In a Big Country

Big Country


I never saw you look like this without a reason

Another promise fallen through,

another season passes by you

I never took the smile away from anybody's face

And that's a desperate way to look for someone who is still a child


In a big country dreams stay with you

Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside

Stay alive I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert

But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime


So take that look out of here, it doesn't fit you

Because it's happened doesn't mean you've been discarded

Pull up your head off the floor, come up screaming

Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted

I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered

But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered
