Mary Chapin Carpenter said it best in her song:
We live alone and in our heads We eat standing up or in our beds Guilt and fear merge easily In the quiet souls of girls like me
And loneliness is like a cold, Common and no cure we’re told We take to bed per chance to dream In the blue light of the TV screen.
Girls like me like summer light And cold beer on a summer night And boys who aren’t afraid of what they see Inside the eyes of girls like me
And hopefulness is like a drug It makes a girl believe in love And if somehow you love us back You think there’s something wrong with that
Girls like me aren’t hard to trust Your deepest secret’s safe with us And when it’s time to set you free You can always count on girls like me
It’s good to know a girl like me You used to love a girl like me
