about

In 1996 I wrote this song, recorded a scratch demo of myself singing and playing it on guitar, and forgot about it. In 1999, my then-fiancee heard the tape, liked it, and suggested that I go ahead and finish the song and record it; and here it is.

lyrics

BIGGER - words & music by Nate Butler
Don't say I didn't warn you not to come by without calling
I won't be angry, but you will surely see that I take it personally

I said more than I meant when I said I was indifferent
How many times did I say "I" in my last sentence?

I want to be bigger than I know
I want to be bigger than I know

I picked another fight with some of the guys who like bashing
I wasn't the target of their stupid prejudice, but this time they sure kicked my ass in

I want to be bigger than I know
I want to be bigger than I know

Don't say I didn't warn you not to come by without calling
No, I'm not angry, but you can surely see that I take it personally

I want to be bigger than I know
I want to be bigger than I know
I want to be bigger than I know

Don't say I didn't warn you not to come by without calling
