Big Time

Album: Broken Arrow (1996)
  • Gonna leave the pain behind
    Gonna leave the fools in line
    Gonna take the magic potion
    Gettin' in an old black car
    Gonna take a ride so far
    To the land of sun tan lotion
    Gonna take it state by state
    Til I hit the golden gate
    Get my feet wet in the ocean

    I'm still living in the dream we had
    For me it's not over

    Walkin on the bridge on day
    Lookin out across the bay
    I saw a rippling in the water
    Once a big ship had passed
    I borrowed a traveler's glass
    And focused on the ocean's daughter
    Kind of like a wave confused
    Dancing in the sunset hews
    She waved to me and called me over

    I'm still living in the dream we had
    For me it's not over

    Talkin' bout a friend of mine
    Talkin' bout a gold mine
    Richest vein in any mountain
    Talkin' bout the enemy
    Inside of me
    Talkin' bout that youthful fountain
    Talkin' bout you and me
    Talkin' bout eternity
    Talkin' bout the big time

    I'm still living in the dream we had
    For me it's not over Writer/s: Neil Young
