When I Look At The World Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When you look at the world
What is it that you see?
People find all kinds of things
That bring them to their knees

I see an expression
So clear and so true
That changes the atmosphere
When you walk to the room

So I try to be like you
Try to feel it like you do
But without you it's no use
I can't see what you see
When I look at the world

When the night is someone else's
And you're trying to get some sleep
When your thoughts are too expensive
To ever wanna keep

When there's all kinds of chaos
And everyone is walking lame
You don't even blink now do you?
Or even look away

So I try to be like you
Try to feel it like you do
But without you it's no use
I can't see what you see
When I look at the world

I can't wait any longer
I can't wait
'Til I'm stronger
Can't wait any longer
To see what you see
When I look at the world

I'm in the waiting room
I can't see through smoke
I think of you and your Holy Book
When the rest of us choke

Tell me, tell me, what do you see?
Tell me, tell me, what's gonna be?
