then a girl walks in

words and music by

john greene

 

there you are, the dawn of a brand new day,

ready, up and willing, come what may,

happy with, life and another start,

looking to the future, where you play your perfect part

 

then a girl walks in and your dreams turn into dust,

then a girl walks in and your iron resolve just rusts,

then a girl walks in and seven mirrors shatter,

then a girl walks in and nothing else matters

 

there you sit, it's the middle of the day,

you're doing what you're doing, in the usual way,

ups and downs, dodging the slings and arrows,

trying to keep your life within, the straight and narrow

 

thinking bout things that make me what i am

driving thru life with the seat belt off

life's too short for dreams beyond perfection

when she comes will it be alright

 

there you go, its the evening of the day,

socializing, party-going, drink your life away,

drown the day, stagger home at dawn,

happy with your lonely lot, glad to be alone

 

then a girl walks in and your dreams turn into dust,

then a girl walks in and your iron resolve just rusts,

then a girl walks in and seven mirrors shatter,

then a girl walks in and nothing else matters
