There was a time that you curled up In my lap like a child
You'd cling to me smilin'
Your eyes wide and wild
Now you slip through my arms
Wave a passing hello
Twist away and toss a kiss
Laughin' as you go You used to say «Read me a story.»
And, «Sing me songs of love.»
For you were Princess Paradise
On the wings of a dove
Now I chase you and I tease you
Tryin' to remake you my own
You just turn away and say
«Please leave me alone.»
And I'm a tangled up puppet
All hangin' in your strings
I'm a butterfly in a spider's web
Fluttering my wings
And the more that I keep dancin'
And spinning 'round in knots
The more I see what used to be And the less of you I've got
You are a drawer full of make-up
And rinses and things
You keep changing your moods
Like your earrings and rings
But tonight while we played tag
For five minutes in the yard
Just for a moment I caught you off-guard
And I'm a tangled up puppet
All hangin' in your strings
I'm a butterfly in a spider's web
Fluttering my wings
And the more that I keep dancing
And spinning 'round in knots
The more I see what used to be And the less of you I've got
Now you write your secret poems
In a room just for your dreams
You don't find time to talk to me About the things you mean
And what I mean is--
I have watched you take shape
From a jumble of parts
And find the grace and form
Of a fine work of art
Hey, you, my brand new woman
Newly come into your own
Don't you know
That you don't need
To grow up all alone
