Big Break

from Lost Angeles by Richard Turgeon



This song will be the lead track on my upcoming LP, "Lost Angeles." It's one of my favorites I've ever done and the kind of song I feel most comfortable making: big-sounding, California-tinged power pop with lots of nice harmonies and melody.

It sounds just like that time in a young man's life when rockin' out and making it is all that matters.

I knew what I wanted long ago
I wanna hear this song on the radio
This old guitar’s been my one friend
I may not sound so good but I’ll try again

I been waiting forever for my big break
Everything else falls away like a big mistake

You’re on the list for my big show
If no one else shows up, you’re the first to know
I’ll keep on rockin’ til the day I die
It’s never made me rich, so don’t ask me why

I been waiting forever for my big break
Everything else falls away like a big mistake
Chasin’ this old dream is just like chasing time
I’ll be alright as long as you’re by my side

I’ve chosen this road to follow
Everything else seems so hollow
I’ll arrive but it seems I don't know when

I been waiting forever for my
I’m tired of waiting for my
Don’t deny it, I’m ready for my big break
