Little Me

Album: Salute (2013)
Charted: 14
  • She lives in the shadow of a lonely girl
    Voice so quiet you don't hear a word
    Always talking but she can't be heard

    You can see it there if you catch her eye
    I know she's brave but it's trapped inside
    Scared to talk but she don't know why

    Wish I knew back then
    What I know now
    Wish I could somehow
    Go back in time and maybe listen to my own advice

    I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out
    Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder
    Tell her she's beautiful, wonderful
    Everything she doesn't see

    You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out
    And know that right here, right now
    You can be beautiful, wonderful
    Anything you wanna be

    Little me

    Yeah you got a lot of time to act your age
    You cannot write a book from a single page
    Hands on the clock only turn one way

    (Yeah)

    Run too fast and risk it all
    Can't be afraid to take a fall
    Felt so big but you looked so small

    Wish I knew back then
    What I know now
    Wish I could somehow
    Go back in time and maybe listen to my own advice

    I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out
    Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder
    Tell her she's beautiful, wonderful
    Everything she doesn't see

    You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out
    And know that right here, right now
    You can be beautiful, wonderful
    Anything you wanna be, oh
    Little me

    Little me

    Tell you one thing I would say to her

    I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out
    Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder
    Tell her she's beautiful, wonderful
    Everything she doesn't see

    You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out
    And know that right here, right now
    You can be beautiful, wonderful
    Anything you wanna be (little me)

    I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out
    Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder
    Tell her she's beautiful, wonderful
    Everything she doesn't see

    You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out
    And know that right here, right now
    You can be beautiful, wonderful
    Anything you wanna be

    I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out
    Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder
    Tell her she's beautiful, wonderful
    Everything she doesn't see

    You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out
    And know that right here, right now
    You can be beautiful, wonderful
    Anything you wanna be
