You know, sometimes, I don't know why,
But this old town just seems so hopeless.
I ain't really sure, but it seems I remember the good times
Were just a little bit more in focus.
But when she puts her arms around me,
I can, somehow, rise above it.
Yeah man, when I got that little girl standing right by my side,
You know, I can tell the whole wide world, "Shove it,"
Hey, here comes my girl, here comes my girl,
Yeah, she looks so right, she's all I need tonight.
Every now and then, I get down to the end of a day,
I'll have to stop, ask myself, "What've I done?"
It just seems so useless to have to work so hard,
And nothin' ever really seem to come from it.
And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever,"
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it.
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right,
I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it.
Hey, here comes my girl, here comes my girl,
Yeah, she looks so right, she's all I need tonight.
Yeah, everytime it seems like there ain't nothin' left no more,
I find myself havin' to reach out and grab hold of somethin'.
Yeah, I just catch myself wanderin', waitin', worryin'
About some silly little things that don't add up to nothin'.
And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever,"
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it.
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right,
I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it.
Hey, here comes my girl, here comes my girl,
Yeah, she looks so right, she's all I need tonight.
