“God Help the Girl”

discovered a new song while watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Making Friends and Influencing People a few weeks back, but didn’t really get to looking for the song (although it did stick in my ear like the time I had tinnitus— it just wouldn’t go away!)

so I went searching last night, and finally…

there is no way I’m looking for a boyfriend
there is no way I’m looking for a scene
I need to save some dough
I’m a working girl, you know
I’ll fend attention off I keep to myself

I love my room, I’m getting used to sleeping
some nights I really like to lie awake
I hear the midnight birds
the message in their words
the dawn will touch me in a way a boy could never touch
their promise never meant so much to me

you have been warned, I’m warned to be contrary
backward at school, I wrote from right to left
teacher never cared for me
preacher said a prayer for me
god help the girl, she needs all the help she can get

I sit for hours just waiting for his phone call
I’ll leave the chocolate hidden in the fridge
I’ll play his messages
analyse his intonation
please stop me there, I’m even boring myself

I think of him when I’m doing the dishes
I think of him while looking in the sink
this ain’t no play on words
my love for him is absurd
if he gave me a sign I’d think about it for a week
I’d build it up and then I’d turn him down

you have been warned, I’m warned to be contrary
backward at school, I wrote from right to left
teacher never cared for me
preacher said a prayer for me
god help the girl, she needs all the help she can get
God Help The Girl

not the style of my usual listens, but for some reason I can’t stop listening to this! been listening to it all day (even though I’m almost totally against extremely peppy/poppy/indie-sounding music)

just thought it’d be good to share 🙂
have a great week! (FINALS ARE COMING)
