The girl, so confusing Song Lyrics

The girl, so confusing by Charli XCX


[Chorus: Charli xcx]
Girl, it's so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, it's so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl
Man, I don't know, I'm just a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl

[Verse 1: Charli xcx]
Yeah, I don't know if you like me
Sometimes I think you might hate me
Sometimes I think I might hate you
Maybe you just wanna be me
You always say, "Let's go out"
So we go eat at a restaurant
Sometimes it feels a bit awkward
'Cause we don't have much in common

[Pre-Chorus: Charli xcx]
People say we're alike
They say we've got the same hair
We talk about making music
But I don't know if it's honest
Can't tell if you wanna see me
Falling over and failing
And you can't tell what you're feeling
I think I know how you feel
[Chorus: Charli xcx]
Girl, it's so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, it's so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl
Man, I don't know, I'm just a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl

[Verse 2: Lorde]
Well, honestly, I was speechless
When I woke up to your voice note
You told me how you'd been feeling
Let's work it out on the remix
You'd always say, "Let's go out"
But then I'd cancel last minute
I was so lost in my head
And scared to be in your pictures
'Cause for the last couple years
I've been at war with my body
I tried to starve myself thinner
And then I gained all the weight back
I was trapped in the hatred
And your life seemed so awesome
I never thought for a second
My voice was in your head
"Girl, you walk like a b**ch"
When I was ten, someone said that
And it's just self-defence
Until you're building a weapon
She believed my projection
And now I totally get it
Forgot that inside the icon
There's still a young girl from Essex
[Pre-Chorus: Charli xcx & Lorde, Lorde]
People say we're alike
They say we've got the same hair
It's you and me on the coin
The industry loves to spend
And when we put this to bed
The internet will go crazy
I'm glad I know how you feel
'Cause I ride for you, Charli (Charli, Charli)

[Chorus: Charli xcx & Lorde]
Girl, it's so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, it's so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl
Man, I don't know, I'm just a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl

[Outro: Charli xcx & Lorde]
Girl, girl
(It's so confusing)
Girl, girl, girl, girl
You know I ride for you too
(It's so confusing-ing)
