"So Small" as written by Luke Robert Laird, Hillary Lee Lindsey and Carrie Underwood....
Yeah, yeah

What you got if you ain't got love
The kind that you just want to give away
It's okay to open up
Go ahead and let the light shine through
I know it's hard on a rainy day
You wanna shut the world out and just be left alone
But don't run out on your faith

'Cause sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
Is just a grain of sand
And what you've been out there searching for forever
Is in your hands
And when you figure out love is all that matters after all
It sure makes everything else seem so small

It's so easy to get lost inside
A problem that seems so big at the time
It's like a river that's so wide it swallows you whole
While you're sitting around thinking about what you can't change
And worrying about all the wrong things
Time's flying by, moving so fast
You better make it count 'cause you can't get it back

Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
Is just a grain of sand
And what you've been out there searching for forever
Is in your hands
Oh, and when you figure out love is all that matters after all
It sure makes everything else seem
So small, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
Is just a grain of sand
And what you've been out there searching for forever
Is in your hands
And then you figure out love is all that matters after all
It sure makes everything else
Oh, it sure makes everything else seem
So small

Yeah, yeah

    General CommentGoing to disagree with you, Dave. This song is about how people worry about all of these huge things and go out to try and find this amazing life, when in reality they have everything need right in front of them, because love and your family is all that really matters and everything else is "so small" and insignificant in comparison.

    General Commentya what is dave talkin about....

    this song is about worring about the small things and when you actually see that love is what is really important all the problems arent as big as they seemed at first.

    i love the line.. "You better make it count cause you can't get it back" this is so true... you cant spend all your time worrying about the small stuff because you will miss out on what really matters and you will never get those moments back

    great song to sing along to... gives you the bittersweet feeling

    General CommentBasically what Carrie is saying, is that her Uncle never gave her the love that she needed. When her mother neglected her at age nine, she felt unloved. Her father was a great man, and he worked hard hours on the farm. He couldn’t bend the rules and spend more time with her. They would soon need a lot more money to survive. The Uncle was at the house a lot, and never once told her that he loved her. At so, she felt “So Small”.

    General CommentI really like this song - It's very true. I like the line that says "sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
    Is just a grain of sand" - I feel that way all the time. You look back onto hard times and realise they weren't that hard!

    General Commenti have no clue what this songmeans.
    but it makes me feel good when im crying
    or feeling sad in anyway
    and i love the part "I know it's hard on a rainy day
    You wanna shut the world out and just be left alone
    But don't run out on your faith"

    (:
