From the recording Girl Like That

Take a dreamy journey with The Rev as we find the girl of our dreams….or is she real?

Lyrics

Sipping on some coffee at my favorite hideaway
Day started off just like any other day
That’s when I saw her at a table by the door
In a too-big flannel shirt, I’d never seen her here before


Should I say hello?
Buy her a cup of joe?
Do I really want to be that guy?
Maybe I’ll play it cool or
Or did I stare too long?
Just when I got the nerve
I turned and she was gone


A girl like that
A girl just for me
Heart’s creation, perfect as can be
Something so familiar was she coming back?
What I wouldn’t give for a girl like that

The place I go to think is the place I go to fish
Line in the water, just wishing on a wish
If she were here I’d bait her hook and I’d teach her how to cast
I’d will away the time, and I’d make every moment last


Then she appeared once more
There on the other shore
I called across to ask her name
The smell of sweet jasmine
Was her only reply
She smiled and turned away
Without a goodbye


A girl like that
A girl just for me
Heart’s creation, perfect as can be
Something so familiar was she coming back?
What I wouldn’t give for a girl like that

I get to see her but only for a moment
I try to reach her but she fades away
I wanna hold her but she slips through my fingers
What’s it gonna take, to make her stay?
Baby please stay!


A whisper in my ear and I opened up my eyes
To the smell of morning coffee, a little jasmine on the side
Not a stitch of makeup, she never needed silk or lace
I’d know that flannel shirt just like I know that pretty face

A girl like that
A girl just for me
Heart’s creation, perfect as can be
Something so familiar now I got her back
What I wouldn’t give for a girl like that
