Different for Girls (feat. Elle King) Lyrics


She don’t throw any t-shirt on and walk to a bar
She don’t text her friends and say, I gotta get laid tonight
She don’t say, it’s ok, I never loved him anyway
She don’t scroll through her phone just lookin’ for a band-aid

It’s different for girls
When their hearts get broke
They can’t tape it back together
With a whiskey and Coke
They don’t take someone home
And act like it’s nothin’
They can’t just switch it off
Every time they feel something
A guy gets drunk with his friends and he might hook up
Fast-forward through the pain push ‘em back when the tears come up
But it’s different for girls

She don’t sleep all day and leave the house a wreck
She don’t have the luxury to let herself go
She won’t call, just to cuss, find a wall, she can punch
When the goin’ gets tough, yeah, the guys they can just act tough

It’s different for girls
Nobody said it was fair
When love disappears
They can’t pretend it was never there

A guy gets drunk with his friends and he might hook up
Fast-forward through the pain push ‘em back when the tears come up
When the goin’ gets tough, yeah, the guys they can just act tough
So, tough
It’s different for girls
It’s different for girls

Bentley's musical style is considered to be more traditional than many of his contemporaries and often contains traditional themes of lost or forbidden love, drinking and cheating. "Lot of leavin' left to do", one of his biggest singles, is also reminiscent of Waylon Jennings' style of Outlaw country with Western Swing influences.
