lyrics

There's A World

You ask your best friend for some nice advice
What you might do with your life and time
He said, “You were dumb and you won’t succeed”
Right then and there you were about to cry
About to cry so sad

Don’t you cry there’s a world
There’s a world
Passing by
Why do you let it pass?
Find your world
Grab your special world
It’s your life - your life
What to do - and your choice

I feel you can do ok
It’s hard to face things don’t run away
I’ll be by your side
You won’t even know
I’ll send your spirit the healing of
The healing of above

Don’t you cry there’s a world
There’s a world
Passing by
Why do you let it pass?
Find your world
Grab your special world
It’s your life - your life
What to do - and your choice

You are strong
I’ll make you strong
You’ll be strong
So you won’t just survive
You’ll climb and have a choice tonight
You won’t fall I’ll hold you up
You won’t fall
You’ll be the strongest thing
That I ever did see

You answer the ad for a job interview
They are so harsh they intimidate you
They say “We are busy we don’t have time”
You stop and think
Now what can I do what can I do at all?

Don’t you cry there’s a world
There’s a world
Passing by
Why do you let it pass?
Find your world
Grab your special world
It’s your life – it’s your life
What to do - and your choice
They will say you will flop
They will hold you down
They will laugh as you fall
They don’t care for you
It’s your choice
Try and break free - if you can
