Nine Days: Asolutely (Story Of A Girl)

ABSOLUTELY (STORY OF A GIRL)
/Nine Days/

[Chorus:]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river
And drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

How many days in a year
She woke up with hope
But she only found tears
And I can be so insincere
Making the promises never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearin' the holes in the soles of her shoes
How many days disappear?
You look in the mirror
So how do you choose?

Your clothes never wear
As well the next day
And your hair never falls
In quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

[Chorus]

How many lovers would stay?
Just to put up with
This shitty day after day
How did we wind up this way?
Watchin' our mouths
For the words that we say
As long as we stand here waitin'
Wearin' the clothes of the souls that we choose
How do we get there today?
When we're walkin' too far
For the price of our shoes

Your clothes never wear
As well the next day
And your hair never falls
In quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

[Chorus]

And your clothes never wear
As well the next day
And your hair never falls
In quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river
And drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl
Whose pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her

[Chorus]

When she smiles
