The smell of your skin lingers 'round 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

And 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 that 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.

The path that I'm walking I must go alone
I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full grown
The fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay

And 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 that 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 a little schoolmate in the schoolyard
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 best friends
And share our secret worlds
But it's time for me to go home (for me to go home)
Its getting late, dark outside
I need to be with myself in center
Clarity, peace, serenity

And 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 that 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
They don't cry
