You're A Big Girl Now

By Bob Dylan

You're A Big Girl Now

Blood On The Tracks

Our conversation was short & sweet
It nearly swept me off-a my feet.
And i'm back in the rain, oh, oh,
And you are on dry land.
You made it there somehow
You're a big girl now.

Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence,
He's singin' his song for me at his own expense.
And i'm just like that bird, oh, oh,
Singin' just for you.
I hope that you can hear,
Hear me singin' through these tears.

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame if all we've shared can't last.
I can change, i swear, oh, oh,
See what you can do.
I can make it through,
You can make it too.

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase,
You've known it all the time, i'm learnin' it these days.
Oh, i know where i can find you, oh, oh,
In somebody's room.
It's a price i have to pay
You're a big girl all the way.

A change in the weather is known to be extreme
But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream?
I'm going out of my mind, oh, oh,
With a pain that stops & starts
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart.
