Big Girls Don't Cry

Today's song is Big Girls Don't Cry, by Fergie (2007).

Da da da da

The smell of your skin lingers on me now. 
You're probably on your flight back to your hometown. 
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 straightening 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
Till 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 schoolmate in the schoolyard,
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 and dark outside.
I need to be with myself and center, 
Clarity, peace, serenity. 


La da da da da da
