Little Girl

RICHARD DRY: I wrote this song when Dakota was about 3 years old. I talk about the year I had Dakota and my mom died, and the struggle of balancing the strong amount of sadness and happiness, and beginnings and endings.

 

The melody in voice, lyrics, guitar chords, guitar soloing, and percussion were played and written by Richard Dry. The backup vocals was written and played by Dakota Dry. Base was written and played by David Brooks.

 

You came into my life like a butterfly
So fragile sitting in my hands
Not long after that my mother died
If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t know who I am

I know that I’m not the perfect man
But I swear I’m doing all I can
And if you’d give me just a little more time
I hope to show you that I can be fine
And that I
Can be happy

How will you remember me little girl
Stayin’ up late and sleepin’ ‘til ten
How will I remember you little girl
The perfect moments slippin’ through my hands

I know that I’m not the perfect man
But I swear I’m doing all I can
And if you’d give me just a little more time
I hope to show you that I can be fine
And that I
Can be happy

Sittin’ on the road bidding my time
the events of my life are the cars drivin’ by
I turn for a moment and the moment’s past
Hold on to these moments like they’re your last

It’s starting to happen for me little girl
Playing ducks and frogs in the bath
In our garden golden poppies unfurl
You do a dance and it makes me laugh

I know that I’m not the perfect man
But I swear I’m doing all I can
And if you’d give me just a little more time
I hope to show you that I can be fine
And that I
Am happy
