“The Girl I Knew Somewhere” Lyrics

You tell me that you’ve never been this way before
You tell me things I know that I’ve heard somewhere
You’re standing in the places
And you’re staring down through faces
That bring to mind traces of a girl
A girl that I knew somewhere

I just can’t put my finger on what it is
That says to me, “Watch out, don’t believe her”
I can’t give any reasons, girl
My thoughts are bound down in a whirl
I just can’t think who in the world was that girl?
I know I met her somewhere

Someway, somehow, the same thing was done
Someone, somewhere, did me the same wrong

[break]

So, goodbye, dear, I just can’t take this chance again (Goodbye, dear, I just can’t take this chance again)
My fingers are still burning from the last time (My fingers are still burning from the last time)
And if your love was not a game
I only have myself to blame
That’s as may be, I can’t explain, just ask
The girl that I knew somewhere

And if your love was not a game
I only have myself to blame
That’s as may be, I can’t explain, just ask
The girl that I knew somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere

Peter: Thank you!
Micky: Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. We’d like to carry it on right now with a song by our velvet-voiced midget, the one that expresses how we feel tonight here at this beautiful auditorium. With flowers in our hair and flowers in our eyes, and chipmunk and his family in the audience, we’d like to say that it’s beautiful to be here tonight. And as Mike is tuning his guitar, we have to tell you how beautiful we think this wonderful place is. It’s so nice to be here in this night, feeling free and helping and loving, ringing back to the days of yesteryear, when we were all free and happy in our carefree, loving world. This is called tuning. We’re putting an album out of this pretty soon.
Peter: We tune because we care.
Micky: We tune because we care, ha ha ha. Don’t pick it; it’ll never heal.
