I Told My World To Go Away (and She Did) Lyrics

by Conway Twitty

I grew tired of the world that I was living in
I looked around and found another world to take me in
It was bright and new with skies of blue not like my skies of gray
And so I told my world to go away

This world's not big enough for both of us so one of us must go
My memory burns with unkind words I said
This world's not big enough so one of us must break away and so
I told my world to go away and she did

What makes a man think that he can turn his world away
To wander through a world that's new and then return someday
To the one he knew was good and true the one he loved at home
I ask my world to take me back but she won't

This world's not big enough
