Big Idea

Words and music copyright © Leon Chase 2006.

As performed on the album That’s My Shit! – Uncle Leon and the Alibis Live in Brooklyn

 

Well I had this big idea
that you and me could be
something good
Maybe even have a little fun

And I had this big idea
that maybe we were more than just the sum
of every stupid thing
we’ve ever done

And I tried in my own way
to give you everything
But I guess that everything just ain’t enough

And you let me believe
that we were more than just friends
Then like a beer can on a wooden fence
You set me up
just to shoot me down

Now there’s a hole in the middle of me
where my heart used to be
And you’re just another big idea
shot to hell

Well I had this big idea
that if I always tried to treat you right,
you’d realize
that my love for you was true

And I had this big idea
that when a woman says, “I love you”
it means just you
and not some other guy too

But I let my heart run wild
like a brain-damaged child
but I guess that it ran too fast
and fell

And you let me believe
that we were more than just friends
Then like a beer can on a wooden fence
You set me up
just to shoot me down

Now there’s a hole in the middle of me
where my heart used to be
And you’re just another big idea
shot to hell

Yeah, there’s a hole in the middle of me
where my heart used to be
And you’re just another big idea
shot to hell
