Big sky looked down on, all the people looking up at the big sky
Big sky feels sad when he sees the children scream and cry

Big sky to high to see

Till that day can be, don't let it get you down
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
People lift up their hands and they look up to the big sky

Though he would like to try
Big sky's too big to cry
One day well be free.
Till that day can't be, don't let it get you down
I think of the big sky and nothing matters much to me
