BARBRA STREISAND lyrics - Take Me To The World

BARBRA STREISAND
"Take Me To The World"

Let me see the world with clouds
Take me to the world
Out where I can push through crowds
Take me to the world

A world that smiles
With streets instead of aisles
Where I can walk for miles with you

Take me to the world that's real
Show me how it's done
Teach me how to laugh, to feel
Move me to the sun

Just hold my hand whenever we arrive
Take me to a world where I can be alive
The world is better here
I know I've seen them both

Let me see the world that smiles
A poet doesn't count for much out there
Take me to the world

We'd be cold and hungry in the winter
Somewhere I can walk for miles
A shabby room with cracked plaster
Take me to the world
You couldn't get a job

With all around things growing in the ground
We'd end up hating each other
We'd have fights, you'd cry
Where birds that make a sound are birds

Let me see the world that's real
I have seen the world
Show me how it's done
And it's mean and ugly

Teach me how to laugh, to feel
We could laugh together
Move me to the sun
Stay here with me

Just hold my hand whenever we arrive
Stay here, I love you but we're happy here
Let it be a world with you, stay with me
Any other world with you
Take me to a world where I can be alive

Do you want the world?
Well then, you shall have the world
Ask me for the world again
You shall have the world

A world of skies
That's bursting with surprise
To open up your eyes for joy

We shall see the world come true
We shall have the world
I won't be afraid with you
We shall have the world
You'll hold my hand and know you're not alone

You shall have the world to keep
Such a lovely world you'll weep
We shall have the world forever for our own
