A Little Bigger Lyrics

This one goes out to the man
Who paints with his mouth while listening to jams
And This one goes out to the kid on the street
Ain’t got a mic but his still spitting beats
This one goes out to the actors on stage
Who barely get paid
And this one goes out to everyone who digs deep
Who still has the courage to live for their dreams

And live life, A Little Bigger
And love, A Little Bigger
Live life, A Little Bigger
Come on dream, A Little Bigger

My father worked hard when I was young
Always out the door trying to make the income
Up early out late pushing hard all week
He’d known poverty and wanted better for me
Better for me than what he had for himself
Kept a roof over head and kept food in our mouths
I didn’t know then what I do today
But he worked so hard so I could live this way

And live life, A Little Bigger
And love, A Little Bigger
Live life, A Little Bigger
Come on dream, A Little Bigger

Theres no silver bullet theres no golden prayer
Its hard work and love and the choice to dare
To live A Little Bigger than each day before
Spread some love that’s what you’re here for
It’s hard to hate others if you’re living with peace
If you’re focused on fear you can’t live out your dreams
Well, I don’t know your passions I don’t know you needs
But if you’re feeling this song then sing along with me

And live life, A Little Bigger
And love, A Little Bigger
Live life, A Little Bigger
Come on dream, A Little Bigger

Sometime your fears get the best
Like your hearts gonna pound out your chest
When you face the truth and your still you
Its when you’ve got to press
Forward toward a new day
Your past is now a moment away
Your futures unwritten
What choice will you make
With the tools you’ve been given
What path will you take to

Live life, A Little Bigger
And love, A Little Bigger
Live life, A Little Bigger
Come on dream, A Little Bigger

Live life, A Little Bigger
Come on love, A Little Bigger
Live life, A Little Bigger
Come on dream, A Little Bigger
