"In a Big Country (Big Country cover)" as written by William Stuart/brzezicki Adamson and Tony (gb)/watson Butler....
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

And in a big country, dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive

I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
But 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

And in a big country, dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive

And in a big country, dreams stay with you
Like a lover's 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�come up screaming
Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted
I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
But 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

And in a big country, dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive

And in a big country, dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive

    General CommentHmmm, not sure if I am going to like their new CD. I love Don't Wait, but this song isn't the upbeat Dashboard that I know.

    General Comment^^^ This isn't original Dash, nor is it going to be on the album. It's a cover song.

    I love this cover though, Chris sounds great singing it, and the guitar sounds awesome.

    General CommentI feel like this song sounds very Weezer-ish... But I like Weezer and I think that this Dashboard song is catchy.
