Gonna write me a big song, with a huge hook,

Driving em’ crazy, making everybody look at my

Cush life, and my beautiful wife

Living the dream, we’d be dancing all night, yeah

 

I’m only one big song away

 

This isn’t gonna change me, for better or worse

I took a vow, so I’m going write another verse

I married a money machine,  she ain’t paid made me a dime, but

One big chorus and they’d be standing in line

 

Big song,  just need one of you to make me a star like all the others

Not sure what else I can do, to make my dreams come true

But I just need one they say

And I’m only, one big song away, yeah

I’m only, I’m only one big song away

 

We’re looking up to you, just paying our dues

If I had your dream, what am I going do?

Must have written you down, 100 times or so

When a star gets lucky, we’ll never know, cause

 

Big song,  just need one of you to make me a star like all the others

Not sure if its me or you I’m singing to, but I just need one they say

And I’m only one big song away, yeah and

I’m only one big song away…yeah…

 

Big song,  I just need one of you to make me a star like all the others

Not sure if its me or you that I’m singing to, but I just need one they say

Not sure what else I can do, to make my dreams come true,

But I just need one they say

And I’m only one big song away,  yeah

I’m only, I’m only, I’m only

One big song away

 

 

And I’m only one big song away

And I’m only , I’m only, I’m only one big song away…

As a huge fan of both live and recorded music, I have heard successful artists often pay tribute to that “One Song” that changed their entire lives and careers. You always wonder why some acts cut through the noise and others don’t reach the same tall stages of perceived fame and fortune.

In this song, I wrote about the need for, the pursuit and reality of being just “One Big Song Away”.

Incidentally, this could be true for anyone in life, your next kid, your next job, your next painting, your next relationship or maybe one you already have.

This is certainly a hopeful and fun song to play. The experience of writing, recording, and making of a full featured video continues to be something I am grateful for having  in my life. I wish the best to all of those fishing for the big one.

Maybe you are just “One Big Song Away”
