Araby (she’s Just A Girl)

Every morning through the crack in her doorI catch shadows of her beauty and I turn awayAnd my confused adoration grows with unanswered passionsThat I can’t turn awayShe’s just a girl, just a girlShe’s just a girl, that stirs my foolish blood nowShe’s just a girl; she’s just a girl(She’s just a girl)O – a girl, my window to the worldOne night as I lay awakeI heard voices in my head and she spoke to meI pressed my hands around my faceTo lock images I feared would slip awayShe’s just a girl, just a girlShe’s just a girl, that stirs my foolish blood nowShe’s just a girl; she’s just a girl(She’s just a girl)O – a girl, my window to the world, gone to ArabyAnd everyday I wait for her thereAnd everyday she isn’t there, I walk the streets I walk aloneOceans of sand every where, I said yeahTwo years I’ve not seen herBut the light she cast upon me still can burn a chillAnd when your mind is on the looseYou can Araby yourself to your greatest thrillShe’s just a girl, just a girlShe’s just a girl, that stirs my foolish blood nowShe’s just a girl, o the girlShe’s just a girl, and everywhere I go nowShe’s just a girl, just a girl(She’s -)O – a girl, my window to the world gone to Araby?Gone to ArabyI dream, I dream in ArabyI live for ArabyClose my eyes to Araby.
