Big Picture Lyrics
by . From Ordinary Days.
Iíll have a mocha caramel latte-chino
Made with skim milk, no whipped cream
Please put that in a grande cup
But use the same amount of coffee that youíd put into a tall
That way thereís about an inch of extra room on top
To stir in my own nutmeg without spilling any coffee at all
What do you want?
Iíll have a tea.
Heíll have your green Darjeeling tea,
Which Iím sure you know cannot be steeped for more than ninety-five seconds.
So, whatís your deal?
Your deal. What are you about?
Well, Iím about five foot five, I guess.
You really donít find me funny at all.
Funny, yes. Amusing, no.
But seriously, Warren, I want to know.
Describe to me your big picture
Well, thereís this Picasso
Everyoneís got a big picture.
Something they shoot for that sets them apart.
Weíve all got an awful lot to do before weíre dead.
So, where do you see yourself in, say, five years?
I havenít thought that far ahead.
Are you gonna be serious?
Do I have to.
Well. I work for an artist.
Tell me what you do.
I donít know, I watch his cat.
And this morning I fixed his curtain rod.
Sure, okay, that pays the rent
But that is not exactly what I meant
When I asked to hear your big picture
Something beyond your daily routine
Talk about your big picture
The fairy tale ending that youíve always seen
I am sure thereís something more to you than doing chores
Everyoneís got a big picture in mind
So, whatís yours?
Well, since you asked.
In five years Iíll have an amazing apartment
With bookshelves built into the walls
A window that looks out on someplace big
And a personal assistant who screens my calls
The book I write will be required reading
To get into the seminars that Iíll be leading
Thatís the plan, as far as I can see it.
And yet it isnít quite apparent what Iím supposed to do to get it.
Some big picture.
Howís your tea?
Oh, itís sort ofÖ gotten cold.
These stupid baristas donít know how to heat a proper Ė
Deb, itís really okay.
Look, I know that we just met.
But it seems to me that maybe you might wanna get
Some perspective on this big picture
Big, after all, is a relative term.
Maybe this whole big picture
Shouldnít be something on which you stand firm
Youíre in a rut, who cares, so what?
If your pictureís not quite clear.
I mean, you and me and lukewarm tea.
This could be your really big picture right here.
Oh my God, youíre right.
Sitting here at Starbucks drinking mediocre coffee with a professional cat sitter is all my life is going to amount to.
Thatís not really what I meant.
No, itís okay, Iím a strong woman, I can handle it.
Oh my God, what time is it?
I have to go.
Where are you going, Claire?
You donít have to go.
Please donít Ė
Yes, I do, Iím late for my appointment.
Deb, thereís something I want to show you.
You canít just leave me in the rain and hope that things will wash away.
I canít. Not now. Yes, later, Warren. I promise, later, Warren.
Promise me. Would you just then. Donít you want to -
Where are you going, Claire?
Canít you just talk to me, Claire?
