lyrics

When the World Was Small

Did you think it was gonna stay dark forever
Did you think that the sun would never rise
Did you think you could keep me in the dark forever
Did you think I would never open my eyes

Now I’m awake and I’m not going back to sleep again
Eyes wide open and one foot out the door
It’s a big world outside but I didn’t know it then
It’s much too big for pretending anymore

When the world was small
I couldn’t see at all
All the things that you did when you did what you did to me
But now I see it all
Yeah I see it all
Everybody knows that the lights go on eventually

Did you think you could look me in the eye and lie again
I got your tell so fold your hand and run
Come back around and you might find out my friend
The games you’ve been playing I’ve already won

When the world was small
I couldn’t see at all
All the things that you did when you did what you did to me
But now I see it all
Yeah I see it all
Everybody knows that the lights go on eventually

Stranger listen
There’s something I need to say
I can forgive but I can’t forget and just walk away

When the world was small
I couldn’t see at all
All the things that you did when you did what you did to me
But now I see it all
Yeah I see it all
Everybody knows that the lights go on eventually
