In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive. I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered. I'm not expecting to grow flowers in a desert But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime. In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive. In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive
