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

CHORUS: 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
