Big Enough

Album: Past The Edges (1998)
  • None of us knows and that makes it a mystery
    If life is a comedy, then why all the tragedy
    Three-and-a-half pounds of brain try to figure out
    What this world is all about
    And is there an eternity, is there an eternity?

    God if you're there I wish you'd show me
    And God if You care then I need You to know me
    I hope You don't mind me askin? the questions
    But I figure you're big enough
    I figure you're big enough

    Lying on pillows we're haunted and half-awake
    Does anyone hear us pray, If I die before I wake
    Then the morning comes and the mirror?s the other place
    Where we wrestle face to face with the image of Deity
    The image of Deity

    God if you're there I wish you'd show me
    And God if You care then I need You to know me
    I hope You don't mind me askin? the questions
    But I figure you're big enough
    I figure you're big enough

    When I imagine the size of the universe
    And I wonder what's out past the edges
    Then I discover inside me a space as big
    And believe that I'm meant to be
    Filled up with more than just questions

    So, God if you're there I wish you'd show me
    And God if You care then I need You to know me
    I hope You don't mind me askin? the questions
    But I figure you're big enough
    I figure you're big enough
    ?Cause I am not big enough
