Artist: I Am The Giant

Jim Soule

I was a lonely boy
Out there searching
Couldn't find much joy
Too old to fake it
Too young to hide it away

I played the master thief
Stealing the lives of the people I'd meet
Faking away each day so gracelessly

But there's a price that must be paid
You can't hide out every day
Somebody comes along
And blows your cover all away

Oh I lay down in a meadow in the sky
And I held my breath as I fell into your eyes
I love your hair smells sweet like pure Rocky Mountain air
Like the big sky shining on a Winnipeg night
Dust in the air and the Northern Lights
All in your country wide soul
I love your country wide soul

That's the only speed I've ever seen you go
You take good care of me as the days go by
Is that the mail train I see
Well I hope it's not carrying any news for me
I just can't see myself on the company line

There's another season gone and lord I'm feeling strong
Got to find a way to keep this dream dreaming on

Oh I lay down in a meadow in the sky
And I held my breath as I fell into your eyes
I love your face well it takes me to so many beautiful places
Driving through the night under Prairie stars
Listening to a band in a St. Johns bar
Down by the water on a Halifax shore
Listening to the wind and the ocean roar
Freight train rolling through the Great Divide
The magic in the mushrooms of PEI
All in your country wide soul
