'O PEARL
YOU KNOW I MISS YOU GIRL
EVEN THOUGH I NEVER
LOOKED INTO YOUR EYES
I KNOW IT'S STRANGE
I GUESS I NEED A FRIEND
SOMEONE I CAN TALK TO
WHO WILL UNDERSTAND
SO HERE I AM ON MY OWN
IN A WORLD WHERE YOU
CAN GET KNOCKED AROUND
I HEARD YOU SING
ABOUT THESE BLUES
AND ALL THE LONELINESS
THAT DRAGS YOU
TO THE GROUND
AND TURNS
YOUR HEART AROUND
AND SHOWS US WHO
WE REALLY ARE
' O PEARL
IT'S ALMOST
LIKE I KNEW YOU
ONLY FOR A MOMENT
THEN YOU WENT AWAY
I HAVE TO SAY
WHY I FEEL THIS WAY
IT'S JUST ANOTHER CHANCE
TO SHED A FEW MORE TEARS
NO ONE KNOWS
WHAT THEY REALLY SAY
AND IF THEY DO
THEY HURT YOU ANYWAY
SEEMS I'M ALWAYS WRONG
YES, I'M TO BLAME
I GUESS ALL MY CHOICES
ARE IN VAIN
CAUSE THERE NOT THE SAME
AS THEIRS ARE
'O PEARL 'O PEARL
YOU KNOW I MISS YOU GIRL
