You know sometimes, I don't know why
But this old town just seems so hopeless
I ain't really sure but it seems I remember the good times
We're just a little bit more in focus

When she puts her arms around me
I can somehow rise above it
Yeah man, when I got that little girl standing right by my side
You know, I can tell the whole wide world to shove it

Hey, here comes my girl
Here comes my girl
Yeah, she looks so right
She's all I need tonight

Every now and then I get down to the end of the day
I'll have to stop, ask myself what have I done?
It just seems so useless to have to work so hard
And nothing ever really seem to come from it

And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever"
Man, you know I can't begin to doubt it
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right
I know we ain't never gonna change our minds about it

Hey, here comes my girl
Here comes my girl
Here comes my girl
Yeah, she looks so right
She's all I need tonight

Yeah, every time it seems like there ain't nothing left no more
I find myself having to reach out and grab hold of something
Yeah, I just catch myself wondering, waiting, worrying
About some silly little things that don't add up to nothing

And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever"
Man, you know I can't begin to doubt it
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right
I know we ain't never gonna change our minds about it

Hey, here comes my girl
Here comes my girl
Here comes my girl
Yeah, she looks so right
She's all I need tonight
