I Got Big Plans

I read somewhere about the Disney story arc, there's always a song at the start where the main character always exposes their big aspiration. I like to think that I'm the hero of my own story.

This song is more of a stream of conciousness that sort of barfed itself out on my train ride into my laptop.

I Got Big Plans- (c) 2015 Timothy Pratt
 
v1
Someday I’m gonna go big
And get a hit record
I’ll learn first-hand that
It’s not all it’s cracked up to be
v2
Someday I’ll play the winning hand
Going all in
With a fist of sand
I’m not who I thought I was gonna be
 pc
And if the hits keep coming
Even if my words are stumbling
I’ll be in the corner lost and dreaming
 ch
I got big plans
But no means
So I try a little bit at a time
I got no hits
Feeling lifeless
Praying that you drop me a line
And maybe drop a few dimes.
 
v3
Not sure if this ill pay off
Can’t lose I’m already laid off
From the salt mine
Sportin’ tan lines
 
 v4
The big day finally came 
Singing out loud I’m insane
I’ll learn first hand
If you all want to sing along
pc
And if the hits keep coming
Even if my words are stumbling
I’ll be in the corner lost and dreaming
 c
I got big plans
But no means
So I try a little bit at a time
I got no hits
Feeling lifeless
Praying that you drop me a line
And maybe drop a few dimes
