The Big Light

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
Well, I had a little feeling to have a big night
And I woke up feeling small and not so brave and not quite right
Had to face the where was I and who was she, what did I do
Worst of all I had to face the big light
Johnny and Carter Family: The big light came through my window and it opened up my eyelids
Johnny: And it snapped them up like roller blinds and told me things that I did
I can't face another day and night of good ideas and complications
And I'm thankful that I didn't open another bottle of inspiration
(inspiration)

When the hangover this morning had a personality
And I cast my shattered mind over selected memory
Didn't even touch the light switch cause I didn’t want to see
That haggard face a staring back at me
Johnny and Carter Family: The big light came through my window and it opened up my eyelids
Johnny: And it snapped them up like roller blinds and told me things that I did
I can't face another day and night of good ideas and complications
And I'm thankful that I didn't open another bottle of inspiration
(inspiration)

Yes, I had a little feeling to have a big time
And I woke up to alarm bells like a big church chime
Had to face the where was I and who was she, what did I do
Worst of all I had to face the big light
Johnny and Carter Family: The big light came through my window and it opened up my eyelids
Johnny: And it snapped them up like roller blinds and told me things that I did
I can't face another day and night of good ideas and complications
And I'm thankful that I didn't open another bottle of inspiration
(inspiration)

Oh, it's nice to go out and have a big night
But sooner or later you got to face the big light
