  • Big sky looked down on, all the people looking up at the big sky
    Everybody pushing one another around
    Big sky feels sad when he sees the children scream and cry
    But the big sky's too big to let it get him down

    Big sky too big to cry
    Big sky to high to see
    People like you and me

    One day we will be free, we won't care, just you see
    Till that day can be, don't let it get you down
    When I feel that the world is too much for me
    I think of the big sky and nothing matter much to me

    Big sky looked down on all the people who think they got problems
    They get depressed and they hold their head in their hands and cry
    People lift up their hands and they look up to the big sky
    But big sky is too big to sympathize

    Big sky's too occupied
    Though he would like to try
    And he feels bad inside
    Big sky's too big to cry

    One day well be free.
    We won't care, just you wait and see
    Till that day can't be, don't let it get you down
    When I feel that the world is too much for me
    I think of the big sky and nothing matters much to me
