Baby girl, love yourself first. Because one night
you'll find yourself awake at 3.00 a.m.and your
head will be pounding with the sound of every single last regret
and you will have tears streaming down your face
when you reach for your phone,
and your ears will only hear the beep of an answering machine
while sobs wreak havoc on your body.
Baby girl,you'll have to be the one to
walk yourself over to the sink for a glass of water,
and you'll be the one to wash your face,
and carry yourself back to bed.
Love yourself baby girl,
so that you'll have the strength to tell yourself nice things.
To remind yourself that,
you're beautiful and no, you aren't worthless
and yes,he no longer wants you but that just
means that you are meant for someone much greater
than he was.
hey Baby girl,when this night comes don't fret.
Remember,you are a strong one.
So take your trembling hands,and smooth back your lovely hair,
and pull those covers up to your chin,and remind yourself
that you're going to be okay. You're going to be okay.
You are going to be okay. Now try and get some sleep, baby girl.
Love yourself first my dear, so you'll know exactly what to say
at 3.00 a.m.
