Fergie - Big Girls Don't Cry (Ферджи - Большие девочки не плачут)

1. What are the good points of being small? Going to school? How do you think, if a woman or man can be a child in her/his heart? Can a person be a child in his relationship with another?

The smell of your   lingers on me now
You’re probably on   flight back to your    
I need some   of my own protection, baby
To be with myself and center, clarity, peace, serenity

I hope you  , I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It’s  , myself and I
We’ve got some straightening out to do
And I’m gonna   you, like a
Child misses their blanket
But I’ve got to get a   on with my life
It’s time to be a big   now
And big girls don’t cry

The path that I’m  
I must   alone
I must take the baby   till I’m full grown, full grown
Fairy tales don’t always have a happy  , do they
And I foresee the   ahead if I stay

ahead [ə’hed] – вперед


Like the little   mate
In the school yard
We’ll play jacks and Uno cards
I’ll be your best   and you’ll be mine Valentine
Yes you can   my   if you want to
Cause I want to hold yours too
We’ll be playmates and lovers and
Share our   worlds
But it’s time for me to go  
It’s getting late and dark  
I need to be with   and center, clarity
 , serenity
