play Big Mistake

from Big Horizon BUY ITunes

They taught us kids in school between the recess breaks

That the universe just sorta fell together like a Big Mistake

It started with a bang that sent the pieces flying

Then it cooled and twirled into dinosaurs and dandelioins


It was a Big Mistake to have eyes that see

To have love like this inside of me

To have lips that smile as I swim your kiss

To have minds that will forever every part of this

All the moonlight shrouded in the clouds above and

the autumn leaves and the falling love

The still reflection in the moonlit lake

All, they said, it was a big mistake, it was a big mistake

Now back to science class through the looking glass

We were magnifying little ancestors of our ancient past

Watch 'em break a couple chromosomes, wait a zillion years or so

And get an ostrich, a jellyfish, a kangaroo, and a Romeo


The choreography of a coincidence

At the turning point there was eternity behind a moment's glance

It was for you and me the timing made us laugh

The fact that anyone could find their only one along this darkened path
