you’re a big girl now lyrics – bob dylan

our conversation was short and sweet
it nearly swept me
off a my feet
and i’m back in the rain

oh, 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, 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
that all we’ve shared can’t last
and i can change, i swear

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

on, 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?
and i’m going out of my mind

oh, with a pain that stops and starts
like a corkscrew to my heart
ever since we’ve been apart

/ bob dylan lyrics
