The Big Picture

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Someone smashed my window
broke into my brand new car last night
Caught my boyfriend lookin'
at another slender pair of thighs

Gotta make more money
Gotta get, gotta get there
faster than the rest, yeah
Knock 'em off the ladder
if they even seem to
stand a chance

The big picture
Gotta big white cloud
The big picture
is starin' at me
starin' at me

ooh, ooh, yeah
ooh, ooh, yeah
big picture

Why do I feel so threatened
that somebody else will take what's mine
Babe, it's only rented
No one really owns the merchandise

What about what I want?
Somehow it got lost somewhere
inside
My mother's on my case
I told her it's my life
well, she just died

The big picture
Gotta big white cloud
The big picture
is starin' at me
starin' at me

The big picture
On a big blank wall, hey
The big picture
is starin' at me
starin' at me

ooh, ooh, yeah
ooh, ooh, yeah

When I can see
I'll try again
I've got my paints

The big picture
the big picture
hey!
the big picture
got a big white cloud
the big picture, yeah
is starin' at me, starin' at me

the big picture, yeah
on a big blank wall
the big picture, yeah
it's starin' at me, starin' at me
gotta be
yeah baby

the big, the big, big picture
gotta be there, hey
gotta be, ooh, yeah
it's starin' at me, starin' at me
the big picture, yeah, hey
gotta be, gotta be, baby, oh yeah
the big picture, yeah
gotta big white cloud, white cloud
big picture
big picture
