Little Girl


Little girl, little girl,

Please go away.

You keep returning.

You keep getting in my way.



Little girl, little girl,

There's no place for you here.

I can no longer help you.

You stand alone to face your fear.



Little girl, little girl,

Your time has came and went.

Don't you realize

That eternity for you was never meant.



Little girl, little girl,

It's time to leave the past behind.

Haven't you realized

Time does not pause, stop, nor rewind.



Little girl, little girl,

Though life has done you wrong,

You are no more that little girl you once were.

You are now woman, you are now strong.



So grow up little girl.

Put the past behind.

For you now face new challenges

And have different adventures to find.
