Great Big World
Lyrics and music c. Steve Waddington

Come on, it's time to give it a try
Time to change your state of mind
Open your eyes, take a good look around
You'll be surprized what you might find
There's a lot going on outside your door, outside your solitude
Places to go and people to see, a million things that you can do
In this Great Big World...

So caught up in your own little world
it seems tough to just survive
But compared to other places you could be
You're lucky just to be alive
The choice is yours to make a move with all the options you could take
You might improve your point of view and the difference it could make
To this Great Big World...

Sooner or later, you'll come around
Sooner or later, don't let it all fall down
Sooner or later, when it burns to the ground?

Take your head out of the sand
Don't pretend that you are blind
You can't ignore what's going on
Or it will get you from behind
And try to see the other side, that'll do for a start
Be resolved to get involved because you've got to be a part
Of this Great Big World...
