    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
