Song Lyric Sunday 4/9/17 – In a Big Country

So a song about road trips and/or your favorite road trip song, huh? That is our topic for this week’s edition of Song Lyric Sunday. Fun topic for sure.

When I’m yearning for a road trip or a vacation, the words of this song come to mind. “You can’t stay here with every single hope you had shattered.” Yeah, that’s exactly what I feel. As such, this is the song I most associate with road trips personally and I’m always sure to blast it when pulling out of my driveway for a vacation. I might have shared this song on a previous prompt way back when, but it’s such a great song it’s worthy of a re-share (not to mention when I first shared this song it went largely unnoticed).

Here then is Big Country’s title song “In a Big Country”:

Shock

Come up screaming
Come up screaming
Ha

I’ve never seen you look like this without a reason
Another promise fallen through, another season passes by you

Shock

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 a 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

Shock, 1, 2

I’m not expecting to grow flowers in a 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

Ha

Shock
