lyrics

Coming to us from so far away
We moved you from your home not once, but twice
The few friends you leave behind
Will start wearing pretty dresses and dating little boys
Doing the things that little girls do

The pressure for someone who is fifteen
That balancing act is far more pressing
Than the one that wins us applause
Especially when I've not a clue why anyone
Why would anyone do this?
You decided for me, oh, didn't you?

I'll never be a little girl like you were

Seared into my head
Two thousand routines, maybe three
Who ever heard of a precious little thing like me
Having trouble with a night's sleep?
Waking to the vision of grown-ups judging me
Grown-ups who don't even know me

Katrina, my sweet child
You know that I love your kind
'Cause your not too old
But even still, you're too young for me
You're too young to hold

I'll never be a little girl like you were
And there'll never be another time when I'm fifteen
