lyrics

If I were still a little girl
I might cry to hear you laughing at me
Today I think I’ll die
‘Cause I’ve been struck by many stones over time

If I were still a little girl
I might try to hold my head up high
‘Cause sticks and stones may break my bones
But words they cut my throat and leave my heart in desperation
If I were still a little girl

Before my mind was raped my spirit broken body jaded
Before my heart was tattered, skin defiled, love abused
Before I towed the line, believed in hate, assimilated
When I was a little girl
Before I knew the truth

If I were still a little girl
I might lie down quietly and take it
Without a protest
Knowing now in fear to bite the hand which feeds

If I were still a little girl
I might wonder why it doesn’t make sense
The way the wind can twist of words
And skillfully of obscure good deeds

Before I broke the chains, took down the guard and invaded
Before I deconstructed tropes and popped of paradigms
Before reified myself emerging liberated
When I was a little girl
When I cried

But I am not that little girl
No I am not that little girl
No more

And you won’t want me when you meet me now
No you won’t know me I’ve grown so tall and how I’ve learned oh what I’ve learned
Since I was a little girl
