So Big, So Small – von “Dear Evan Hansen”

 

I adore this song and I adore this musical.  This song from a mother to her son is just beautiful and caring.  I will probably never have the chance to sing it before an audience, but I just love all of it.

 

 

It was a February day
When your dad came by, before going away
A U-Haul truck in the driveway
The day it was suddenly real
I told you not to come outside
But you saw that truck
And you smiled so wide
A real live truck in your driveway
We let you sit behind the wheel
Goodbye, goodbye
Now it’s just me and my little guy
And the house felt so big, and I felt so small
The house felt so big, and I felt so small
That night, I tucked you into bed
I will never forget how you sat up and said
“Is there another truck coming to our driveway?
A truck that will take mommy away”
And the house felt so big, and I felt so small
The house felt so big, and I
And I knew there would be moments that I’d miss
And I knew there would be space I couldn’t fill
And I knew I’d come up short a billion different ways
And I did
And I do
And I will
But like that February day
I will take your hand, squeeze it tightly and say
There’s not another truck in the driveway
Your mom isn’t going anywhere
Your mom is staying right here
Your mom isn’t going anywhere
Your mom is staying right here
No matter what
I’ll be here
When it all feels so big
‘Til it all feels so small
When it all feels so big
‘Til it all feels so small
‘Til it all feels so small
