Big Girls Don't Cry

Dear Me,

Nyahaha. I didn't know its title then. I kept on hearing it everywhere (neighbor's blasting radio, on tv and whenever I leave the house to do some errands in Makati). I almost had the urge one time to stop someone in his/her tracks to inquire whether he/she knows the song. Such an embarassing impulse. Poof.

Big Girls Don't Cry (Dutchess 2006 album) is a sad, break-up song. The lyrics bespeaks of melancholy over a broken love, of letting go, of independence and of hope for the future.

I kinda love this particular song by
Fergie. It's not my current state of heart and mind but I simply like the way her voice caresses the words.

Da Da Da Da
The smell of your skin lingers on me now
You're probably on your flight back to your home town
I need some shelter of my own protection baby
To be with myself and center, clarity
Peace, Serenity

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightenin' out to do
And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I've got to get a move on with my life
It's time to be a big girl now
And big girls don't cry
Don't cry
Don't cry
Don't cry

The path that I'm walking
I must go alone
I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full grown, full grown
Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay


Like the little school mate in the school yard
We'll play jacks and uno cards
I'll be your best friend and you'll be my Valentine
Yes you can hold my hand if you want to
'Cause I want to hold yours too
We'll be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds
But it's time for me to go home
It's getting late, dark outside
I need to be with myself and center, clarity
Peace, Serenity


La Da Da Da Da Da

Here's the video from YouTube.


  1. Tumaas ang respeto ko kay Fergie dahil sa song na to. Hehe. Hindi ko nga alam na siya pala ang kumanta nung una eh.

  2. [pulsar] - same here. I didn't know it was Fergie who sang it and believe me, who wouldn't? Her 'reputation' wasn't so....(fill the blanks). =)


It is always refreshing to know what is in your mind. Thanks!
