Real Emotional Girl

She's a real emotional girl
Wears her heart on her sleeve
Every little thing you tell her
She'll believe
She really will
She even cries in her sleep
I've heard her
Many times before
I never had a girl who loved me
Half as much as this girl loves me
She's real emotional

Eighteen years she lived at home
She was Daddy's little girl
Daddy helped her move out on her own
She met a boy
Who broke her heart
Now she lives alone
She's very, very careful
Yes, she is
Yes, she is

She's a real emotional girl
Lives down deep inside herself
She turns on easy
Like a hurricane
You would not believe
Gotta hold on tight to her
She's a real emotional girl
