The Girl

I wanna be the girl that keeps you company
That brings you round for tea and talking
I wanna be the girl that makes you feel like dancing
Throught the streets when you’re out walking

I wanna be the girl that takes you by the hand
Go walking on the sand in summer
I wanna be the girl that really understands
The things you dream of, things that matter

I wanna be the girl
That you’ll call your best friend
‘Cause I know, like you know
That’s the first thing that we need
Yes, I know
That’s the first thing we need

I wanna be the girl that gets to know you well
The one you trust, and tell your secrets to
I wanna be the girl that gets to stay a while
To make you laugh and smile, and help you through

I wanna be the girl
You’ll want to call your own
‘Cause I know, that you don’t
Like to be all on your own
No you don’t, like to be
All alone
