Big Day

Big day
It won't be too long
And now I don't feel anything
Are you still there at my side--?

Big flash
And I hit the ground
And now I can't see anyone
Are you still there at my side--?

He used to hold my head in his arms
Now someone else is keepin' us warm
It shouldn't be that long
I don't hate anyone
Anymore ...

Sinking, falling
Don't let it send you down
Are you wasted; are you dying?
God's at work
I'm waiting to come around
Waitin' naked for a sign

It shouldn't be that long
I don't hate anyone
Anymore ...

Anymore ...

One day ...
You and I ...
Reach out too high
Someday ...
We'll all be there

Big day
It won't be too long
And now I don't need anyone
I'm waiting here for my guide

Big sun to take me away
And now I don't hate anything
There's someone else at my side

He used to hold my head in his arms
Now someone else is keeping us warm
It shouldn't be that long
I don't hate anyone
Anymore ...
Anymore ...
Anymore ...
Anymore ...

Trip hop at its very best.
This one is dark, sad, and sexy,
all at once.
I can't listen to it enough.
