Do it when I'm older

Once I was a little girl

I wished upon a star

I took myself away from here 

Somewhere afar

Reality

Not meant to be

Life simply was 

A playground to me

And my mama used to say to me

Girl get your head out the clouds

You're going in the wrong direction 

Will you please turn around

You're not made for the city dear

We love our little town

I stopped what I was doing then

I turned round and told her

Mama dear, I'll do it when I'm older 

Now that I'm older 

I'm still none the wiser 

I went to visit mama

Thought I would surprise her

I held her hand and said

Life is so much more complicated

Than I once thought I knew

Alot of what you told me mama

It turned out to be true

Some days I wake up feeling

like I don't know what to do

She looked up then with cloudy eyes

She gently shook her head

You do right aiming for the skies

Don't end up like me instead

The world's a big and mighty place 

You chase what you dream

I said some things years ago

That I simply didn't mean 

If that little girl told me now

What she did back then

I'd say you'll figure life out somehow

But sweetheart you're only ten

I'd have held her close, looked in her eyes

And told her 

My beautiful girl, don't worry now

Do it when you're older

And my mama used to say to me

Girl get your head out the clouds

You're going in the wrong direction 

Will you please turn around

You're not made for the city dear

We love our little town

I stopped what I was doing then

Turned around and told her

Mama dear, I'll do it when I'm older
