She's a wildflower, wild curly headed girl
Loves skippin’ rocks, climbin’ trees
She’d chase the boys and kick ‘em in the knees
She loves butterflies, in careless beauty they would fly
To the blue sky full of marshmallow clouds
 
But childhood went so fast and it’s time to be a big girl now
Her heart got thrown on the ground, kicked around
Where has the little girl gone
Innocence blown with the wind for the first time
She feels completely alone
 
All she needed to hear
Is you are worthy, you are pure
There is nothin’ you can do to lose this love
Pick up the pieces and move on
You’ll learn your value, you are strong
And you never lost your innocence
 
Sorrow overtaking hopelessness is always breaking
Her soul feels empty, she can’t get up in the morning light
Hurts her crying eyes
She puts on some make up and does her best to play her part
In a world of men and tend
To her bleeding heart again
 
'Cause childhood went so fast and it’s time be a big girl now
Her heart’s been thrown on the ground, kicked around
Where have the yesterdays gone?
Innocence blown with the wind it’s not the first time
She feels completely alone
 
All she needed to hear
Is you are worthy, you are pure
There is nothin’ you can do to lose this love
Pick up the pieces and move on
You’ll learn your value, you are strong
And you never lost your innocence
 
You're alone, but you’re not broken
You’re beautiful, you can fly
If you just let go
 
All she needed to hear
Is you are worthy, you are pure
There is nothin’ you can do to lose this love
Pick up the pieces and move on
You’ll learn your value, you are strong
And you never lost your innocence
 
She's a wildflower, wild curly headed girl
Loves light of day and bein’ free free free
