Track Name: A Girl Who Reads
A Girl Who Reads, out from books,
ought to wear the kind of look,
that makes you laugh, that makes you cry,
that makes you think that you could touch the sky.

And when it gets to scary parts,
she'll make you think that she could break your heart.
A girl who whispers secrets to me
is passing apples from the highest tree.

She writes you letters and she posts them through your window.
She cuts out pictures from her magazines;
she glues a collage of her favourite movie love scenes.
She juggles comets like they're tangerines.

A girl who knits a hat for me,
she swims for pearls in the deepest of seas.
A girl to watch movies with me and gets excited by the silver screen.

And when it gets to scary parts,
she'll make you think that she could break your heart.
You're gonna get some, of my affections,
as soon as I curb this insurrection.

She wants words again, she won't wait. She won't wait!

It's time to turn the page again for the girl who reads the book.
Your heart's the shape of a moon sized Jaffa cake, said the girl who reads the book.

Uh Oh, oh won't you read to me, read to me a story where there're smiles at the end?
Uh Oh, oh won't you read to me, read to me a story where's there're smile at the end,
where the protagonists are dancing when the sun starts to set
and the animals are singing and lest we forget that there's a moral in a story and it's not hard to get
