Big Country - In A Big Country album
Big Country are a Scottish rock band formed in Dunfermline, Fife, in 1981. The height of the band's popularity was in the early to mid 1980s, although it retained a cult following for many years after. The band's music incorporated Scottish folk and martial music styles, and the band engineered their guitar-driven sound to evoke the sound of bagpipes, fiddles and other traditional folk instruments.
The Seer is the third studio album by the Scottish band Big Country, released in 1986. The album featured very traditional Scottish musical settings, reminiscent of the band's debut album The Crossing (1983). Kate Bush worked on the title song in a duet with lead singer and lyricist Stuart Adamson. The album's first single, "Look Away", was an Irish number one, and was also the group's biggest hit single in the UK, reaching The album reached number 2 in the UK Albums Chart.

I've never seen you look like this without a reason. Another promise fallen through. Another season passes by you. I never took the smile away from anybody's face. And that's a desperate way to look for someone who is still a child. In a big country dreams stay with you. Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside. Stay alive, here we go. I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered. But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered. I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert
