AIMEE MANN lyrics - Bigger Than Love

AIMEE MANN
"Bigger Than Love"

It's bigger than love
Brighter than all the stars combined
It's dwarfing the sun
Burning within my heart and mind

I live with my memories, the bustling fervor of New York
Where on 59th street we quarreled and broke the bathroom door
'Cause you were just drinking 'til you could hardly see
Oh how much I loved you but I couldn't bring myself to leave

It's bigger than love
Brighter than all the stars combined
It's dwarfing the sun
Burning within my heart and mind

Our summers in Paris, the Seine overflowing with champagne
And I knew you stepped out but you knew that I had done the same
And we had a child there but we couldn't raise her on our own
So our house got crowded and I'd never felt so all alone

It's bigger than love
Brighter than all the stars combined
It's dwarfing the sun
Burning within my heart and mind

It's bigger than love
Brighter than all the stars combined
It's dwarfing the sun
Burning within my heart and mind

Stranded in Asheville failing to fix a broken head
You're in California doing the work of lesser men
Oh what of our daughter, oh what of the love that we once shared?
It's living inside us battered but not beyond repair

Our fate decreed
A singularity
A solemn tune
I play at night and dance around the room

It's bigger than love
Brighter than all the stars combined
It's dwarfing the sun
Burning within my heart and mind

It's bigger than love
Brighter than all the stars combined
It's dwarfing the sun
Burning within my heart and mind
