice so much of your life
in order for this to work

While I’m off chasing my own dreams (my own dreams)
sailing around the world (’round the world)
Please know that I’m yours to keep
My beautiful girl

And when you cry a piece of my heart dies
Knowing that I may have been the cause
If you were to leave and fulfill someone else’s dreams
I think I might totally be lost

But you don’t ask for no diamond rings (Diamond rings)
No delicate string of pearls (String of pearls)
That’s why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl

ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh
ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh
ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh
ooooo ooo ohhh ohh oh oh

But you don’t ask for no diamond rings (Diamond rings)
No delicate string of pearls (String of Pearls)
That’s why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl.
