CURIOUS GIRLS

2018 CHRIS BUTLER/FUTURE FOSSIL MUSIC (BMI)

(it's a cold cruel world and it's always the hardest on curious girls)

Verse 1
ANY SECOND NOW, YOU'LL DASH/DIVE FOR THE DOOR
I KNOW THE SYMPTOMS, I'VE SEEN 'EM BEFORE

ANOTHER MAN'S BEHIND THE DOUBT IN YOUR FACE
DID YOU SETTLE FOR "GOOD"...WHEN YOU COULD'VE HAD "GREAT"?

Bridge 1
BUT HE'S AN ILLUSION, JUST A DIRTY JOKE
COMES ON LIKE FIRE, GOES RIGHT UP IN SMOKE

MAYBE I'M NOT PERFECT, WON'T FIND THAT ANYWHERE
LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE GONNA LEARN THAT
THE HARD WAY, MY DEAR

Chorus 1
CAUSE IT'S A COLD, CRUEL WORLD
AND IT'S ALWAYS THE HARDEST
ON CURIOUS GIRLS

YES, IT'S A COLD, CRUEL WORLD
AND IT'S ALWAYS THE ROUGHEST
ON CURIOUS GIRLS

I WON'T LAUGH AT YOU, YOU'LL BE FORGIVEN
CURIOUS GIRL
IT'S A COLD, CRUEL WORLD
AND IT'S ALWAYS THE CRUELEST
TO CURIOUS GIRLS

Bridge 2
IMAGINATION...GETS THE UPPER HAND
I UNDERSTAND THAT...NATURAL IN A WOMAN

WRESTLE WITH RESTLESS, YOU KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU
GET IT OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM, DO WHAT YOU'VE GOT TO DO

Chorus 2
BUT IT'S A COLD, CRUEL WORLD
AND IT'S ALWAYS THE HARDEST
ON CURIOUS GIRLS

YES, IT'S A COLD, CRUEL WORLD
AND IT'S ALWAYS THE MEANEST
TO CURIOUS GIRLS

NO "I TOLD YOU SO'S", YOU'LL BE FORGIVEN
CURIOUS GIRL

YES, IT'S A COLD, CRUEL WORLD
AND IT'S ALWAYS THE CRUELEST
TO CURIOUS GIRLS

Verse 2
NO, NO, NO NOT GONNA GET ANGRY...I'M SURE OF MYSELF
DON'T FEEL THREATENED, BY ANYONE ELSE

YOU DON'T MEAN TO HURT ME, BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU?
WHEN FANTASIES CRUMBLE, LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO?

Bridge 3
DON'T BE DISAPPOINTED, SHAMED YOU WERE DOIN' WRONG
WHAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR, WAS HERE ALL ALONG

KINDNESS IS BLINDNESS, WE'LL OVERLOOK ALL THAT
COME TO YOUR SENSES...THEN COME ON BACK
