Lyrics for Big Man In A Little Suit
By Elton John

Mail these lyrics to a friend

Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Released as a uk b-side in 1998

Oh i've been staying up nights
Thinking about a long flight that could take me home
Or a slow train rolling
Or a big boat floating out there on that lonely ocean

I'm not the man i was
I guess the dark side lost and the sun broke through
I thought i knew it all
I was the next big thing until i thought about you


Oh i was reaching for the stars
When i wasn't even touching you
I was lying to myself, i needed no one's help
Thought i was living proof


When there's one set of footsteps
No one's gonna fill your shoes
Now i'm looking in the mirror
At a big man in a little suit


I'm a big man in a little suit
It's tight on me, hard on you
It's a short cut but it's a long way home
When you think you can make it on you own


You think you're bulletproof
But what you really are
Is a big man in a little suit


I was part of the chain
A face with no name in a place with no soul
By a thief in the night
I was robbed of the light and left nothing, nothing to hold


I've turned my back on a world like that
I want to get back to loving you
Give me one more chance
Won't you warm the hands of this cold headed fool
