Cavetown - Big Bowl In The Sky Lyrics

This one's for my best friend
We never spoke a word
But the way he looked into my eyes
I knew he understood
Grabbing on so tight
Like nothing matters more
My handsome little scaly guy
My pretty baby boy

And I don't wanna have to miss you
I don't wanna have to say goodbye
I don't wanna have to leave you
To the big bowl in the sky
So lucky that you were mine
Put your PJs on for one last time
And I'm really gonna miss you
Rest easy little guy

Rushing home from school
Couldn't stand to be alone
But this year I had someone there
With you I had a home
If I'm friends with everyone
Or have nobody at all
You helped me see that either way
There's a place where I belong

I don't wanna have to miss you
I don't wanna have to say goodbye
I don't wanna have to leave you
To the big bowl in the sky
Though it's crushing down on me
We both know it's what you need
But I'm really gonna miss you
So rest easy buddy
Yeah I'm really gonna miss you
Rest easy for me

    Now I don't cry easily, but this song literally makes me tear up even when I'm not listening to it....THIS IS A MASTERPIECE

  8. Luminecentmoon

    This is my cry song, it reminds me of my best friend from arizona, I loved her with all of my heart and she was basically my "daughter". We would spend pretty much the whole day together (with her big sister my other best friend who was my age) every day and run around the neigborhood and play game after game, start tradition after tradition, we even had a little "biker gang" that we dressed as every halloween cause we all had scooters we would use all the time, and they became our motercycles. We even had a constant (24/7) ongoing game thing for years where we were all witches of low teirs at first but ended up being the highest witches in the multiverse around the end, and we would make potions and face villains and more. It was our thing, our joy, our life. But then one day I got some pretty sudden news that I was moving in about a week, and I would probaly never be able to see them again.. and sure enough it happened and it wrecked us all. 7 years of all of our lives stripped away too sudden. Its been a quite a few years now and I havent seen them in a while. After abour a year from me moving they were able to get real phones and we could get in contact and would call at least once a week, but as time's gone by we've all gotten busy with studys, extra curriculars, jobs, ect, and haven't been able to talk as much. We got 1 visit were I got to go see them for 10 days over the first summer break after the move and they were the 10 happiest days of my life. However I haven't gotten to see them since then and I get sad a lot. But whenever I get really sad about it, I listen to this song on honor of them and it helps me cry and let out my feelings to calm down. I really love them and cavetown and this song will forever be engraved in my heart alongside them. If it weren't for this song I would be much more emotionally distraught and raw, and my issues with the separation probably wouldn't clear up much if any. This song inspires me to hold on to the pasts best memories, and move on no matter how hard it can be. Thankyou robbie for making this, and thankyou to Hayven and Jayden, my soul sisters and best best friends till the end. If your reading this, apprectiate what you've had and what you have now, and be sure to support cavetown and all the people you love. Go give them a hug or a call and remind them how much they mean to you. Have a great one, and always keep an open and positive mind. Never forget though, its ok to cry, as long as you push to mive forward afterwards. Dont let yourself wallow in pity for the rest of your days. Stay strong, cause no matter what. Whether you think so or not, there IS always someone who has your back. Who beleives in you. You need to beleive in you too. Buenos noches from a friend to a friend. (Ir whatever tome it is for you) 💜💜💜

  9. Mint Roni

    Guess Casper is his name now lol

    But ye, I really love this song!! ♡♡♡

  10. Mint Roni

    My brother and his wife lost their pet lizard this past year. I have no idea how long they've had him, but at least since college. Rip in peace, Vinny!

  11. Aaron Bitner

    I cry from this because I hate thinking about losing a pet. I have a lot of pets on the farm but this song makes me think of my bearded dragon Zeus, sometimes while I'm in bed ( i face the side of his tank) he comes up to say hi he used to be my brothers but he didn't want him anymore so I took him into my room I don't want him to leave because I need to give him a bioactive cage and get my own insect colonies going I need him to stay a little bit longer I have so much I store for you, Zeus. I love you, my pretty baby boy.

    We just buried my cat, Schrodinger. I loved him so much and I can't think about the good times with him without thinking about how we'll never be able to make more.

  17. Kyle Marquez

    I am going to be so sad when my cat dies.
    He is called my Buddy.
    I love you Buddy, and when you die,
    I will collapse.
    I will be nothing...

  18. don’t mind me

    don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry

  19. Louie Bassett

    I got a chameleon in October, he looks just like Caspar did and even though my little scaly guy will hopefully live for many more years, this song makes me cry sm

  20. ornella r

    I was listening to music an this song came on while I was on the plane to Madrid from Ecuador.
    I had been with (nearly all) my family for the first time, during all of my Christmas break.
    I couldn't help but cry so much when I heard the part 0:36-0:46, after replaying the song many times
    I felt a lot better, even if it's gonna be a lonely idk how many years or months until I see them again.
    Thanks for making this song Robbie :)

  21. Katar _

  25. Lil Skittles 2k18

  34. Yamilet Lopez

    i left my stuffed animal at my friends house when i slept over (mind you she has a brutally honest and bitchy personality but shes not a bad friend, its just who she is) and when she forgot to bring him to me two times i told her to please bring him back soon and she said "get over your stupid ass duck" (the stuffed animal is a duck btw) and i literally nearly started crying because every memory i have contains that duck and she still hasn't brought him back and now i feel like a pussy

  35. - Clorox

  36. AlexxSan

    This reminded me of my bearded dragon that I lost 2 years ago.... He would've been 7 soon cause his birthday is December 3rd.. This is my First time properly crying in so long so I want to thank you. Also could anyone reading this wish him a happy birthday?

  37. Audrey Bart

    This song makes me so sad because it’s about Caspar and he died and that made robin sad and the thought of robin being sad makes me sad and it’s cuz Caspar dead and he was a wonderful cham 😭❤️❤️

  38. smicley hehe

    Um I’m scared that my moms gonna walk into me sobbing

  39. Fanjee

    My cat, Tony, is going to the Humane Society and I've been singing this song to him all night. I don't want him to go. I'm really
    gonna miss him.

  40. D3M0N!C Studios

    At first I thought this was just a sad song..
    But today my dad called me and told me my fluffy baby boy, Hamilton, had passed in his sleep.
    I've been crying nonstop.. Everyone's trying to tell me he was just a pet, but he was more than that. He was my best friend.

  41. Lauren Delaney

    I miss my cat Leo so much. Got him when my parents split and had to move right before middle school. Easily one of the hardest times of my life. Being a 12 year old, barely above poverty. Just ugh. That cat was the sunshine that kept me and my siblings happy. No internet. Just throwing paper balls w Leo. The night we moved in (he “came with the house” because his old owners left him) I felt so sad and scared but he slept on me. From that moment he was my best friend. I doubt anyone will read this but I’m sad. I’m getting a tattoo of the constellation for him. I love you Leo. You were the sun. We all miss you.

    not a western spy

    I'm sorry for your loss mate
    If there's an afterlife I'm sure he's waiting for you at the door

    hello there

    I'm sorry for your loss, sending love and hugs to you ❤️❤️❤️

  42. Garrett

    i lost my bearded dragon, misha, and i really relate to this.

  43. Twenty Paphonies

    This was never really my favorite cavetown song. A few days ago, my pet cockatiel passed suddenly and unexpectedly and honestly this song has been on repeat since then.

  44. Carla Izaguirre

    My fishy-boy developed dropsy a couple of days ago and, I assume from the immense bloating, his tummy has began to ... ‘wear away’.. to spare you the details. I know it’s unpleasant and I can tell he’s been suffering. I’ve decided to euthanize him today. I cannot allow him to continue suffering. He was with me for nearly a year.. he was gifted to me last year for my birthday by some very awesome friends who knew I needed a little companion to help with my sadness. He’s been there for me when I was in my last semester in college, through all the stress and crying, figuring out who I’m going to be, my graduation, for my first actual job, transitioning into a new part of life and growing up. It sucks that I won’t be able to celebrate my birthday with him... just nine more days.. but I won’t make him suffer any longer. Rest easy, Sash. I’ll miss you every day.

  45. The Prince Of Cats

    I just finished the rough draft of a story I had to write for school, basically at the end the main character's friend dies but I was litsening to this album and the song came on and hhhhHhhhHHhHhHhh lemmie just say there were some *tears*

  46. crose

    I've always been on the verge of crying/cried at this song and 16 / 04 / 16. I had a cat who was older than me. She was born in June, and I was born in December. She's been very close to me and she felt like an everlasting best friend. On May 30th, she was taken to the vet, and when my parents came back, she told me that she died. I couldn't stop crying. We planted a tree for her remembrance. It was around her birthday, and I was 9 years old. I just wish I went with the vet for her last moments. Her last moments at home, though, were on my bed, and we were listening to music. I'm so lucky that you were mine, Callie.

  47. Melgan

    I sang this song at my brothers funeral but I changed the lyrics so now I just listen to it on repeat.......

  48. RabbitTeeth

    Rest in peace, ziyal
    You were the best baby beared dragon a disaster like me could've had, though you lived a stressful life, full of worry, it was a good one. I wish I could've seen you grow up and eat all the crickets in the world, yet if you grew up, it would be a painful life. I hope you are better and contempt in the big branch in the sky.

  65. Tai Yoder

    First time listening to this entire album in depth and hot damn, I was definitely not expecting to be sobbing before the first chorus. Last time I was this caught off guard emotionally by a song was when the Mountain Goats played Shadow Song out of nowhere the first time I saw them live. This song is so simple but so emotional... 10/10 will cry again

  66. The Bree-saw Effect
