The World I Know

(composers: Ed Roland; Ross Childress)

Has our conscience shown
Has the sweet breeze blown
Has all the kindness gone
Hope still lingers on

I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in New York City
And I don’t know why

Are we listening
To hymns of offering
Have we eyes to see
That love is gathering

All the words that I’ve been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding into one
Into one

So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
‘Cause it’s the world I know
It’s the world I know

I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in New York City
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why

So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
‘Cause it’s the world I know
It’s the world I know

Yeah, I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
‘Cause it’s the world I know
It’s the world I know
