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
Be with myself in 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 blanket
But I've gotta 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
Fairy tales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay


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 blanket
But I've gotta 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)

Like a 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 wanna 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 in center, clarity, peace, serenity yeah

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 blanket
But I've gotta 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
Da da da da da da

    i think this songs means that when it's time for you to move on with your life no matter if it's drugs, a man or whatever that you should be a big girl about it and i refuse to cry about it because i am women enough to stand on my own two feet

    This song is really good. It's not too confusing, but its just right. Not my FAVORITE but its great. I think this song is about how she meets this guy who she really likes, but he's not great for her. After they sleep together he just leaves and she'll miss him a lot.
    She probably dumps him and is trying to comfort him. Then trying to comfort herself. :-(
    She has to go on with her usual stuff, and is very sad.
