Curtis Stigers – The Big One lyrics

Come take my hand
Come walk again with me
In my dreams of love
But dreams will fade
And all the plans we made
Will go up in flame
All in vain
Every story has an end
And we can't go on pretending
Like we used to
And I should go off by myself
To preserve my mental health
But I don't choose to
I might lose you
'Cause I'm
Waiting for the big one
Waiting for the ground to start to shake
Waiting for the big one
When the walls start to crumble
And love comes a tumblin' down
I never knew
I never saw the writing
On the crumbling wall
We had it all
I've done the best I can
Built you castles in the sand
Just to keep you
But the tide's coming in
And I'll sink if I don't swim
But I can't leave you
I won't leave you
'Cause I'm
Waiting for the big one
Waiting for the walls to start to shake
Waiting for the big one
When my heart starts to break
And the earth starts to quake
Waiting for the big one
They built this house of love
On shaky ground
Waiting for the big one
When the walls start to crumble
And love comes a tumblin' down
And all this time
I thought the world would turn
And the sun would shine
And you'd be mine
But I can't find a trace
Of the love in your face
That I'm used to
You don't need me anymore
And I can walk right out that door
If I choose to
But I don't choose to
Written by C. Stigers and G. Ballard
