Big Girls Don’t Cry

Fergie - Big Girls Don’t Cry


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
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 got some straightening out to do.
And I’m gonna miss you,
Like a child misses their
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.
Fairy tales don’t always have a happy ending do they,
And I foresee the dark ahead if
I stay.


Like a little school mate in a 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,
Cuz I wanna hold yours too,
We’ll be playmates and lovers,
And share our secret
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.
