Lyrics

[Verse 1] Dreaming, dreaming of a girl like me Hey what are you waiting for - feeding, feeding me I feel like I'm disappearing - getting smaller every day But I look in the mirror - I'm bigger in every way [Chorus] You aren't never going anywhere You aren't never going anywhere I ain't never going anywhere I ain't never going anywhere [Verse 2] I'm in heaven now - I can see you Richard Goodbye Hollywood, goodbye downey - hello Janis Hello Dennis, Elvis - and all my brand new friends I'm so glad you're all here with me, until the very end Dreaming, dreaming of how it's supposed to be But now this tunic's spinning - around my arms and knees I feel like I'm disappearing - getting smaller every day But when I open my mouth to sing - I'm bigger in every way [Chorus] [Bridge] Hey mom! look I'm up here - I finally made it I'm playing the drums again too Don't be sad - the band doesn't sound half bad And I remember mom, what you said You said honey - you look so under-fed [Verse 3] Another green salad, another ice tea There's a tunic in the closet waiting just for me I feel like I'm disappearing - getting smaller every day But I look in your eyes - and I'm bigger in every way [Chorus] [Verse 4] Goodbye Richard - gotta go now I'm finally on my own - but Dan's got a gig Keep the love lights glowing - little girl's got the blues I can still hear momma say: "honey don't let it go to your head"
