Little Girl

Little girl, I didn’t choose you
Little girl, I didn’t choose your name
But I left your castles burning
Do you think that I’m to blame?

Little girl, you know I’m sorry
Little girl, can I ever make it right?
I can’t help but try to love you
And I’ll try with all my might

And I wonder if my blunder
Will forever be our stain
Little girl, will you let me love you
Though I didn’t choose your name?

Little girl, I’m asking for forgiveness
Little girl, and you know I ask a lot
But don’t say there aren’t hard feelings
Sometimes feeling’s all we’ve got

Little girl, can you feel me shiver?
Little girl, do you know I’m scared as hell?
And I’ve got so many questions
But I guess we just can’t tell

Will I whisper from the sidelines?
Will I help to steer the plot?
Little girl, will you let me love you
Though I know I ask a lot?

Will there be finger paints and flapjacks
And snowdrops in a jar
And squabbles in the car
And faces made of clay?

Broken hearts and teenage wars
And one too many beers
And choking back the tears
Upon your wedding day?

Little girl, I didn’t choose you
Little girl, I didn’t choose your name
But I’ll love you if you’ll let me
And I’ll love you all the same.
