She’s Got Something I’m Looking For

Last night some friends and I went to see Ingrid Michaelson in concert. She’s amazing live and the concert was everything you want a concert to be: intimate, fun, inspiring. I left there with the feeling that if she and I knew each other, we’d be kooky friends.

The guy that opened for Ingrid was a guy named Greg Holden. He’s a baby-faced, guitar playing British kid, and his music was good, but a little generic for a guy still trying to make a name for himself. I happily tuned out until he sang this song, which resonated in my soul in such a way I feel like I could have written it.

It’s called “She’s Got Something.” It’s on his EP and you should give it a listen on youtube or itunes, but until then – you should read the lyrics below: a love letter to a city.

SHE’S GOT SOMETHING by GREG HOLDEN

Well it all started out
In a wonderful city we all know
But on street that few have seen
I couldn’t figure whereabouts
All of our moves were meant to go
But I knew that I was keen

And from that moment on
My life would never be the same

I flew to see her twice a year
But all that did was make it worse
My days grew longer back at home
Then suddenly I saw so clear
This town just doesn’t quench my thirst
Oh no no no

And I knew from that moment on
My life would never be the same
She was a tough one to restrain
She was the one that got away

Get me back, Get me back to New York
She’s got something I’m looking for
Get me back, Get me back to New York
She’s got something I’m looking for

What came next was what I didn’t expect
You might say she swept me off my feet
And there was more upset
But certainly no regrets
Of the night we met within those streets

And from that moment on
My life would never be the same
She was a tough one to restrain
She was the one that got away

Get me back, Get me back to New York
She’s got something I’m looking for
Get me back, Get me back to New York
She’s got something I’m looking for
