World's Too Big

© Annie Griffith


There’s an easy touch on strings,
6 and 10 together.
Two easy lilting voices,
Live in my heart forever.
I wish my arms could reach where only my heart could dare.
And it is in my arms you’d be, if I could wish you there.

I’ll play the tapes again,
They’re worn and getting thin.
But your voices lives there friends,
So I’ll smile as the song begins,
But the smile will shift to tears, I wish you were here once more.
Wish I could sail the seas, set my foot upon your shore.

I wish I’d wings to fly, or a galleon tall and fair,
I’d fly like the swiftest bird, or sail like a brave corsair,
But this worlds too big to love someone so far away,
This world’s too big, oh it’s too big… Tom and Dave.
Just too big...
