  • I've never seen you look like this without a reason
    Another promise fallen through
    Another season passes by you
    I never took the smile away from anybody's face
    And that's a desperate way to look
    For someone who is still a child

    In a big country dreams stay with you
    Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
    Stay alive, here we go

    I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
    But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in a desert
    But I can live and breathe
    And see the sun in wintertime

    In a big country dreams stay with you
    Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
    Stay alive

    In a big country dreams stay with you
    Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
    Stay alive

    So take that look out of here it doesn't fit you
    Because it's happened doesn't mean you've been discarded
    Pull up your head off the floor, come up screaming
    Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted
    I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
    But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered, see ya
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in a desert
    But I can live and breathe
    And see the sun in wintertime

    In a big country dreams stay with you
    Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
    Stay alive
    Ha, ha

    In a big country dreams stay with you
    Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
    Stay alive

    In a big country dreams stay with you
    Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
    Stay alive

  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesGreat song, hilarious video with it's theme of Suggs "falling in love" with a lamp-post! Classic Madness, they could always be relied on to put out a catchy song with a funny video, and this was no exception, even after over a decade out of the limelight!
