Zoe Wees - Girls Like Us

 

It's hard for girls like us
We don't know who we trust
Not even the ones we love
'Cause they don't know


Stuck here
Stuck here in these waters
So sick to my stomach
Is anybody there?
Red lights
Red lights in the darkness
Everyone's so heartless
Does anybody care?


It's so hard to explain
With your heart in a cage
Only whisper but you wanna shout
'Cause the second you wake
Too much pressure to take
Every part of you wants to cry out


It's hard for girls like us
We don't know who we trust
Not even the ones we love
'Cause they don't know
Try to numb this pain
'Cause we don't wanna get hurt again
Left alone out in the rain
They don't know


Mirror, mirror on the wall
I don't see beautiful
Staring back at me
Watching, watching my heart bleed out
Trying not to freak out


It's hard for girls like us
We don't know who we trust
Not even the ones we love
'Cause they don't know
Try to numb this pain
'Cause we don't wanna get hurt again
Left alone out in the rain
They don't know


It's hard for us
For girls like us
Girls like us
They don't know
It's hard for us
For girls like us
Girls like us
They don't know
So, oh
And the worst part is
When they smile like this
And it hits me hard
Hits me hard
Tryna play it cool
But inside I'm bruised
And it breaks my heart
Breaks my heart


It's hard for all of us
We don't know who we trust
Not even the ones we love
They don't know
Try to numb this pain
'Cause we don't wanna get hurt again
Left alone out in the rain
They don't know


It's hard for us
For girls like us (girls like us)
Girls like us
They don't know
It's hard for us (oh no)
For girls like us (girls like us)
Girls like us
They don't know

Interpretation of Girls Like Us

The song "Girls Like Us" tells us how it is to be ignored and not understood by other people: There are many young girls who cannot even trust those who have close relations to them. When these girls need help, they have no one to pour their hearts out to. The politeness of the people in their social environment is just a facade ("they smile like this"), apparently they don't really want to help ("it hits me hard"). The described girls have the impression that they are not even allowed to show how much they are hurt.

 

It is possible that young teenage women are meant in the song, but many other people may have the same problems. The fact that only a certain group is mentioned in "Girls Like Us" makes the song so emotionally moving.
