How You've Grown Lyrics

Artist: 10000 Maniacs
Album: Our Time In Eden

"My, how you've grown."
I remember that phrase from my childhood days too.
"Just wait and see."
I remember those words and how they chided me,
when patient was the hardest thing to be.
Because we can't make up for the time that we've lost,
I must let these memories provide.
No little girl can stop her world to wait for me.
I should have known.
At your age, in a string of days
the year is gone.
But in that space of time,
it takes so long.
Because we can't make up for the time
that we've lost,
I must let those memories provide.
No little girl can stop her world to wait for me.
Every time we say goodbye
you're frozen in my mind
as the child that you never will be,
you never will be again.
I'll never be more to you
than a stranger could be.
Every time we say goodbye
you're frozen in my mind as a child that
you never will be, will be again.

I divorced in 1992 and was forced to no longer see my 2 year old daughter on a daily basis. This song was deeply moving to me and still is. Natalie carried me thru with all of her songs. There is not a better songstress.

This song is soo sad. I can definitely relate to it though. I'm going in to eighth grade but this song is on my kindergarten memories cd which is how I relate to it. :(
