Like a little girl

Location

I remember a time

Back when I was just a little girl

I could be friends with you

In my mind you were my world

Back then, making friends

It was easier than anything

Yes, boys were boys and girls were girls

But what did that even mean?

This was back before

The birds and the bees

Back when gender

Didn’t mean anything

Now its more complex

More complicated

I cant have a guy friend without the rumors

Without one of us having a crush on the other

Most of my guy friends are more like my brothers.

Cut a girl some slack

I really wish I could go back

To a time so long ago

When I was just a little girl

When you were just my friend

                                                                                                    But you could still be my world
