lyrics

"A World That’s Bigger"

We don’t know how big the world will be
When we take it slowly down the road
To the baseball field by the one-room schoolhouse
With the paint that’s peeled

And the church won’t share
The answers to the secrets in our prayers for you,
Sing them out, sing them strong,
Beat our doubt, by helping you belong to

A world that’s bigger than you and me
A world that’s bigger than the fur and the flea
A world that’s bigger than the length of a sea
A world that’s bigger than you and me and love, Virginia

We don’t know if we’ll have to break the bank
When we send you off to the school
With the best college rank
For the subjects of your choice that make you say

That the world is bigger than you and me
A world that's bigger than the fur and the flea
The world that's bigger than the length of the sea
The world that's bigger than you and me and.

The root of all heartache is a mild surprise
With these gentle words we try to calm your cries
You were born a spring baby during the last winter snow
Even Mother Nature doesn’t know

That thee world is bigger than you and me
The world is bigger than the fur and the flea
The world is bigger than the length of a sea
The world is bigger than you and me and love, Virginia
