from by Mr. Strange



I, I came to see,
I came to feel, and I came to know,

As I began to breathe,
It became too real, the depths the below,

This world, it can be cold,
And the hurt can be all too much,

But you, you kept me safe,
With your words, with your touch,

And I dreamed that I could stay,
But it’s not my world, it never was,

So I, I’m leaving now,
You’re found, and I’m forever lost,

Put on your make up and head out the door,
To give a salute to the boys home from the war,
The day is joyous, wonderful, like T.V.
The crowd sings along to a half forgotten tune,

We run for shelter to hide from the rain,
Please take my hand and lend me your name,
Swing low and proud, always fighting a feeling,
Tell me something better is coming soon,

You hold and kiss me, my cigarette falls to the floor,
Let’s consume all we have, just to want more,
Oh, you look so pretty, an upstanding citizen,
All our histories repeating, just deja vu?

Don’t worry my dear, we’ll find someone to blame,
Tragedy and beauty are one and the same,
People are scared, lost in their millions,
But we put a man on the moon
Oh, it’s beautiful,

It’s beautiful.
What a wonderful world,
