Gauntlets
Thrown one by one
See how they run
When the check doesn’t clear
And it’s time to pay the bill
Some are gonna ride it out
Some can’t and they never will

'Cause it’s a great big world calling you to take a ride
And it’s a great big world singing “come and see and come inside”
Oh yeah, a great big world reminding you you’re not alone
So hold on this great big world we only get to rent, we never get to own

Inches fill a yard stick
Feet slowly walk a mile
Make one move then another
And then you try to live a while
Keep your head and you might make it
But that ain’t no guarantee
'Cause it takes debt and obligation
To fly around so free

And it’s a great big world calling you to take a ride
And it’s a great big world singing “come and see and come inside”
Oh yeah, a great big world reminding you you’re not alone
So hold on this great big world we only get to rent, we never get to own

Whatcha gonna do first?
And where will you make your mark?
How are you going to get there?
And can you find a place to park?
Seasons coming slowly
But still they always come
And then it feels like just a second
And then suddenly you’re done

And it’s a great big world reminding you you’re not alone
And it’s a great big world we only get to rent, we never get to own
'Cause it’s a great big world calling you to take a ride
And it’s a great big world singing “come and see and come inside”
Oh yeah, a great big world reminding you you’re not alone
So hold on this great big world we only get to rent, we never get to own
