I've got this ego
that got knocked down
Walking real slow, staring at the ground
A million loners wake up every day
My life's not over, just twisted out of place

I stop in my tracks
to watch the clouds get tossed around
and suddenly that's all I can think about.

CHORUS
I got the big sky to hold me
I got my whole life unfolding
There's beauty in solitude
so don't tell me that I need you
I'm on the outside of being lonely
I've the whole sky to hold me

I take the train home almost every night
I talk to strangers, just feel alive
So I asked this lady, when I was feeling bold:
Am I going crazy or is this just getting old?
Half-smiling, she told me she misses being young
When every moment just drips with passion
She said, 'Girl, let yourself cry,
get rid of your fear of feeling lost
Don't calculate the cost."

CHORUS

Some time my spirit's stretched so far
you can see right through it to my beating heart
It's just a growing pain
Just when I think I'm going to shrivel up
I can feel the blood running through my veins
Oh, that'll never change

I've got the whole sky to hold me
temporarily lonely
I defeated the solitude, oh
just to find that I don't need you...

I got the big sky to hold me
I got my whole life unfolding
There's beauty in solitude
So I'm standing strong and new
I'm on the oustide of being lonely
I've got the whole sky to hold me

    General CommentSorry. I only had this song because it came with my computer and I couldn't find the lyrics online anywhere, so I tried to figure out what it was saying just listening. I think they have the right ones online now, I'll edit it.
