GIRL GONE RIGHT
 

By LQPickens, Marie Siemens & Clint Clarkson

 

V1:

Just the other night, talkin’ to the moon

Sitting on her window seat in the heat of June

Looking for an answer through shadows of blue

It’s a test of faith to hold on to her values

 

PC:

Must she give up her innocence in the name of fun?

Pressure to grow up and fit in is a hard one but…

 

C:

She’s a girl...gone right

Thinks before she speaks

She's soft; she's not weak

Not always easy to stand and be strong

She doesn’t want to give in; just to go along

She's a girl...gone right

 

V2:

Sometimes she feels so all alone

Standing up for reasons all her own

Her island of sanity in a sea of adversity

She holds on to her beliefs and the courage to see

 

PC2:

It’s okay turning right when the others turn left

Take a different road without regret

 

C:

She’s a girl...gone right

Thinks before she speaks

She’s soft; but she’s not weak

Not always easy to stand and be strong

She doesn’t want to give in and just go along

Cause she's a girl...gone right

 

B:

She don’t need to be part of an in-crowd

And she hopes in time her pure heart will win out

 

C:

Cause she’s a girl...gone right

Thinks before she speaks

She's soft; she’s not weak

It’s her heart not conformity she seeks

She doesn’t want to give in and just go along

She’s a girl…gone right 

[she's not going wrong; she's a girl gone right]

‘GIRL GONE RIGHT’ Backstory:

This song is about times in a young girl’s life [ex. tweenhood, teenhood, beginning adulthood etc.]
When she must decide how she is going to turn out and what path she takes in her life.
Whether she takes the easy way [the wrong turn] or the hard way [the right turn]
to direct her way she lives.  It’s about being a ‘good girl’ and doing the right things.
