I Came Back As a Girl

They said I was no more
Said I’d been and gone
My time was all over
All over and done

My star had faded out
Out of time and out of space
But I returned
To restart the race

Swore it was the end of the world
But I came back
Back as a girl
Sugar and spice and all things nice

My hands were tiny
You said they were good for porn…not that I ever did any
My heart was big
My soul reborn

I tasted of pear drops and strawberry lip-gloss
My shoes were stacked up high
I couldn’t read maps
But I would try I’d try…oh how I’d try

Swore it was the end of the world
But I came back
Back as a girl
Sugar and spice and all things nice

I could be devious
I could be serious
I could be cruel and I could be oh so imperious
Oh so mischievous

I shopped until I dropped
So easily I cried
At Sleepless in Seattle and the one about the virgin bride…yeah I loved that one

I grew my hair
I grew my nails I got a
Dolphin tattoo

No one believed me when I said
The real me is dead
They thought I’d lost my head…they thought I’d lost it

Swore it was the end of the world
But I came back
Back as a girl
Sugar and spice and all things nice

Back in extra time
Back in the firing line
Back on the town with Jeff and Dave
Were going to the pub and to the rave

I’m dancing my life away
Will it always be this way?

I don’t know
I just don’t know…I just don’t know

I came back as a girl
