It's a wonderful world and you take and you give
And the sun fills the sky in the space where you live
It's a day full of dreams
It's a dream of a day
And the joy that it brings nearly sweeps her away
It's a wonderful world as the buildings fall down
And you quicken your step till your feet leave the ground
And you're soaring above the sorrow below
And you're falling in love with those you don't know
And your heart feels so wide and your heart feels so strong
It was never a place that you felt you belonged
It's a wonderful world full of wonderful things
And the people fall down, abandon their dreams

I hear him
He's talking out loud
Sometimes he whistles while walking
How could he know any better?
I weep for him
I weep for him now

It's a wonderful world
It's a real crying shame
Because she's hurting herself in a violent way
And there's people she knows that won't even try
And they're trapped in their lives feeling terrified
And it's in times like these that you promise to call
But the scale of our love is diminished and small
It's a wonderful word and she doesn't know why
She wakes up each day and continues to cry

He's sleeping
He travels away
He's finding that it's too hard to bear
And with him every step of the way
I weep for him
I weep for him now

It's a wonderful world and you take and you give
And the sun fills the sky in the space where you live
