Lyrics

In our younger days
We were so in love
And the thought of losing you
Was enough to make me cry
You're the one I want in my world
But I'm a woman now
I'm not just a girl

So won't please accept me, baby
As I am
Going straight ahead and on my own
Won't you please accept me, baby
As I am
I'm not a girl anymore
I'm all grown up now

In another time
In some obscure place
We were lovers then and lovers we are
Some things don't change
All the seasons pass
And you're still around
But how much longer can we last
I'm down

So won't you please accept me, baby
As I am
Living straight ahead and on my own
Won't you please accept me, baby
As I am
I'm not a girl anymore
I'm all grown up now, baby

La, la, la

I'm not a girl anymore
I'm not a girl anymore
I'm not a girl anymore
I'm all grown up now
