Fergie – Big Girls Don't Cry lyrics

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

    A love interest is on a different path, drugs, alcohol, addiction, career, family plans, whatever. Their life will not mix well with your own without emotional conflict and without someone changing, whether you change them or they change you. The relationship will be dark if one has to give up their sense of self to stay in and hold on. Be and adult, appreciate what you had with them, don't argue to change their life to fit yours; find your strength and move on with your own life.

    The wording of this song reminds me of a woman who is:.
    A. Working her way out of a non- working but yet sexual relationship with her previous partner.
    B. Possibly a woman who is in love with someone but is afraid to let herself love someone else because love is a scary thing to feel. Also the character is expressing that she needs peace and clarity, and really you cannot make a relationship work if you do not love and also know yourself. Also some people over analyze the meaning of love and it becomes overwhelming. Love is actually simple but you have to be ready.

    I can really relate with this song. It express how I feel and for me it simply means that, some people come into our lives and quickly leaves some stay awhile leaving footprints in our hearts. Yes life's hang on air @ this point. But this is the way it is. Life would go on and we need to cheer up after breaking us down and. Move on because life is beautiful. Just thanks god they been a part of our life's journey.
