Lyrics

Under The Big Light

Written By: Raúl Vargas

UNDER THE BIG LIGHT
-----------------------------

Another day under the big light
Here I’ m searching for a smile
The picture may not look so good the whole time
But I won’ t say NO to this ride

I got a question for the lady up there ( hey miss moon !!! )
How come you always look so good ?
They say I’ m looking at you with good eyes
And I know that you are on my side

Join this walk of life there is so much to see
Walk walk walk walk every thing is here don’t you know
Don’t sit and wait for every single little thing you want for too long no no no
Well is never too late like they say, unless you are gone

Suddenly the world turns up side down
A tree falls into a cloud
The sun waters the fields
While the wind gets thick and green
I keep walking, should I run?
Maybe this is the sign
When our madness bails and dies
When no power rules no land
When all men become just one

Join this walk of life there is so much to see
Walk walk walk walk every thing is here don’t you know
Don’t sit and wait for every single little thing you want for too long no no no
Well is never too late like they say, unless you are gone

Join this walk of life there is so much to see
Walk walk walk walk every thing is here don’t you know
Don’t sit and wait for every single little thing you want for too long no no no
Well is never too late like they say, unless you are gone
