lyrics

Something Great
(Markus Rill)

I was just a kid
we were all nothing but kids
someone else might’ve pretended to be older or wiser
but none of us ever did

We were a sports team from the country
sounded like the country
someone else might’ve pretended to be more worldly
but not the guys or me
We were young and unrefined
laid it all out on the line

I was a part of something great
part of something bigger than myself
part of something great
and I never thought I’d feel that way again, feel that way again

The city boys looked down
when we rolled into town
some other teams might’ve been stronger, richer or better
but we always stood our ground
‘cause we were in our prime
laid it all out on the line

I was a part of something great
part of something bigger than myself
part of something great
and I never thought I’d feel that way again, feel that way again

And we stood so strong
‘cause we stood as one
and it’s been so long
but that feeling will never quite be gone

Now I’m on this stage tonight
these Troublemakers by my side
some other bands, they might be younger, hipper or louder
but I believe we’re doing alright
‘cause we lay it all out on the line
and I feel so alive

Like I’m a part of something great
part of something bigger than myself
part of something great
and I never thought I’d feel that way again, now I feel that way again
