about

"A Girl Grows Up" is the only track on the album that was written in the U.S.A. This is one of the first songs that Allison wrote many moons ago and one of the first songs that Claire and Allison ever sang together.

lyrics

A blooming flower
Fills the room
Thanks to long shadows
Cast by late afternoon

Rising high like a skyscraper
But easy as a laugh
This girl she grows and grows
Up, up, up

I’ll stretch my hands, let me know if you can come
I’d love to have you dancing close

A blooming flower
Fills the room
Thanks to long shadows
Cast by late afternoon

Rising high like a skyscraper
But easy as a laugh
This girl she grows and grows
Up, up, up

Did you notice how the trees keep time?
Come on let’s not waste it
Stretch, stretch, up! Touch!

A blooming flower
Fills the room
Thanks to long shadows
Cast by late afternoon

Rising high like a skyscraper
But easy as a laugh
This girl she grows and grows
Up, up, up

Oh...
