In Love with a Girl - Gavin DeGraw

"In Love with a Girl" is a song recorded by American singer Gavin DeGraw. It is officially confirmed as the lead single from DeGraw's eponymous second studio album, released on February 5, 2008. The song received many positive reactions. Katie Hasty from Billboard commented: ""In Love With a Girl" opens with heavily distorted guitars as minor chords roll through, but be not deceived: Lyrically, the track is happy, with the 30-year-old songwriter heralding a girl that "understands." One flaw beleaguers DeGraw's normally dependable croon: the unnecessary presence of auto-tuning, which is mightily distracting. Beyond that, "Girl" is a rocking home run in the same ballpark as "I Don't Want to Be." The chorus is buoyant, backed with idyllic drum tracks alongside, driving each word-heavy verse, as DeGraw's snappy piano lines may have fans playing, heaven forbid, air piano."


Gavin Shane DeGraw (born February 4, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter from South Fallsburg, New York. DeGraw began singing and playing piano at the age of eight and attended Berklee College of Music during the same year as artist John Mayer. In 2001, DeGraw released his first album independently named Gavin Live. In 2003, his first major studio album was released, entitled Chariot, on July 22nd. He released Chariot Stripped a year later, an album with the same songs, but the instruments brought down to a minimum. Show more ...

In Love with a Girl - Gavin DeGraw

So many people gonna say that they want you,
To try to get you thinking they really care,
But there's nothing like the warmth of the one who has put in the time and you know he's gonna be there,
Back your border when she knows someone crossed it,
Don't let nobody put you down, who you're with
Take the pain of protecting your name, from the crutch to the cane to the highwire

I'm in love with a girl who knows me better,
Fell for the woman just when I met her,
Took my sweet time when I was bitter,
Someone understands,
And she knows how to treat a fella right,
Give me that feeling every night,
Wants to make love when I wanna fight,
Now someone understand me,
I'm in love with a girl(I'm in love with)
I'm in love with a girl(I'm in love with)

Out the many broken backdoors and windows,
Through the valley of the love of the lost,
Is a hole that is cut through the souls falling down from the thrones without leaving any windows,
But you drown in a piece for the moment,
The moment was over in time,
Then it's gone the hit and run the tactless one has a short life

I'm in love with a girl who knows me better,
Fell for the woman just when I met her,
Took my sweet time when I was bitter,
Someone understands,
And she knows how to treat a fella right,
Give me that feeling every night,
Wants to make love when I wanna fight,
Now someone understand me,
I'm in love with a girl(I'm in love with)
I'm in love with a girl(I'm in love with)

Gonna tell you what you do to think you practice what you preach,
Now I know there's nothing we can't reach,
'cause the heart can't erase once it finds a place to be warm and welcome,
To be held in shelter

I'm in love with a girl who knows me better,
Fell for the woman just when I met her
Took my sweet time when I was bitter
Someone understands,
And she knows how to treat a fella right
Give me that feeling every night
Wants to make love when I wanna fight
Now someone understands me
I'm in love with a girl(I'm in love with)
I'm in love with a girl(I'm in love with)
I'm in love with a girl(I'm in love with)
Who knows me better
Wants to make love when I wanna fight
Now someone understand me
