Lyrics

You look just like Sylvia
Well you look like her to me
The way she wore her hair then
Oh, the way she used to be
I've not seen her for a long time
though I've heard she's still around
Her father's living with some girl
who's a year younger than her

She's living in the country now, yeah
Oh, she's trying to get better
Her beauty was her only crime
Yeah, I remember Sylvia

So keep believing
And do what you do
I can't help you
but I know things are gonna get better
And please stop asking
what it's got to do with you
Oh, keep believing
'cos you know that you deserve better

Who's this man you're talking to?
Can't you see what he wants to do?
He thinks if he stands near enough
then he will look as good as you
And he don't care about your problems
He just wants to show his friends
I guess I'm just the same as him
Oh, I just didn't know it then

I never understood you really
And I know it's too late now
You didn't ask to be that way
Oh, I'm sorry Sylvia

So keep believing
And do what you do
I can't help you
but I know things are gonna get better
And please stop asking
what it's got to do with you
Oh, keep believing
'cos you know that you deserve better
Oh, it's true, yeah

So please stop asking
what it's got to do with you
Oh, keep believing
'cos you know that you deserve better
Oh yeah, you know that you deserve better
Oh yeah, you know that you deserve better
Oh Sylvia

Jarvis' comments

Some people get off on people who they think are a bit screwed up, you know what I mean? I think that's a bit pervy to be honest. This is about a girl who was like that, and it's not the one you think, it's another one. People just wanted to stand near her because she looked right for the room.
