Big Stretch

This song is by The Bear Quartet and appears on the album Family Affair (1993).

Never caught in the searchlights
Of anybody else's life
That's why you stay,
That's why I won't say:
"You don't fit in elsewhere anyway babe"

It's a big stretch
Into nothingness
Tracing for something else
Something that doesn't hurt
Or stain your heart
Never mentioned in kind words
But oh, so often heard
Not even dwarfed
By our helplessness

In a garbage filled apartment
Where all your time got spent
And the smell from decades away
Couldn't help you around the bend

It's a big stretch
Into nothingness
Not slowed down
By our littleness
