about

Fair to say, this is the song that created the band. Rob wrote the song in Vancouver and we sent the demo back and forth tossing on ideas.

lyrics

Pretty Big Shoes to Fill - Red Falcon / White Lightning

I'm surprised you're still standing/ After walkin' in my shoes/
Said, I'm surprised you're still standing/ After walkin' in my shoes/
Because they are some pretty big shoes to fill/
After walkin' through that mile/

I don't really know you, but I'll stop and say hello(HELLO!)/
I said, I don't really know you, but I'll stop and shake your hand/
(MY NAME'S ROB)/
Because there's one thing you should understand/
It's that it's good to be alive man/

I'm getting sick of this lifestyle/ I've always got to prove myself/
So I took a walk through your garden/ 'Cause I had some seeds to sow/
I'm trying' to make it to the promised land/
I'm gonna leave this earth a man, yeah/

Put one foot in front of the other/ To get from point A to B/
'Cause inch by inch life's a cinch/
But don't you know?? Yard by yard life's hard/
And if you want to make it very far/ Just try staying where you are/
Said if you want make it very far/ Just try staying where you are man
