10. Average Girl

BarlowGirl
by BarlowGirl



 

So what Iím not your average girl
I donít meet the standards of this world
Chasing after boys is not my thing
See Iím waiting for a wedding ring

No more dating
Iím just waiting
Like sleeping beauty
My prince will come for me
No more dating
Iím just waiting
ĎCause God is writing my love story

Boys are bad thatís certainly not true
ĎCause Godís preparing one for you
If you get tired waiting till he comes
Godís arms are the perfect place to run

Sleep thatís the only thing
For me Ďcause when I sleep Godís
Preparing one for me

Behind the Song:
'We wanted to write a song that was a personal testimony of our experience with dating Ė or I should say, not dating. We came up with this line, So what, Iím not your average girl, and that inspired the song right there. Weíve actually written 4 choruses to this song. When we were recording, I was laying down the vocals to Average Girl, and when I was about to lay down the third and newest chorus, I stood in front of the mic, and I said to our producer, ďOtto, I canít sing this song. I just donít feel it. It just doesnít really communicate what we want to say.Ē So we pulled out the guitar and within ten minutes we had the 4th and final chorus.' - Lauren Barlow (BarlowGirl)
