In A Big Country Big Country / The Crossing (come up screaming) (come up screaming) I've never seen you look like this Without a reason Another promise fallen through Another season passes by you 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 lovers voice fires the mountainside Stay Alive I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered You can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert But I can live and breathe And see the sun in wintertime In a big country dreams stay with you Like a lovers 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 and come up screaming Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered You can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered
