Chris Rea – Shadows Of The Big Man lyrics

Oh you've been so long
In the shadows of the big man
How long can you take it
How far can you go
Don't you know how strong
In the shadows of the big man
While he smiles in the sunlight
You can die in the cold

Spend your life, In the shadows of the big man
Sell your wife and children, if it made him smile
How long can you take it, or do you really need it!
Oh standing in the shadws, the shadows of the big man
And you'd love all the world to see
How you break your chains and set yourself free
And all you got to do is walk away
Walk away from the shadows of the big man
