big umbrella lyrics – big umbrella

———–
sometimes i use you like a shield,
cut down the rows of stinging rain.
sometimes i use you like a pillow
bury my face and i shout the pain.
you’re like a rainbow on a field
you break the melancholy
you’ve become a sort of sanctuary to me.
you are the power that i wield.

big umbrella
over my head
big umbrella
cut down the rows of stinging rain

and when i’m feeling kind of hollow
like a rusting hull at the bottom of truk lagoon
and when this world gets hard to swallow
and i just can’t take another spoon,
you’re like a secret just revealed.
push out the stale air.
you’ve become a sort of sanctuary to me.
anytime you’re looking, you can find me there.

you’re the big umbrella over me.
anytime it rains
