Ever since I met you, you captured my heart.
You treated me like a lady from the very start.
Guess I'm a little girl in her dreams, who doesn't want to see,
That I have to grow older and change on my own.
I want to be a singer, but go it alone.
But, it is so hard for me 'cause I don't want to see that.

I'm too young for a man, but I'm too old for a boy.
So can't we just pretend that I am older that I really am,
But then, only little girls pretend.


I put on all the make-up that I can possible find,
I'm five years older in just a minute's time.
But, I can't compete with the ladies that attract your kind.
So I am rummage through my sister's things,
Hoping to find something that will catch your eye,
To make you change your mind,
So I won't have to leave, so you won't say to me,


I'm too young for a man, but I'm too old for a boy.
So can't we just pretend that I am older that I really am,
But then, only little girls pretend.


I'm left out in the night, I've lost all my senses.
I know this isn't right, but, you've captured my defenses.
I really am in love, well, that's they way I feel.
This game has to stop, 'cause you know it can't be real.


I'm too young for a man, but I'm too old for a boy.
So can't we just pretend that I am older that I really am,
But then, only little girls pretend.


I know I'de make you happy, but, I'm too young for a wife.
Love is always special, but, I know I can't rush my life.
So I'm waiting in the wings to see what life will bring.
And maybe in a few years when I am wise and tall,
Love will light again and shine upon us all.
He says I'm a little girl in her dreams, who doesn't want to see,


I'm too young for a man, but I'm too old for a boy.
So can't we just pretend that I am older that I really am,
But then, only little girls pretend.
