The smell of the air lingers with me now
You're probably on your flight back to your hometown
I need some shelter of my own protection, baby
To 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've got some straightening out to do

And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I've got to get 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

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightening out to do

And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
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

Like the little schoolmate in the schoolyard
We'll play Jacks and Uno cards
I'll be your best friend and you'll be mine
Valentine

Guess you can hold my hand if you want to
'Cause I wanna hold yours too
We'll be playmates and best friends
And share our secret world

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightening out to do

And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
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
