A Great Big World Lyrics

Is There Anybody Out There? Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Rockstar

There's a girl in the backyard bangin' on her drum
Sittin' in a junk pile laughing at the sun
Singin' "ah ha ha, I just wanna be a rockstar"

There's a boy in the backseat singin' to the song
Playin' on the radio, knowing he's the one
Singin' "ah ha ha, I just wanna be a rockstar"

Singin' "ah ha ha, I was born to be a rockstar!"

There's a girl in the tree top looking at the stars
Waiting for a touchdown comin' in from Mars
Thinkin' "is there anybody out there?"

There's a boy thinking of here playin' his guitar
Searching for the answer buried in his heart
Singin' "ah, ha ha, is there anybody out there?"

Singin' "ah, ha ha, is there anybody out there"

If there's a meaning can you show me a sign
The more I look it just gets harder to find
The world is spinnin' and I wanna know why

And we're all getting older wishin' we were young
Hangin' on the memory of what we would become
Singin' "ah ha ha, I was born to be a rockstar"
Singin' "ah ha ha, I just wanna be a rockstar"
Singin' "ah ha ha, I was born to be a rockstar!"

If there's a meaning can you show me a sign
The more I look it just gets harder to find
The world is spinnin' and I wanna know why

And maybe we will never figure it out
I got a feelin' that's what life's all about
I'm learning anything is possible now

Take a ticket and get off the line

Land Of Opportunity

I'm sailing away, to a Land of Opportunity.
The sun will shine, and birds will sing there everyday
I'm sailing away, and I hope that you remember me.
It was fun, we had our run. Hip hip hooray!

You said 'hello', I loved you so,
just like in a movie scene.
I want you to know, I had to let go,
I'm falling in love again.

I'm running away, to a place where you won't bother me.
We won't talk for a while, we'll be okay.
And I'm changing my name to a word that's really hard to say.
It's no one's fault, I'm just too young, and you're insane.

I wasted my time, I missed all the signs,
and it ruined my holiday.
I want you to know, I had to let go,
I'm falling in love again

I just gotta believe there's something better.
I just gotta believe there's something more than you and me.
I've just gotta believe, I've just gotta believe.

You said 'hello', I loved you so,
I felt like a kid again.
I want you to know, I had to let go
I'm falling in love again.

I just gotta believe there's something better.
I just gotta believe there's something more than you and me.
I've just gotta believe, I've just gotta believe.

I'm sailing away to a Land of Opportunity.

Already Home

You say love is what you put into it
You say that I'm losing my will
Don't you know that you're all that I think about?
You make up a half of the whole

You say that it's hard to commit to it
You say that it's hard standing still
Don't you know that I spend all my nights
Counting backwards the days 'til I'm home?

If only New York wasn't so far away
I promise the city won't get in our way
When you're scared and alone,
Just know that I'm already home

I say that we're right in the heart of it
A love only we understand
I will bend every light in this city
And make sure they're shining on you

If only New York wasn't so far away
I promise the city won't get in our way
When you're scared and alone,
Just know that I'm already home

When life takes its own course
Sometimes we just don't get to choose
I'd rather be there next to you
Promise you'll wait for me, wait for me
Wait 'til I'm home

All I have is this feeling inside of me
The only thing I've ever known

If only New York wasn't so far away
I promise the city won't get in our way
When you're scared and alone,
Just know that I'm already home

If only New York wasn't so far away
I will be there every step of the way
When you're scared and alone,
Just know that I'm already home
Just know that I'm already home

I Really Want It

[Verse 1]
So tell me what are we living for?
I say we chuck inhibitions
And sell our souls to rock and roll
I need to know what I'm missing

So turn it up on the stereo
Somebody light the ignition
What the hell are you waiting for?
It's time to make a decision

(Nah-oooh)

[Chorus]
I'm feeling the world go round
It's spinning me upside down
I'm finally homeward bound
I'm not giving up
It's crawling under my skin
And I don't care if I sin

I really want it
I really want it
I really want it right now
I really want it right now

[Verse 2]
If there's a maker up above
Then why is nobody listening
You show me hate, and I'll show you love
It's not about your religion

We're always lookin' to someone else
Just take a look in the mirror
'Cause all you need is inside yourself
It couldn't be any clearer

(Nah-oooh)

[Chorus]
I'm feeling the world go round
It's spinning me upside down
I'm finally homeward bound
I'm not giving up
It's crawling under my skin
And I don't care if I sin

I really want it
I really want it
I really want it right now
I really want it right now

[Bridge]
The more we love, the more we learn
The more we love, the more we burn
The more we love

So tell me what are we livin' for
I say we chuck inhibitions
And sell our souls to rock n' roll
I need to know what I'm missin'

[Chorus]
I'm feeling the world go round
It's spinning me upside down
I'm finally homeward bound
I'm not giving up
It's crawling under my skin
And I don't care if I sin

I really want it
I really want it
I really want it right now
I really want it right now

Say Something

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'll be the one, if you want me to.
Anywhere I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I am feeling so small.
It was over my head
I know nothing at all.

And I will stumble and fall.
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
Anywhere I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I will swallow my pride.
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
And anywhere I would've followed you. Oh-oh-oh-oh
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
Say something...

You'll Be Okay

You'll be okay
You'll be okay
The sun will rise
To better days

And change will come
It's on it's way
Just close your eyes
And let it rain

'Cause you're never alone
I will always be there
You just carry on
You will understand

You'll be okay
You'll be okay
Just look inside
You know the way

Let it go
Fly away
And say goodbye
To yesterday

'Cause you're never alone
And I will always be there
You just carry on
You will understand

And I will be strong
When love is gone
I'll carry on...

You'll be okay
You'll be okay
The sun will rise
To better days

You'll be okay
You'll be okay
Just close your eyes
And let it rain

When you need it the most
And all you've got is a prayer
You must carry on
You will understand
You will understand
You will understand

You'll be okay
You'll be okay
You'll be okay.

Everyone Is Gay

If you're gay then you're gay
Don't pretend that you're straight
You can be who you are any day of the week
You are unlike the others
So strong and unique
We're all with you

If you're straight well that's great
You can help procreate
And make gay little babies
For the whole human race
Make a world we can live in
Where the one who you love's not an issue

'Cause we're all somewhere in the middle
And we're all just looking for love to change the world
What if the world stops spinning tomorrow?
We can't keep running away from who we are

If you're gay then you're gay
If you're straight well that's great
If you fall in between that's the best way to be
You've got so many options
Every fish in the sea wants to kiss you

Awwww...

'Cause we're all somewhere in the middle
And we're all just looking for love to change the world
What if the world stops spinning tomorrow?
We can't keep running away from who we are

And we're all here in it together
We're one step closer to breaking down the walls
Everyone is gay

There Is An Answer

I am just a sailor in a great big sea
Searching for what's meant for me
And I thank my lucky stars every single day
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be

When the storm begins to blow
When I've lost my way back home
Oh, there is an answer
Oh, there is an answer

There is a ripple to every wave
A rhythm to the days and nights
And all our thoughts, they make the world go round
All our efforts multiply

Make a change, and you will see
One small step is all we need
Oh, there is an answer
Oh, there is an answer

There is no difference between you and me
It lies beyond our history
And if we only take the time to see we're all we need
Just take my hand, and see me as a brother

Look inside, and you will find
Love exists in every kind
Oh, there is an answer
Oh, there is an answer

Near or far, oh I believe that love will find us there
Through the dark, oh I believe that love will find us there
Oh, I believe that love will find us there
Oh, I believe that love will find us there
Oh, I believe that love will find us there

Oh, there is an answer

I Don't Wanna Love Somebody Else

Oh, I built a world around you
Oh, you had me in a dream,
I lived in every word you said
The stars had aligned
I thought that I found you
And I don't wanna love somebody else

Oh, we left it all unspoken
Oh, we buried it alive
and now it's screaming in my head
Oh, I shouldn't go on hoping
Oh, that you will change your mind
and one day we could start again
Well I don't care if loneliness kills me
I don't wanna love somebody else

Oh, I thought that I could change you
Oh, I thought that we would be the greatest story that I tell
I know that it's time to tell you it's over
But I don't wanna love somebody else

This Is The New Year

Another year you made a promise
Another chance to turn it all around
And do not save this for tomorrow
Embrace the past and you can live for now

And I will give the world to you

Speak louder than the words before you
And give them meaning no one else has found
The role we play is so important
We are the voices of the underground

And I would give the world to you

Say everything you've always wanted
Be not afraid of who you really are
Cause in the end we have each other
And that's at least one thing worth living for

And I would give the world to you

A million suns that shine upon me
A million eyes you are the brightest blue
Lets tear the walls down that divide us
And build a statue strong enough for two

I pass it back to you
And I will wait for you,
Cause I would give the world
And I would give the world
And I would give the world to you

This is the new year
A new beginning
You made a promise
You are the brightest
We are the voices

This is the new year
We are the voices
This is the new year

A new beginning
You made a promise
We are the voices
This is the new year

Shorty Don't Wait

Shorty don't wait in line
Shorty don't wait til the sun don't shine
Shorty don't wait in line
Shorty don't wait til your life goes by

When your heart don't feel like dancing
I'll be there to give you mine
When you lose that happy feeling
I will lift your spirits high

Shorty don't wait in line
Shorty don't wait til the sun don't shine
Shorty don't wait in line
Shorty don't wait til your life goes by

All those people who have hurt you
They ain't worth your precious time
When there's no one you can turn to
I'll be right there by your side

Shorty don't wait in line
Shorty don't wait til the sun don't shine
Shorty don't wait in line
Shorty don't wait til your life goes by

Take that weight off of your shoulders
You can rest your head on mine
When you feel like starting over
Don't think twice, yea it's alright.

Shorty don't wait in line
Shorty don't wait til the sun don't shine
Shorty don't wait in line
Shorty don't wait til your life goes by

Cheer Up!

Cheer up! 'Cos nothing really matters when you look up into outer space.
It's a great big world and there's no need to cry.

Cheer up! We're all interconnected to the reaches of the galaxy.
And my best friend said he came from the sky.
He travelled to The Earth aboard a pink spaceship, it's hard for him to hide behind those eyes.

Cheer up! The atoms in your body are as old as every dinosaur.
You're a special part of one bring grand design.

Cheer up! We're all in this together to discover what we're living for.
13 billion years and there's still time.

Every night I wish upon the star so bright, waiting for the others to arrive.

Cheer up! 'Cos nothing really matters when you look up into outer space.
It's a great big world and there's no need to cry.
13 billion years and there's still time.

Say Something

(feat. Christina Aguilera)

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'll be the one, if you want me to.
Anywhere I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I am feeling so small.
It was over my head
I know nothing at all.

And I will stumble and fall.
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
Anywhere I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I will swallow my pride.
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
And anywhere I would've followed you. Oh-oh-oh-oh
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
Say something...
