As Big As Love


Lyrics from a song by a songwriter named Mark Davis:


I'm thinking about the big world
It's shape leaves a shadow on my brain
A big shadow of a place that I can not understand
With its promises of pleasure and pain
Shall I run, shall I move
Shall I watch it all from here
Shall I laugh at myself for crying
Shall I listen to the lips whispering in my ear
No shadow is as big as love

A child threw a smile in my direction
It conjured up a picture in my brain
Of a flame that never dies
A fire that only burns
The big prison doors that jail my innocence
Shall I knock, shall I dig
Shall I start a fire in here?
Shall I laugh at myself for trying
Just listen to the lips whispering in my ear
No prison is as big as love

No doubt, no pain
No shadow on my brain
No distance is as big as love
Not as big as this
