"Big Girl Little Girl" as written by Sia Furler and Henry Binns....
Big girl, little girl, you're a rip curl,
Tearing your way through this huge swirl,
I know you're mad, you're on a war path,
You know you don't want to be bury more

Friends
Then we could be friends,
I wish that we were friends,
But you can't stop, stop seeing us as the enemy

Yeah
Oh oh oh oh

Big girl, it's hell being unwell,
You know you're stuck where you fell,
Your words give birth like a rosemary,
You know you don't want to bury more

Friends,
Then we could be friends,
I wish that we were friends,
But you can't stop, stop seeing us as the enemy

Friends,
Then we could be friends,
I wish that we were friends,
But you can't stop, stop seeing us as the enemy

Can't bury more friends,
Then we could be friends,
I wish that we were friends,
But you can't stop, stop seeing us as the enemy

Friends,
Yeah we could be friends,
I wish that we were friends,
But you can't stop, stop seeing us as the enemy

You know with every cruel word that you utter,
That you bury yourself even deeper every day,
Oh little girl, there's enough love in this circle,
You can shackle yourself or be free from this pain

You know with every cruel word that you utter,
That you bury yourself even deeper every day,
Oh little, girl there's enough love in this circle,
You can shackle yourself or be free from this pain

You know with every cruel word that you utter,
That you bury yourself even deeper every day,
Oh little girl, there's enough love in this circle,
You can shackle yourself or be free from this pain

    My InterpretationI absolutely love this song! I think it's my favorite from "we are born". Maybe I'm wrong, but this song reminds me of high school. It makes me think of all of those back-stabbing "mean girls" who talk about their friends behind their backs. I think every girl goes through that whether they want to admit it or not. Some people never grow out of it. What I get out of the song is that you won't find true friends unless you start being true yourself. You can't talk bad about people or treat the people in your life badly or they will treat you the same way and then you're left with no one to trust. I think Sia is saying that once you stop being a mean, untrustworthy person that people will treat you better yourself and the relationships in your life will get better or you'll make better ones with new people.

    "Oh little girl, theres enough love i this circle,
    You can shackle yourself or be free from this pain." <-- my favorite part!

    My InterpretationFor me think it's about a girl growing up, trying to find herself, rebelling against her family (the loving circle). She actually wants to be accepted but she's so used to acting angry and rejecting that she's stuck in the role she created for herself. She wants to act differently but doesn't know how.

    just like my sister. maybe that's the reason I see it like this.
