Big Girls Don't Cry

I just moved back into my childhood home to help care for my grandmother. Everything seem so surreal. I half expect to wake up any second from my dream and have things back to normal, but I know that wont happen. So many memories in this house if these walls could only talk. My first steps were taken here, my first day of school, learning to ride a bike, shoot a gun, and even my first contact with a computer. (Smile) Everywhere I turn in this house I see the past I once shared with my family members who are now gone. I tear up a little thinking of the past, I really miss my grandfather, I guess it will just take time.

Da Da Da Da
The smell of your skin lingers on me now
You're probably on your flight back to your home town
I need some shelter of my own protection baby
To be with myself and center, clarity
Peace, Serenity

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightenin' out to do
And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I've got to get a move on with my life
It's time to be a big girl now
And big girls don't cry
Don't cry
Don't cry
Don't cry

The path that I'm walking
I must go alone
I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full grown, full grown
Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay


Like the little school mate in the school yard
We'll play jacks and uno cards
I'll be your best friend and you'll be my Valentine
Yes you can hold my hand if you want to
'Cause I want to hold yours too
We'll be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds
But it's time for me to go home
It's getting late, dark outside
I need to be with myself and center, clarity
Peace, Serenity

La Da Da Da Da Da
