[Hook 1]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

[Verse 1]
How many days in a year
She woke up with hope
But she only found tears
And I can be so insincere
Making her promises never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes
How many days disappear
When you look in the mirror
So how do you choose

[Hook]
Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

[Hook 1]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

[Verse 2]
Now how many lovers would stay
Just to put up with this every day and all day
Now how did we wind up this way
Watching our mouths for the words that we say
As long as we stand here waiting
Wearing the clothes or the soles that we choose
Now how do we get there today
When we're walking too far for the price of our shoes

[Hook]
Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

[Hook 1]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

[Hook]
Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

[Hook 1]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

[Hook 2]
This is the story of a girl
A pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her

[Hook 1]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

[Outro: Nine Days]
When she smiles

The song was written by the band's vocalist/guitarist, John Hampson in August 1998, in an attempt to write in an edgier style.[3] Though he "exaggerated things and used tons of figurative language to express something," Hampson confirmed in a 2003 interview with music magazine Impose that it was written for his wife, Teresa Savino, who was his girlfriend at the time it was composed.[4][5] Its genesis stemmed from an argument the two had prior to a concert the band was playing in Long Island.[6] After their fight, he "saw her talking to someone across the room, and she started laughing. I realized that as much as she aggravates me, I absolutely love her when she smiles."[7] It was also inspired by Hampson's uncertainty about getting married: "I just wasn't ready. I was basically stalling her and making her cry. I was good at that."[8]

    Hello guest!

"'Story of a Girl,' is autobiographical," Hampson tells Impose magazine. "I exaggerated things and used tons of figurative language to express something, but it's about me, and it’s about my wife - who was then my girlfriend - and her wanting to get engaged. I just wasn't ready. I was basically stalling her and making her cry. I was good at that."

      [Chester Bennington:]
      I've lied to you
      The same way that I always do
      This is the last smile
      That I'll fake for the sake of being with you

      [Chester Bennington (Mike Shinoda):]
      (Everything falls apart
      Even the people who never frown
      Eventually break down)
      The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
      (Everything has to end
      You'll soon find we're out of time left
      To watch it all unwind)
      The sacrifice is never knowing

      [Chester Bennington:]
      Why I never walked away
      Why I played myself this way
      Now I see your testing me pushes me away
      Why I never walked away
      Why I played myself this way
      Now I see your testing me pushes me away

      I've tried like you
      To do everything you wanted to
      This is the last time
      I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you

      [Chester Bennington (Mike Shinoda):]

      I've got an aching head
      Echoes and buzzing noises
      I know the words we said
      But wish I could've turned our voices down
      This is not black and white
      Only organized confusion
      I'm just trying to get it right
      And in spite of all I should've done

      I was not mad at you
      I was not trying to tear you down
      The words that I could've used
      I was too scared to say out loud
      If I cannot break your fall
      I'll pick you up right off the ground
      If you felt invisible, I won't let you feel that now

      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible

      You didn't get your way
      And it's an empty feeling
      You've got a lot to say
      And you just want to know you're being heard
      But this is not black and white
      There are no clear solutions
      And I'm just trying to get it right
      And in spite of all I should've done

      I was not mad at you
      I was not trying to tear you down
      The words that I could've used
      I was too scared to say out loud
      If I cannot break your fall
      I'll pick you up right off the ground
      If you felt invisible, I won't let you feel that now

      Wouldn't it be nice if we were older?
      Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
      And wouldn't it be nice to live together
      In the kind of world where we belong
      You know it's gonna make it that much better
      When we can say goodnight and stay together
      Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
      In the morning when the day is new?
      And after having spent the day together
      Hold each other close the whole night through
      Happy times together we've been spending
      I wish that every kiss was never ending
      Wouldn't it be nice?
      Maybe if we think, and wish, and hope, and pray, it might come true
      Baby, then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do
      We could be married
      And then we'd be happy
      (Sleep tight oh baby goodnight
       Ooh baby sleep tight oh baby)
      Wouldn't it be nice?
      You know it seems the more we talk about it
      It only makes it worse to live without it
      But let's talk about itWouldn't it be nice?

      Displaying Modesty and Discretion
      13, 14. (a) How can we show modesty when a privilege of service is extended to us? (b) How did Brother A. H. Macmillan set a fine example in displaying modesty?
      13 There is much we can learn from Gideon’s modesty. For example, how do we respond when a privilege of service is extended to us? Do we think first of the prominence or prestige that will result? Or do we modestly and prayerfully consider whether we can fulfill the demands of the assignment? Brother A. H. Macmillan, who finished his earthly course in 1966, set a fine example in this regard. C. T. Russell, the first president of the Watch Tower Society, once asked Brother Macmillan for his thoughts on who might take charge of the work in his absence. In the discussion that followed, Brother Macmillan did not once promote himself, though it would have been quite convenient for him to do so. In the end, Brother Russell invited Brother Macmillan to consider accepting the assignment. “I stood there half dazed,” Brother Macmillan wrote years later. “I did think it over, very seriously, and prayed about it for some time before I finally told him I would be happy to do all that I could do to assist him.”
      14 Not long afterward, Brother Russell passed away, leaving the office of the Watch Tower Society’s presidency vacant. Since Brother Macmillan was in charge during Brother Russell’s final preaching tour, a brother remarked to him: “Mac, you have a strong chance of getting in yourself. You were Brother Russell’s special representative when he was gone, and he told all of us to do as you say. Well, he went away and never did return. It looks like you’re the man to carry on.” Brother Macmillan responded: “Brother, that’s not the way to look at this matter. This is the Lord’s work and the only position you get in the Lord’s organization is what the Lord sees fit to give you; and I am sure I’m not the man for the job.” Then Brother Macmillan recommended someone else for the position. Like Gideon, he had a modest view of himself—a view we do well to adopt.

      Εκδήλωση Μετριοφροσύνης και Φρόνησης
      13, 14. (α) Πώς μπορούμε να δείχνουμε μετριοφροσύνη όταν μας προσφέρεται κάποιο προνόμιο υπηρεσίας; (β) Πώς έθεσε ο αδελφός Α. Χ. Μακμίλαν θαυμάσιο παράδειγμα όσον αφορά την εκδήλωση μετριοφροσύνης;
      13 Υπάρχουν πολλά που μπορούμε να μάθουμε από τη μετριοφροσύνη του Γεδεών. Παραδείγματος χάρη, πώς αντιδρούμε όταν μας προσφέρεται κάποιο προνόμιο υπηρεσίας; Μήπως σκεφτόμαστε πρώτα την εξοχότητα ή το γόητρο που θα μας δώσει; Ή συλλογιζόμαστε με μετριοφροσύνη και προσευχή αν μπορούμε να ανταποκριθούμε στις απαιτήσεις του διορισμού; Ο αδελφός Α. Χ. Μακμίλαν, ο οποίος ολοκλήρωσε την επίγεια πορεία του το 1966, έθεσε θαυμάσιο παράδειγμα ως προς αυτό. Ο Κ. Τ. Ρώσσελ, ο πρώτος πρόεδρος της Εταιρίας Σκοπιά, ρώτησε κάποτε τον αδελφό Μακμίλαν ποιος, κατά τη γνώμη του, θα μπορούσε να αναλάβει την επίβλεψη του έργου κατά την απουσία του. Στη συζήτηση που ακολούθησε, ο αδελφός Μακμίλαν δεν πρόβαλε ούτε μια φορά τον εαυτό του, αν και θα τον βόλευε αρκετά κάτι τέτοιο. Στο τέλος, ο αδελφός Ρώσσελ ζήτησε από τον αδελφό Μακμίλαν να εξετάσει την πιθανότητα να δεχτεί το διορισμό. «Έμεινα αποσβολωμένος», έγραψε ο αδελφός Μακμίλαν χρόνια αργότερα. «Πράγματι το σκέφτηκα, πολύ σοβαρά, και προσευχήθηκα σχετικά με αυτό για κάποιο διάστημα προτού τελικά του πω ότι θα χαιρόμουν να κάνω ό,τι μπορούσα για να τον βοηθήσω».
      14 Δεν πέρασε πολύς καιρός, και ο αδελφός Ρώσσελ πέθανε, αφήνοντας κενή τη θέση του προέδρου της Εταιρίας Σκοπιά. Εφόσον ο αδελφός Μακμίλαν είχε την επίβλεψη στη διάρκεια της τελικής περιοδείας κηρύγματος του αδελφού Ρώσσελ, κάποιος αδελφός τού είπε: «Μακ, έχεις σοβαρές πιθανότητες να πάρεις εσύ τη θέση. Ήσουν ο ειδικός εκπρόσωπος του αδελφού Ρώσσελ όταν έφυγε, και εκείνος είπε σε όλους μας να κάνουμε ό,τι λες εσύ. Έφυγε λοιπόν και ποτέ δεν επέστρεψε. Φαίνεται ότι εσύ είσαι ο άνθρωπος που θα συνεχίσει». Ο αδελφός Μακμίλαν αποκρίθηκε: «Αδελφέ, δεν είναι αυτός ο τρόπος για να προσεγγίσουμε το ζήτημα. Πρόκειται για το έργο του Κυρίου, και η μόνη θέση που λαβαίνεις στην οργάνωση του Κυρίου είναι αυτή που ο Κύριος θεωρεί ότι πρέπει να σου δώσει. Είμαι, λοιπόν, βέβαιος ότι δεν είμαι εγώ το κατάλληλο πρόσωπο». Κατόπιν ο αδελφός Μακμίλαν σύστησε κάποιον άλλον για αυτή τη θέση. Όπως ο Γεδεών, ήταν μετριόφρων στην άποψη που είχε για τον εαυτό του—μια άποψη την οποία πρέπει να υιοθετήσουμε και εμείς.

      Luna tú, 
      cuantos son los cantos que escuchaste ya 
      cuantas las palabras dichas para ti 
      que han surcado el cielo solo por gozar 
      una noche el puerto de tu soledad. 

      Los amantes se refugian en tu luz 
      sumas los suspiros desde tu balcón 
      y enredas los hilos de nuestra pasión 
      luna que me miras ahora escúchame. 

      (only you can hear my soul) 

      Luna, 
      tú sabes el secreto de la eternidad 
      y el misterio que hay detrás de la verdad 
      guíame que a ti mi corazón te oye 
      me siento perdido y no sé... 

      No sé que hay amores 
      que destruyen corazones 
      como un fuego que todo lo puede abrazar. 

      Luna tú, 
      alumbrando el cielo y su inmensidad 
      en tu cara oculta qué misterio habrá 
      todos escondemos siempre algún perfil. 

      Somos corazones bajo el temporal 
      ángeles de barro que deshace el mar 
      sueños que el otoño desvanecerá 
      hijos de esta tierra envuelta por tu luz 
      hijos que en la noche vuelven a dudar. 

      Que hay amores 
      que destruyen corazones 
      como el fuego que todo lo puede abrazar. 
      Pero hay amores 
      dueños de nuestras pasiones 
      que es la fuerza que al mundo 
      siempre hace girar. 

      (only you can hear my soul)
