Little Sister Leaving Town (Tikaram Tanita)

As always I stop to speak Some girls like to say their piece As always I turn to you Don't understand what you're doing And Light up this town Grow weary and back down It's such an amazing sight To be found - Little sister leaving town Says the poet "I won't grass" Some things are better left and not taken to task I guess I knew she was a Rose She knows what hurts and how to hold If your daddy he turned round Let the grass around him scream the sound I'm so sorry for these tales you're telling Sometimes you can't account Light up this town Grow weary and back down It's such an amazing sight To be found - Little sister leaving town And sometimes it's absurd A minor triumph when you hear the words "I'm just trying to stake my place No real fears upon this face" And my wishes Nobody says All the signs when I cross the days I'm just holding back for you Sometimes that helps too Light up this town Grow weary and back down It's such an amazing sight To be found - Little sister leaving town
