Big Man
Boy & Bear Lyrics


Well I bit on my lip, and I kicked at my toes
No, I don't need your lecture cause your lecture won't show
That you told me so I told you so
But I would have managed, I would have been fine
I'd do it myself and I'd do it just my way,
I'm a big man for thinking just so.

But somebody told me that your mother was born
Wa-wa-wandering woman with a spirit so sworn of the riverside
And it never surprised me but it meant that my love was immobilized
Well, it meant that my love was immobilized
Cause when it comes, it comes when it does.

But you came in the middle and you fell in my hands
Oh a, wonderful woman and an average man.
See that makes me the lucky man
I won't be deserving, but I won't be denied
See, I fell in this position, I will still teach my kids pride
Because failure's a part of it all
And if failure don't hurt then failure don't work at all

But somebody told me that your nephew was born
Oh, a beautiful baby, so smart and so sure of his little self
And in a wonderful way he was making me feel so small
Was making me feel so small, was making me feel so small.
And I don't think I've felt this before.

In all the reasons to come, well they override my body and,
I point to the sun, cause where it's warm is where the wilderness grows
And it grows, and it grows 'til it all becomes nothing
And nothing is left as you know.

(We walked it for a thousand years, with broken eyes and salted ears
Complaining 'bout the weather like we ever had a choice.
Through all the noise and self abuse, you waited for your fill of truth
Oh I'm terrified I'll achieve nothing at all.)

A really great set of lyrics and yes, fabulous music. It's almost wonderful that there is a constant indifferent chatter in the background. When you're a band you just have to sing anyway.
