This is a call to the colorblind
This is an IOU
I'm stranded behind the horizon line
Tied up in something tied up in something true

Yes i'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded
By all this pavement
Guess i'll circle
While i'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Someday i'll fly,
Someday i'll soar
Someday i'll be so damn much more
''cause i'm bigger than my body gives me credit for

Why is it not my time
What is there more to learn
Ive she'd this skin i've been tripping in
Never to quite return

Yes i'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded
By all this pavement
Guess i'll circle
While i'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Someday i'll fly,
Someday i'll soar
Someday i'll be so damn much more
''cause i'm bigger than my body gives me credit for

'cause i'm bigger than my body now
(guitar solo)

Maybe, i'll tangle in the power lines
And it might be over in a seconds time
But i'll glady go down in a flame if a flames what it takes to remember my name

Yes i'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded
By all this pavement
Guess i'll circle
While i'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Someday i'll fly,
Someday i'll soar
Someday i'll be so damn much more
''cause i'm bigger than my body gives me credit for

    The song bigger than my body is an abstract way of interpretating that one day one will be something much more than what they are perceived as currently. The song also gently relates a persons life to being free (like a bird). Mayer references the things that a bird does to what we as people can face, death at any point in time (tangled in the power lines), facing many fears (wings clipped, the inability to fly), but in the hopes of one day being free (flying and soaring) and something more than we are, not necessarily meaning fame as mayer is very humble, but successful at what you do. Basically the song in short can be described in one phrase, and that is "theres more than what meets the eye. " lyrically, mayers underlying meanings in his songs make him one of the most gifted songwriters presently making music.
