"Bigger" as written by Max Martin, Johan Karl Schuster and Tiffany Amber....
First off, I can't keep a promise
I'm no one to count on at all
Add on that I'm a coward
Too scared to return your calls

But you don't care
You keep sticking around
While I'm acting a clown
You're bigger
(Lalala)
'Cause you're still here
Your feet stuck to the ground
Despite how silly it sounds
You're bigger than me
(Lalala)

It's known that I'm a liar
Often I'm blacker than white
Add on my uncanny ego
No one's as humbled like I

But you don't care
You keep sticking around
While I'm acting a clown
You're bigger
(Lalala)
'Cause you're still here
Your feet stuck to the ground
Despite how silly it sounds
You're bigger than me
(Lalala)

All the messed up things I do
Yeah I swear I make them up to you
Before you're going heaven knows
Just let me make it better
I'll try to measure up
I'll try to measure up to you

I'm making up to you

But you don't care
You keep sticking around
While I'm acting a clown
You're bigger than me
(Lalala)
'Cause you're still here
Your feet stuck to the ground
Despite how silly it sounds
You're bigger than me
(Lalala)
Just bigger than me

    General CommentI don't mean to be rude, but these lyrics are wrong! This song means a lot to me and I would like it to be corrected please! I put in for a new version but I was ignored. So here it is:

    First off, I can't keep a promise. I'm no one to count on at all. Add on, that I'm a coward, too scared to return your call.

    Chorus: But you don't care. You keep sticking around while I'm acting a clown. You're bigger. Cause you're still here, your feet stuck to the ground. Despite how silly it sounds, you're bigger than me.

    It's known that I'm a liar, often the blacker than white. Add on my uncanny ego. No one's less humbled than I.

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Bridge: All the messed up things I do, yeah I swear I'll make 'em up to you. Before you go and have enough, just let me make it better. I'll try and measure up, I'll try and measure up to you. Oh yeah. I'll make 'em up to you. Oh yeah!!!

    (Repeat Chorus)

    General Commentbeautiful song. i love it.

    no one's posted a meaning yet >.> well MrMaxVC posted a meaning of uncanny. but i mean of the song.

    i think, when he says bigger, he means more grown up, more mature, or at least knows what they want in life and will do whatever it takes to get it or something along those lines. basically it's an "ok, you're better, more mature and whatnot than me. yet you stay for some reason. and i really have no problem with that."

    but maybe that's just me, who knows?

    but i agree, it's uncanny ego. of course by the time i'm posting it's already been fixed.
