The Big Light  Elvis Costello



[E]Well I had a little feeling to have a big night
And [B]woke up feeling small and not so brave and not quite right
I had to [E]face the who am I and where is she what did I do
But worst of [A]all I had to [B]face the big [E]light
[E]The big light came through my window and it [A]opened up my eyelids
And it [B]snapped them up like roller blinds and [E]told me things that I did
I can't [E]face another day and night of [A]good ideas and complications
And I'm [B]thankful I didn't open another bottle of inspiration
Nifty James Burton lick at end of chorus

When the hangover this morning had a personality
And I cast my shattered mind over selected memories
I didn't even touch the light switch so I knew I'd never see
The Haggard face that would be staring back at me
Well I had a little feeling to have a big time
And I woke to alarm bells like a big church chime
I had to face the who am I and who is she what did I do
But worst of all I had to face the big light
Well it's [E]fine to go out and [A]have a big night
But sooner or [B]later you've got to face the big [E]light
