"Big" as written by Kimberley Kenneth Benzie, Robert Maric, Stewart Alexander Hill, Forrester Savell and Luke Williams....
It's alright
It's worth it
These little pieces I can't seem to align
I need change
And I just don't feel I was born to walk in a line

I've been waiting to take my chances
I can't live for the lie
I'll keep chasing
Cause I can feel something's gonna change

The faster that we go round
The tighter I'm holding
I know that we fall down

You and I are the same thing
Simple yet we complicate the design
It's working but I just feel there's a faster way to arrive

I can taste it
And I want answers
I can't live for the lie
I'll keep chasing
Cause I can feel something's gonna change

The faster that we go round
The tighter I'm holding
I know that we fall down
Part of me is still silently hoping
Hold on, soon we'll be gone
You will follow me one day
In time, our time

Are you ever big enough?
Is it easier in time?
Turn the page and hurry up
Should I lead or stay in line?
Is it all for the reward?
Will it really be alright?
Please don't leave me behind

Hold on, soon we'll be gone
You will follow me one day
In time, when we divide
And you walk further than me
Somehow I feel that the one last piece will align
(I can feel) something's gonna change
(I can feel) something's gonna change

    General CommentThanks for the effort anyway 60mph.. this is a great song! I feel it's about some type of momentous occurrence which has rocked the foundation of the singer's life.. and has left him with the choice to change and adapt, in an effort to ultimately succeed or risk forever "walking in line", and suffering a pointless existance.

    My InterpretationBeautiful song, I think this song is about the singer or the listeners life (how ever you want to interperate it) meeting someone new or someone they have been freinds with for a while and getting closer to them then finding reasons as to why they are to hold on to them, and subsequently taking a risk with them to be with them. It leaves him with a choice to be with this girl or to awalk away, but apart of him cant walk away, while she wants to be with him, but is unsure because of her past faults/experiences.

    You and I are the same thing
    Simple yet we complicate the design
    It's working but I just feel there's a faster way to arrive


    I think this part can be looked at that they are both the same type of people yet very complicated in who they are and why they are that way , but somehow they match together and there is that rush to rush things so they can ne complete with each other

    I can taste it
    And I want answers
    I can't live for the lie
    I'll keep chasing
    Cause I can feel something's gonna change

    - I guess this part can be looked at, that he/she can feel and taste the emotion but does not want to live a lie, so they keep chasing for the truth from eachother and hopefully things will change and it will work out.


    Hold on, soon we'll be gone
    You will follow me one day
    In time, when we divide
    And you walk further than me
    Somehow I feel that the one last piece will align

    - This part can be interpreted as they should both hold on and fight for what they have and in time it wil be worth it as it will all fall together and align, hence in time.



    This is just a my interpretation from my standpoint however the song can be looked at different angles, more away from relationships and more into maybe a event which changed his life and he is relating to an event.

    thanks

    General CommentGaaah Kim's voice is so hard to interpret sometimes. I tried my best, though! I'm only confident about the last two paragraphs, I'm pretty sure they're close to 100% correct. As for the rest, help is much appreciated! Unless of course DLC decide to give us the lyrics on Project Dead Letter...

    Lyric CorrectionOk, so DLC gave us the official lyrics and nobody has to know what a crappy job I did to begin with :P
