Big City Dreams
Verse 1
Big city dreams, go floating away
Down the river to somewhere else
Got no boat, got no money
This flood has taken my last hope

Chorus
‘Cause I’ve burned all of my bridges
Left my liver down there in stitches
And I feel like heading back down to the harbor
Get my mind back on cooking
Maybe a job down in the city
I bet it will be better this time around on the line
Verse 2
Last time that I checked, my stock had leveled off
Maybe it’s time that I sell
Thought to myself, That I would go try another town
Bring my song and a story to tell
Chorus
That I burned all of my bridges
And left my liver down in stitches
And I lied to all of my very best friends
Now my days have all dissolved
Into clouds in high winds
And by the time I get back down to the people who love me
They say that it is all worth another try
You just got to stand in truth on this earth
And I know you’re going to find it out
You are going to find yourself

Bridge
Cause in the pride we all must come clean
Verse 3
I heard it somewhere before
Pretty sure my Grandma she told me 
She said, “Son, it’s people you need in this life,
You’ve got to have faith
In knowing that you will come out on top
But be patient and in one of your days

Chorus
When you have burned all of your bridges
And left your liver down in stitches
And feel yourself heading down the darkest alley
Know that there is light up ahead
Just take my hand instead
And we’ll find all the love that you need boy
All the love in a family
Bridge
And you’re gonna fly, from the ground on up child
