This is the conclusion to "Alien Girl" story.

lyrics

I woke up today
feeling like you
I woke up today
a sunny afternoon

My mamma saw the stars and
she laughed for hours
My girl shes brand new she loves
so many colors

I wake up today
looking for you
Who knows what you'll say
what might be true

the colors they turn
purple and blue
the colors they turn
purple and blue

You must be weary
of running wild
You must be weary
my poor young child
don't trust nobody
for they're all crazy
dont trust nobody
for they're all crazy

You smell like summer and You look like the sea
well mama
I'm just glad to see, that
you are okay, yeah
you are alright
come home with me i'll take you out tonight
you're not that wild but you smell like the sea
yeah
i heard about you in history
well
i turned around and you looked at me
and i smiled and i smiled and i smiled
so set me free


cause i said
you laugh like me
and you talk like you
well we look like each other
ain't that something new

i said
you look like me
and i laugh like you
yeah we look like each other
ain't that something new?

no,no,no,no,
no,no,no,no,
no,no,no,no

no it ain't
no no i said
we look like each other
no not at all
yeah we look like different
but we're not that tall
and the way
you look well i close my eyes
and you look so bright
then i open them
and you wear your disguise
you wear your disguise
you wear your disguise

I just want to see
what you look like
I just want to see
what you look like

cause i know what you smell like
and i know what you taste like
and i hear what you sound like
and i love what you are like
and i love what you are like
and i love what you are like
and i love what you are like
and i love what you are like


so what do you look like?
what do you look like?
what do you look like?

you look like love
you look like love
You Look Like Love
to me.
