measure of me lyrics – indigo girls

the boy he thinks i’m damaged goods
i know he does and i guess he should
i dress like him and i take him down
he gets embarr*ssed when his friends come around

i can get the girl
but the boys just laugh
i can get the girls
but the boys just laugh

so this is a measure of me
even though it shouldn’t be
the lion lays down with the lamb
but i can’t do it so i ain’t worth a d*mn

i can get the girls
but the boys just laugh
i can get the girls
but the boys just laugh at me

come on now graceful
i want you to be
come on now social
i said i want you to be
come on now special
i i want you to be
i want you to be

i the virgin in the woods
tell me now if they are good

is it the boys who needed me
i am you and you set it free

i get the girls
but the boys just laugh
i get the girl
but the boys he laughs at me

i said this is the measure of me
and even though it shouldn’t be
the lion lays down with the lamb
yeah but i can’t do it and i ain’t worth a d*mn
