Little girl don't you forget her face.
Laughing away your tears
when she was the one who felt all the pain.
Little girl never forget her eyes.
Keep them alive inside.
I promise to try, but it's not the same.
Keep your head held high, ride like the wind.
Never look behind, life isn't fair,
That's what you said, so I try not to care.
Little girl don't run away so fast.
I think you forgot to kiss, kiss her goodbye.
Will she see me cry when I stumble and fall?
Does she hear my voice in the night when I call?
Wipe away all your tears, it's gonna be alright.
I fought to be so strong, I guess you knew
I was afraid you'd go away too.
Little girl you've got to forget the past.
And learn to forgive me.
I promise to try, but it feels like a lie.
Don't let memory play games with your mind.
She's a faded smile frozen in time.
I'm still hanging on, but I'm doing it wrong.
Can't kiss her goodbye, but I promise to try.
