When I was big I was bigger than a house
I was bigger than the house that my daddy built so high when I stood tall I was taller than the trees that grew up in the yard that sheltered we
but now I'm small so small like the nasty little thought that there maybe nothing left to give at all, and you're losing the ground that you've always had to break your fall

when my heart was large it was large enough to beat out a symphony complete
when my back was straight I could walk a thousand miles, well maybe just a while

but now the distance is small, so small just a single step or two then I'd have to lean on you or fall, I'd fall or reduce you to a crawl

daily by a little bit I start to shrink my clothes don't fit and I can't reach my door, the lock's up there in front of me but I can't seem to fit my key it's too high from the floor

when I was big I was bigger than a house
I was bigger than the house that my daddy built so high
when we were big, we were bigger than this land we could touch each other's hands across the sea but now we're small, so small
like the nasty little thought that there maybe nothing left to give at all and you're losing the ground that you've always had to break your fall so small just a single step or two then I'd have to lean on you or fall, I'd fall, I feel small, so small
(repeat 'til fade)
