Track 4 from Some Velvet Morning's debut long player from 2007, nominated for XFM's album of the year.

lyrics

I was ready to leave
Until I saw you walk through
And now you're looking at me
Like I've been looking at you

Take a look around you
You stand out a mile
There'd be no-one here without you
And so I ask myself why?

You're such a pretty girl
That's such a pretty dress
So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?
Cold hearts and cocaine smiles
Are all that's here inside
So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?

The room could burn to the ground
For all that anyone cares
That's why it's hard to believe
Someone like you is standing there

Take a look around you
There's nothing to see
There'd be no-one here without you
Are you lonesome tonight?

You're such a pretty girl
That's such a pretty dress
So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?
Where lovers, friends and fans
Are measured out in grams.
What's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?

To me it almost seems absurd
Of all the rooms in all the world

Oh I wonder what brought you here
You're such a pretty girl
Did daddy buy that dress?
What's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?
