Big Country In a Big Country

I've never seen 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 thought that pain and truth
Were things that really mattered
But you can't stay here with
Every single hope you had shattered

I'm not expecting to grow
Flowers in the desert
But I can live and breathe
And see the sun in wintertime

In a big country
Dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice
Fires the mountainside
Stay alive

In a big country
Dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice
Fires the mountainside
Stay alive

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

I'm not expecting to grow
Flowers in the desert
But I can live and breathe
And see the sun in wintertime

In a big country
Dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice
Fires the mountainside
Stay alive

In a big country
Dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice
Fires the mountainside
Stay alive

In a big country
Dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice
Fires the mountainside
Stay alive
