My bestfriend's husband recently died at 53 years young. My husband spent most of "hang-time" with this man.. smoking cigars and sipping George Dickel and coke. All 4 of us were intending to spent the rest of our lives together.. surprise, surprise..

Story Behind the Song

His job was done down here.. He's up there now to teach me and the friends he touched that "the love you get comes from the love you give".

Lyrics

BIGGER PLANS (Britton, Korac & Dave Gibson)

Silver stars lit up the perfect scene
underneath that big Montana sky
young lovers laying quietly
wrapped in each other's arms all night

He thought of all the places he had been
but never felt such warmth against his skin
He didn't care to share the life he lived
but when he felt her breath upon his lips (he knew)

Somebody had bigger plans
for that hard working man
in all the things he'd done
he'd never found true love
'til she took him by the hand
cause somebody had bigger plans

He lived everyday just to be with her
the only girl to ever hold his heart
and if love's forever, he was sure
that they would never be apart

She never dreamed she'd lose him in his sleep
until she heard him sigh and felt him leave
and on one lonely night of endless tears
she swore he came and whispered in her ear (saying)

"Sombeody has bigger plans
for this hard working man
down here my job was done
and up there it's just begun"
she reached out to touch his hand
but somebody had bigger plans

and when I think about the way he lived
it was the time with her that made him rich
and I found what matters most is this
the love you get comes from the love you give

Somebody's got bigger plans
for this hard working man
so much I've left undone
and time keeps passing on
but now I finally understand
that somebody's got bigger plans,

Somebody up there's got bigger plans

(2005) Donna Britton & Kat Korac, Ascap
