    "Something Big" is about Shawn's quick rise to fame. Ido Zmishlany one of the writes says "If you can imagine, we're on this tour bus driving to these 3,000 seat shows where all these kids are singing every single word to the songs that we just wrote three months ago with a kid that wasn't signed yet," It is reflecting on how quick Shawn rose to fame.

    Like so many songs; it has multiple meanings. Sure, it can mean he is having amazing success for teenager from the Toronto burbs. But if you watch the video it's also about a teenage boys morning erection.

    This song is about how quickly Shawn gained his success, because he quickly went from a Canadian teenager doing covers in his bedroom to a young man selling out concerts with a top song.

    I have been listening to this song forever, and I think that this as Shawn's big break. He rose up in the charts around the same time as this song was released, maybe even after. He knew that something great was going to happen to him, and it did. This song is about encouragement, and knowing that rewards always come around, even if they are hard to find. Thanks for your time.

    This song is about amazing moments like winning a medal, scoring a goal, and knowing something great is about to happen.
