You know how it is, girls come and go. And sometimes when they go it really hurts and we tell ourselves lots of different things. I know I have.


Watching her as she goes
With the rest of her clothes
It’s a terrible thing to lose
She must choose which one

And I wasn’t picked
I feel stupid and kicked
Like she kicked me right in the chest
I tried my best to win her

I want to summon my pride
And look her straight in the eye
Say, “there’s something strong down inside:
There is nothing
There is nothing
There is nothing
There is nothing
There is nothing wrong, wrong with me”

Watching her over time
Assessing every line
Telling myself it wouldn’t have worked out
I’m better of without her

She’s all balled up with despair
But she has such beautiful hair
She likes to drink, she likes to go away
It hurts too much to stay

She didn’t last too long
So much unsaid, and now she’s gone
But down inside there’s something strong
There is nothing
There is nothing
There is nothing
There is nothing
There is nothing wrong wrong with her

The Gretchen Phillips Xperience Austin, Texas

I got your lezzie rock right here! Since 1984, keeping it real in Austin, TX. What do I mean by "real"? Transgressive, literate, unapologetic, and unafraid. Plus fun. Don't forget fun. Even when it's sad, let's look for the fun.
