Not Gonna Be That Girl by Deacon Blue


I saw her standing beneath the street lamp
Gold beams falling down on her hair
Made it look like
She was wearing a halo
She was surely heaven sent
But I was smart enough to know
Oh no, that's not what it meant
She's not gonna be that girl
She's gonna be what she is
And what she is I want to know
Like the back of my hand
Not at all like I planned
Nothing like what this man
Thought he wanted
But now I want it
I saw her standing in our kitchen light
The evening shadows falling on her face
Made her look like
Some kind of princess in a poor man's house
When she smiles I think of diamonds
And surely she wants out
But she's not gonna be that girl
She's gonna be what she is
And what she is I want to know
Like the back of my hand
Not at all like I planned
Nothing like what this man
Thought he wanted
She's gonna stand where she stands
Where she stands is gonna change
Changing me in every way
Filling up my nights and days
She's the reason that I say
Thank God I was wrong
In what I thought I wanted
She's not gonna be that girl
She's not gonna be what you dreamed up
Or the one that you've had cleaned up
But now you're teamed up
She's not gonna be everything you wanted
So be careful how you flaunt it
She's what you didn't know till you got it
She's not gonna be the one who'll change you
Make up new arrangements
Don't you see that there's no danger
She's not gonna be yours to hold forever
No, not unless you let her
Go with her to make things better
