She's Actual Size

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album Apollo 18 (1992) and on the live album Severe Tire Damage (1998).

Words fail. Buildings tumble. The ground opens wide.
Light beams down from heaven.
She stands before my eyes.

She's actual size but she seems much bigger to me.
Squares may look distant in her rear view mirror
But they're actual size - as she drives away.

Big men often tremble as they step aside.
I thought I was big once. She changed my mind.

She's actual size but she seems much bigger to me.
I've never known anybody like her.
She's actual size, nationwide, believe.

She's got all the money money couldn't buy.
She's got something special that someone left behind.

She's actual size but she seems much bigger to me.
Squares may look distant in her rear view mirror
But they're actual size - actual size to her.

Her face hangs in portrait on the post office wall.
She's stuck in my heart now, where my blood belongs.

She's actual size but she seems much bigger to me.
I've never known anybody like her.
She's actual size - actual size, believe.
