What a thing to be a witness to the sunshine What a dream to just be walking on the ground What a time to live among the ashen remnants of our love It came before and I'm still looking for that now
It took centuries to build these twisted cities It took seconds to reduce them down to dust And all the tour guide could say was "Take your pictures folks it's late, try your best please to remember what was done."
Don't look so forlorn Don't you look so scared Don't get so upset This world was never fair
But there are hundreds of ways To get through the days There are hundreds of ways Now you just find one
I used to think that time was of the essence Now I just wish I could get some sleep All this strange parade of sounds the city makes when I lay down Little explosions that set fire to my dreams
Sometimes I get mistaken for this actor And I guess that I can see it from the side Maybe no one really seems to be the person that they mean to be I hope I am forgotten when I die
Don't contradict me Don't make me cross the line If you feel threatened It's only 'cause I might
But there are hundreds of ways To get through the days There are hundreds of ways To get through the day Yes, there are hundreds of ways So you best find one
All my hero's they're all talk Running in circles Some stop watch some cast Love was the message. Full stop
We ramble on and on We ramble on and on
I stole all the rhinestones out of Carolina Sold them out in Bakersfield for cash The bandshell got a band sounds like an arcade in Japan Blew all my quarters trying to get that feeling back
Now any sucker can turn boredom into violence A sociopath riding on a bus His irises are black from his novelty contacts He looks around but he can't see the rest of us
In my sunglasses don't mind the blinding light Yeah it's getting dark bro, but I've always loved the night
But there are hundreds of ways To get through the day There are hundreds of ways To get through the day There are hundreds of ways To get through the day There are hundreds of ways To get through the day There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of ways To get through the day Just find one

"Big Love" is a showcase song for Lindsey Buckingham and the first single from Fleetwood Mac's 1987 album Tango In The Night, but he left the group soon after the album was released and the band didn't perform it live until he returned 10 years later.
