Ron Pope

Ron Pope - Great Big World

rate me

She said goodbye to her parents' house

Kissed her Daddy while her mama cried

Boarded a train like a carousel

She hummed the song that the ice cream man played when he drove by

Oh my

My

My

She loves Ohio in the summertime

White picket fences offer no defenses

And the children laugh in the streets but that's not all she needs

Says, "There's a great big world out there and I wanna see it

There's a great big world out there and there's a place for me in it

Though I'll miss my mother and the friends I know

The light burns out if you wait too long

There's a great big world I see and it's waiting out there for me"

She hits the city with half a tank

In a car she bought from a ring she pawned

She spent the summer by happenstance

There was a boy who could read her thoughts with his deep brown eyes

Oh my

My

My

But when he'd drink he was a different kind

Though white picket fences shook her defenses

And children danced in her dreams

That's not all she needs

Says, "There's a great big world out there and I wanna see it

There's a great big world out there and there's a place for me in it

Though I'll miss my mother and the friends I know

The light burns out if you wait too long

There's a great big world I see and it's waiting out there for me"

I've never felt so alone

I've never felt so alive

I've never been so sure I could learn to fly

I've never felt so alone

I've never felt so alive

I've never been so sure I could learn to fly

Inside her wallet's a photograph

Of the place she's from and the ones she loves

But, "There's a great big world out there and I wanna see it

There's a great big world out there and there's a place for me in it

Though I'll miss my mother and the friends I know

The light burns out if you wait too long

There's a great big world I see and it's waiting out there for me"

I've never felt so alone

I've never felt so alive

I've never been so sure I could learn to fly

I've never felt so alone

I've never felt so alive

I've never been so sure I could learn to fly
