Hopeless Dreamer

Pretty Little Girl

So sad is the little girl inside me
With hopes and dreams that got washed away
All she wanted was to be a Princess someday
Pretty little flowers she used to pluck
Hold them in her little hands and walk down a make believe aisle
Always stifling a little smile, she really was willing to walk the mile
She’d sit there staring into the sunset for a long long while
Smile as wide as can be, dreams as big as the sea
Not a fear in her soul, heart so carefree
Pretty little feet making marks on the sand
Creating a path to be followed 
 Thinking of somethings blue, somethings borrowed
Stopping every so often
To pick up the little pink flowers strewn aside
She’d made up her mind and even the bridesmaids she did decide
Pretty little girl with a little pink bow
How did she get her little heart broken this bad
No one knows
The little boy who chased her out to sea
Left her making sand castles alone after he called her Sweet Pea
Pretty little girl, still wanting to be little
Has a pink box in her room, memories kept shut tight inside
Goes to bed each night, still dreaming of the high tide
Pretty little girl, no longer little
Living by her self in an apartment thats mostly a mess
Humming soft songs to herself in her little pink dress
She walks proud everyday doing her best
Little does everyone else know
Sometimes its all only for show
Anything pink her heart desires, she is only waiting to outgrow
