This girl walked in dreams, Playing in a world of her own.
This girl was a child, Existing in a playground of stone.
Then, one night her world was changed; Her life and
dreams were rearranged.
She would never be the same again.
This Girl is a Woman Now; She’s learned how to live.
This Girl is a Woman Now. She’s found out what its all about
And she’s learnin’, learnin’ to live.
This girl tasted love, as tender as the gentle dawn.
She cried a single tear, A teardrop that was sweet and warm.
Our hearts told us we were right, And on that sweet velvet night.
A child had died, a woman had been born.
