Little Girl

Daddy used to tell me
If I ran too fast I'd fall and hurt myself
But the ice cream man would ring his bell

And I'd get there before anyone else

I'd see a puppy in the window
And I'd run and press my face against the pane
And Daddy'd say slow down girl
After all these years I guess nothing has changed

That little girl I knew
Ran after you
But she fell this time
And broke her heart in two
Hey that's just like a little girl I knew

Back home there stands an old house
With a picket fence beneath a big oak tree
I can almost see the backyard
And a little girl with freckles
That was me

And there were dreams of toys and storybooks and
Lord it seemed I wanted them so bad
Now 20 years have come and gone
And I'm still chasing things that I can't have

Yes, I'm still that little girl

Daddy I still haven't slowed down yet
