Big Girls Don’t Cry Lyrics

The smell of your skin lingers on me now
You’re probably on your flight back to your home town
I need some shelter of my own protection, baby
To 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’ve got some straightenin’ 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

The path that I’m walkin’, 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 with you
It’s personal, myself and I
We’ve got some straightenin’ 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 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

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 straightenin’ 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

About The Song

Mendengar lagu big girls don’t cry, aku jadi terpikir dengan latar cerita dibalik lagu ini dan makna yang dikandungnya. Seorang gadis tinggal bersama kekasihnya. Hari-hari dihabiskan bersama dengan sang kekasih. Bangun, memasak, menyiapkan sarapan, mencuci pakaian, melepas kekasih kerja, melakukan kegiatan rumah tangga, menanti sang kekasih pulang kerja, mendengarkan cerita sang kekasih, sampai di penghujung hari. Dan esok hari, itu pun terulang kembali. Sang gadis merindukan waktu untuk dirinya sendiri. Saat-saat ia bisa bereksplorasi dengan hal-hal yang ia sukai, melakukan kegiatan bagi perkembangan dirinya. Maka suatu pagi, ia memutuskan untuk pergi dari kekasihnya. Bukan karena ia tidak mencintainya, tapi ia butuh waktu untuk dirinya sendiri.
