Five years old,
An average carefree little girl,
Playing house with Charlotte
in our own world,

She asked me who i want to be,
I said, "a girl who is 16",
And so began the years
of waiting patiently,

Playing outside
With Alana in a tree,
Pretending to be 2 beautiful fairies,

I didn't have to think really,
when Alana turned and said to me,
What age would you, "Sparkles", like to be?

I'd like to be 16 forever,
I'd like to feel my spirit rise,
Pretty dress and shoes,
Makeup and Hairdos,
and dancing oh so endlessly...

Football games,
Very pretty names,
to drive the streets of town,

Shopping malls,
swimming pools,
So good we have no need for rules,

Flying away,
seeking higher ground...

Some mornings i feel a little sad,
Lying in bed,
realizing someday all this has to end,

Thinking back,
Flashing ahead,
Taking for granted everything i have,
Only my best friends could ever understand...

I want to be 16 forever,
I want to feel my spirit rise,
Pretty dress and shoes,
Makeup and hairdos,
Dancing oh so endlessly...

I'll always be me,
Who else would i be...
But no longer will i be 16,
or dancing oh so endlessly...
