a girl like you lyrics – edwyn collins

i’ve never known a girl like you before
now just like in a song from days of yore
here you come a knockin knockin on my door
and i’ve never met a girl like you before

you give me just a taste so i want more
and my hands are bleeding and my knees are raw
cos now you got me crawlin crawlin on the floor
and i’ve never known a girl like you before

you’ve made me acknowledge the devil in me
i hope to god i’m talkin metaphorically
hope that i’m talking allegorically
know that i’m talkin bout the way i feel
and i’ve never known a girl like you before

never, never, never, never
never met a girl like you before

this old town’s changed so much
don’t feel like i belong
to many protest singers
not enough protest songs

and now you’ve come along
yes you’ve come along

it’s all right, yeah it’s all right, yeah it’s all right

/ edwyn collins lyrics
