The Next Big Thing

We traveled the world together in the same dime store shoes
We had our ups and our downs but we never spoke of the blues
Then the sun started shining on you
And the rain held off until you were through
Running around leaving this life behind

The next thing we knew, you were the next big thing

You said success wouldn’t change you, it’d only open the door
For you to escape the ones who never wanted more
So you left for the city in spring
By winter you were crowned king
And we faded away behind all your new memories

The next thing we knew, you were the next big thing

Now you’re up with the stars
And we got all the time in the world
Sitting down here watching it from afar

Home is a place you can never go back when you change your point of view
And home is a place you always invent when the moment is right to be new
We get the feeling you’re gone
Lost to the great beyond
Farewell my friend
We’ll remember you

The next thing we knew, you were the next big thing
