Big When I Was Little

Can't believe I'm leaving, got my boxes by the door
Sorting through my memories, cross-legged on the floor
My diaries and scrapbooks, oh, they seem to take me there
I was always Posh Spice and you wore zigzags in your hair

Would you know me, know me, know me
If you saw me, saw me, saw me?
Nothing but hopes and living the moment
Where we were meant to be

Oh, those days don't seem so far
When I'm flicking through my old Polaroid photographs
Me and you
You always made me laugh
Dancing to cassette tape singles
That was big when I was little
Big when I was little
Big when I was little
Just like Malcolm in the middle
That was big when I was little

Oh this box is haunting me, I can't throw it away
School reports and birthday cards feels like yesterday
Clip on diamantes make me think of Friday nights
Leaving after class with me on the back of your bike

Would you know me, know me, know me
If you saw me, saw me, saw me?
Nothing but hopes and living the moment
Where we were meant to be, yeah

Oh, those days don't seem so far
When I'm flicking through my old Polaroid photographs
Me and you
You always made me laugh
Dancing to cassette tape singles
That was big when I was little
Big when I was little
Big when I was little
Just like Malcolm in the middle
That was big when I was little
Big when I was little
Big when I was little
Like Nirvana and Lauryn Hill
They were big when I was little

Super Nintendo and club nights at Bagley's
Smirnoff Ice, open mic nights and Acne
Wonder where you ended up
Cause I just can't thank you enough
Avirex Jackets and Strawberry Ribena
Nike TN's, dreams of Wembley Arena

Oh, those days don't seem so far
When I'm flicking through my old Polaroid photographs
Me and you
You always made me laugh
Dancing to cassette tape singles
That was big when I was little
Big when I was little
Big when I was little
Just like Malcolm in the middle
That was big when I was little
Big when I was little
Big when I was little
Like Nirvana and Lauryn Hill
They were big when I was little
