Remember When (song)

Poetry By: SashaStorm97
Song lyrics


Inspired by a conversation with my father. He's fairly wise.
It's a song with lyrics and notes and yeah.
I only write nonsense in the summary box because Booksie requires it.

Do you remember when we were little girls and we played with barbie dolls?

Do you remember when we would chase the boys all 15 minutes of recess?

Do you remember when we were quite content to wear clothes that didn't match?

Do you remember when bathing suits didn't hold us back?

Running naked at the beach?

Do you remember when everything was so easy?

And I guess that I'm a little young to be reminiscing

And I guess that I'm a little young to be looking back

And I guess that I'm a little young, seeing as none of this was to long ago

But I know I'm not to young to understand how quickly time flies

In the blink of an eye, you just lost another moment

Do you remember when Greek Gods ruled the land, and the Spartans fought for power?

Do you remember when women would fight all men because they wanted a voice?

Do you remember when slavery was adamant on our own home land?

Do you remember when, it was only yesterday, history was replayed again and again?

Again and again.

And I guess that I'm a little young to be questioning the politics of all of it

And I guess that I'm a little young to understand just how war works

And I guess that I'm a little young, a little ignorant, a little naive

But I know I'm not to young to defend what I believe in

You look at me and you see what you want to see

But look again and you might see

A little girl who understands

A little girl who sees the flaws

A little girl who can save the world
