Hands touch, eyes meet 
Sudden silence, sudden heat 
Hearts leap in a giddy whirl 
He could be that boy
But I'm not that girl

Gold hair with a gentle curl
That's the girl he chose
And heaven knows
I'm not that girl

Don't dream too far
Don't lose sight of who you are
Don't remember that rush of joy
He could be that boy
I'm not that girl

Every so often we long to steal
To the land of what might have been
But that doesn't soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in

Don't wish, don't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn't born for the rose and the pearl
There's a girl I know
He loves her so
I'm not that girl

I'm not that girl
Don't dream too far
Don't lose sight of who you are
(I'm not that girl)
I won't wish, and I won't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
(I'm not that girl)

I won't dream, but I'm gonna pray
That maybe someday
I'll be that girl
