The Girl

City And Colour

I wish I could do better by you
'Cause that's what you deserve
You sacrifice so much of your life
In order for this to work

While I'm off chasing my own dreams
Sailing around the world
Please, know that I'm yours to keep
My beautiful girl

When you cry, a piece of my heart dies
Knowing that I may have been the cause
If you were to leave, fulfill someone else's dreams
I think I might totally be lost

You don't ask for no diamond rings
No delicate string of pearls
That's why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl

Oh, no, oh
Oh, no, oh

One, two, one, two, three, four

I wish I could do better by you
'Cause that's what you deserve
You sacrifice so much of your life
In order for this to work

While I'm off chasing my own dreams
Sailing around the world
Please, know that I'm yours to keep
My beautiful girl

And when you cry, a piece of my heart dies
Knowing that I may have been the cause
If you were to leave and fulfill someone else's dreams
I think I might totally be lost

But you don't ask for no diamond rings (diamond rings)
No delicate string of pearls (string of pearls)
That's why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

But you don't ask for no diamond rings (diamond rings)
No delicate string of pearls (string of pearls)
That's why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl
Because that's what you deserve
