08. Clothes

BarlowGirl
by BarlowGirl



 

Clothes arenít what they used to be
They donít seem to fit you and me anymore
Modesty is out the door
Flaunting what weíve got and more is in
Yeah itís in

Theyíre saying
Donít ask why just wear what we say
Youíll look like a model if youíll only obey
To get the attention, just do what we say

Pay so much for clothes so small
Was this shirt made for me or my doll?
Is this all I get?
I looked so hot but caught a cold
I was doing just what I was told
To fit in

Weíre saying letís ask why
Donít wear what they say
Donít want to be a model
They canít eat anyway
That kind of attention will fade with the day
So Iíll stand up and say

Clothes that fit are fine
Wonít show whatís mine
Donít change my mind
Iíll be fine

Behind the Song:
'About a year and a half ago, we had just seen a movie and we were upset about the immodest clothing the actresses wore. It made us want to protect our brothers in Christ, and men in general against seeing such things. Often, they have no choice because itís always there, right in front of them. They can try to look away, but the damage has already been done. Itís everywhere. So we just wanted to, in a creative way, not a condemning way, speak up about that issue. Now, many times when we play that song, guys will come up to us after our concerts and thank us for writing it.' - Becca Barlow (BarlowGirl)
