1Bigger Than Anywhere Else

.
Bigger than Anywhere Else

There’s a green field beneath a blue sky
There are blue flowers in between reaching up high
And your father bends down, as he explains
That the flax is so good on account of the rains

And it’s years of knowing
And its years of growing
It is caught in the photo I hold in my hand
It takes me back to the field where he stands

Where the skies are bigger than anywhere else
And there is room enough for me
Where the skies are bigger than anywhere else
As far as the eye can see

It’s crowded out here, there are no empty spaces
There are too many buildings and too many faces
Too many things that are set in their ways
Too many things that fill up my days

And it’s years of choices,
And it’s years of voices
That have taken me here to where things never change
Not like the clouds that roll in on a range

Chorus

The cold of the winter, the dry of the fall
The first wind of spring, I miss them all
But what I miss, when I feel alone
Is the one thing that makes me feel like I’ve come home

It’s the skies are bigger than anywhere else
And there’s room enough for me
Where the skies are bigger than anywhere else
As far as the eye can see.

Where the skies are bigger than anywhere else
As far as the eye can see.

 

2 Mother’s Prayer

.
Let the wind blow, let the rain come down
I am free from harm
And I watch as the clouds rush by
With my baby asleep in my arms

And I feel tied to every mother that I see
I can’t watch the war reports on TV
And if I had all the money in this world
I’d buy every gun and throw it into the sea

Chorus

And I feel tied to every mother who has hunger in her eyes
Who must comfort when there’s not enough to eat
Tell me where has the plenty gone,
And tell me what in the world is more important than these

Chorus

And I don’t want to hear about religions and boundaries
I don’t want to hear about the ones who hoard their gold
I don’t want to hear about the might and the majesty
Do the ones who make this madness have no babies to hold?

Chorus

3 Relax

.

Relax, what’s your hurry
Why don’t you slow down
Relax, what’s your worry,
The world will still keep goin’ round

Take a little break, take a little time
The way that you’re living is a crime
You’re in the rat race, you want to be a winner
But you’re treating your life like a TV dinner

If you take a break the world won’t end
You’re the youngest now that you’ll ever be again

Chorus

You get yourself in a mighty big knot
Thinking of the things that you haven’t got
You’re working so hard, you’re running so fast
Well the life that you’re living won’t last

You haven’t had the chance to take a walk in a while
You are a slave to your life style

Chorus

What will you remember when it’s all said and done
Life must be tasted
What will you remember when it’s all said and done
You’ll think of all the time that you should have wasted

Chorus
