Big When I Was Little

Charted: 12
  • Can't believe I'm leaving
    Got my boxes by the door
    Sorting through my memories
    Cross legged on the floor

    My diaries and scrapbooks, oh
    They seem to take me there
    I was always posh spice and you wore zigzags in your hair

    Would you know, know
    Know me
    If you saw me
    Saw me, saw me
    Nothing but hopes and living the moment
    Where we were meant to be
    Ooooohhhh
    Those days don't seem so far
    When I'm flicking trough my old Polaroid
    Photographs
    Me and yoooouuuuuu
    You always made me laugh
    Dancing to cassette tape singles
    That was big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Jut like Malcom in the middle
    That was big when I was little

    Oh this box is haunting me
    I can't throw it away
    School reports and birthdays cards
    Feels like yesterday
    Clip on diamantes
    Makes me think of Friday nights
    Leaving after class with me on the back of your bike

    Would you know me, know me
    Know me
    If you saw me
    Saw me, saw me
    Nothing but hopes and living the moment
    Where we were meant to be
    Ooooohhhh
    Those days don't seem so far
    When I'm flicking trough my old Polaroid
    Photographs
    Me and yoooouuuuuu
    You always made me laugh
    Dancing to cassette tape singles
    That was big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Jut like Malcolm in the middle
    That was big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Like Nirvana and Lauryn Hill
    They were big when I was little

    Super nitendo
    And club nights at Bagleys
    Smirnoff ice
    Open mic nights and Acne wonder where you ended up
    'Cause I just can't thank you enough
    Avirex jackets and strawberry ribena
    Nike tn's dreams of Wembley arena

    Ooooohhhh
    Those days don't seem so far
    When I'm flicking through my old Polaroid
    Photographs
    Me and yoooouuuuuu
    You always made me laugh
    Dancing to cassette tape singles
    That was big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Jut like Malcolm in the middle
    That was big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Big when I was little
    Jut like Nirvana and Lauryn Hill
    They were big when I was little Writer/s: Ervan F. Coleman, Eliza Sophie Caird, Wayne Anthony Hector, Steve Robson
